(PRESS RELEASE) PHOENIX — In a move that will further strengthen Paragon Vision Science’s expansion across the U.S., the company has appointed Joel Kamp as U.S. commercial director. He previously was director of corporate accounts at CooperVision, where he focused on customer partnerships, satisfaction and growth. Paragon is part of the CooperVision Specialty EyeCare division.

In the new role, Kamp has responsibility for sales and marketing strategy and execution, including enhanced support for eye care professional (ECP)-centered initiatives.

“Joel’s 25 years of optometric and ophthalmological experience will help us further accelerate our growth and extend our myopia leadership in partnership with ECPs. We’re excited for him to play a significant role in shaping our in-market teams. That structure is unique, and specifically designed to promote practice expansion with the clinical support necessary for the successful adoption of specialty lenses,” said Rich Jeffries, president of Paragon.

Each regional Paragon team consists of an account manager and practice management consultant, who support ECPs to more fully integrate Paragon CRT and other contact lenses into their practices. This includes customized clinical educational experiences for individual practitioners and staff, with a focus on hands-on collaboration.

“These teams are already working with some of the top practices in the U.S.,” said Jeffries. “We’re seeing ECPs suddenly much more aware of the extent of clinical support, education and marketing tools and insights available from Paragon.

The CooperVision Specialty EyeCare division accelerates eye care professionals’ access to innovative products that help improve the way people see each day, with a focus on the development of myopia management approaches and visual correction of irregular corneas. It encompasses Paragon Vision Sciences, Blanchard Contact Lenses, Soflex, and Procornea, which operate independently while sharing technical, clinical and commercial knowledge, benefitting from CooperVision’s global presence and infrastructure.
