OTIS EYEWEAR, the 2016 & 2017 SIMA ‘Breakout Brand of the Year’ award nominee, and 2016 & 2017 SBIA ‘Sunglass of the Year’ award winner & nominee, today announces the appointment of Scott Lewis to the newly created role of Global Brand Manager. Lewis’s appointment to lead the global development of OTIS caps several successful years for the brand: OTIS has emerged as one of the industry’s most successful eyewear brands in the United States and Australia, driven by its dedication to producing premium eyewear using exclusively high-quality, distortion-free mineral glass lenses.
Lewis brings to OTIS decades of surf industry and specialised eyewear experience, having served as Director of International Sales at Oakley Inc, Commercial Director of Oakley Europe, International President at Globe and Director of Sales and Business Development EMEA at Fox Head, Inc. Lewis has also previously served as strategic advisor to Sp Optic Europe and award-winning French optical brand Parasite Design. Lewis was engaged by The Leisure Collective in December 2016 to assist in strategic planning for the OTIS brand and will join the team full-time, home-based in the company’s Australian office, in June.
Commenting on the appointment, The Leisure Collective International CEO Nathan Omodei said: “It’s been exciting having Scott involved with our group as we have mapped out OTIS’ future path. Scott brings years of international experience and eyewear knowledge to the table that will help build OTIS at a global level. We are really happy to have Scott back home and on board.” For his part, Lewis commented: “OTIS is absolutely ready to fire globally. The company strives for a level of excellence in product development and has a real hunger to improve and build. I couldn’t have been asked to join a better brand, a better team, or be given a better opportunity to grow a business internationally.”
