He was 67.

In the beginning, Berg served as CEO and president of Marchon. In 2008, Berg and partners sold Marchon to VSP Global.

Berg “left an incredible legacy behind, having built one of the world’s greatest and largest eyewear companies, which still thrives today thanks to his vision and competitive spirit,” said Rob Lynch, board member of VSP Global, according to WWD.
