Essilor Canada announced today the nomination of Christophe Perreault as President, effective immediately. Christophe Perreault was previously Chief Financial Officer
of Essilor Canada and has held several leadership positions within Essilor International throughout his eight-year tenure with the company.

“Christophe was an obvious choice to lead Essilor Canada, bringing both a deep strategic understanding of our company and our operations, a sound financial background, as well as an unwavering commitment to Essilor’s mission of improving lives by improving sight,” said John Carrier, Chief Operating Officer, Essilor International.

Christophe succeeds Barbara Heffez-Piper who will join the team responsible for the Essilor and Luxottica integration in North America. The company thanks her for her passion and accomplishments during her time at Essilor Canada.

“Making eyecare and vision health a key priority is something I’ve always been passionate about. In Canada, the demand for vision correction and vision protection continues to grow and so is the number of Canadians with unmet vision needs. I am committed to continue working with our team, the industry, and our valued eyecare professionals to raise awareness about the importance of eye health in my country, as well as to provide the highest quality products and services to answer these growing needs. We must ensure everyone has access to their best possible vision to reach our goal of eradicating poor vision in one generation,” said Christophe Perreault, President, Essilor Canada.
