WestGroupe has appointed Dr. Francesco Ferro to the position of Export Sales Manager.
Based in Italy, Francesco will play a critical role in the expansion of WestGroupe outside of the North American market.
A 25 year sales and management veteran, Francesco has built a strong, loyal and long-term customer base since entering the eyewear industry 10 years ago.
