Jessica Leach, Co-Owner of Opt Eyewear Boutique
Jessica Leach is an operations and finance professional turned sales rep and optical boutique owner. After college, Jessica’s first job was as the Inventor Control Coordinator for a retail shop with five locations. Here, she improved control systems, streamlined ordering and transferring, and improved profitability. She did the same with multi-location restaurants and national construction companies by closely monitoring the top-line and making daily adjustments to improve the bottom-line. As an account executive, she increased sales by cultivating relationships with accounts through a combination of techniques, each one specific to that client’s needs. The next chapter combines it all into a passion project. She’s the Co-Founder of the North East Optical Show, a trade show focused on independent eyewear, both promoting independent frame collections, labs, and technology, as well the shops and doctors who feature them.
Treating your optical like a business – not a medical practice – and staying true to your principles can bring long-term optical success.
