“After many years at the helm of organizations that rely on International Vision Expo as the must-attend industry event — not only for generating sales leads, but to build and increase brand awareness and network with buyers and business leaders — I’m very excited to join the team responsible for developing the programming and events that bring together the entire optical community,” Barkley said.

He will officially begin his new role on Jan. 16.
