Article

Vistakon has created a new professional development group that combines its professional affairs, ODLean consulting program, and optometry school educational efforts into one department.

Jacksonville, FL-Vistakon, a division of Johnson & Johnson Vision Care Inc., has created a new professional development group that combines its professional affairs, ODLean consulting program, and optometry school educational efforts into one department.
 

  • Damian May, PharmD, MBA, has been appointed senior director, Strategy & Professional Development, responsible for working with the new organization to set the vision, strategy and roadmap for the Group to meet the changing demands of the optometric marketplace.

  • Dick Wallingford, OD, has been named senior director, Professional Affairs. In this expanded role, Dr. Wallingford will continue to lead the company’s professional affairs activities with associations and eye care practitioners, as well as oversee management of its Optometry School programs.

  • W. Lee Ball, OD, FAAO, will continue to work with Dr. Wallingford to support these efforts.
     

Said Dave Brown, Vistakon president: “Under Damian and Dick’s proven leadership, we believe we are well poised to help current and future optometrists prepare for and readily adapt to a complex and fast-changing healthcare environment.”
