There's No Party Like An OGI Party!

At the beginning of December, we had our annual sales convention in beautiful Miami! Our international team of Account Executives and company leadership came together to share insights from the road, learn about new product, and spend some time building sandcastles in the sun.

We had roundtable discussions led by our amazing team, product talks from our designers David Duralde and Wes Stoody, and inspirational marketing and sales information from our Chief Sales Officer Cynthia McWilliams and Marketing Director, Katja Beier. Suraiya Pillai-Khan, SCOJO Brand Manager, talked about what's new in the ready-to-wear luxury reader market, while Cassie Galonski, Office and Events Manager, helped Account Executives prepare for another exciting year of Trade Shows. In the spirit of putting our best foot forward, teams of Account Executives competed in a Booth Display Contest, putting together artful and fun tablescapes for OGI Eyewear brands. Optical Foundry's Director of Operations, Greg Hodgson, went over our B2B Buyer's Portal and ordering services. We were also joined by team members from the Brooks Group, who gave some wonderful sales trainings.

Special thanks go out to the Optical Foundry's CEO, Rob Rich, who was not only the main motivational speaker for the weekend, but a dapper and wonderful awards ceremony host! Also thank you to Sally Anton, our Customer Relations Manager, for supporting and helping through the weekend. It takes a team to pull off such a wonderful event!

This event was also a chance to recognize some of our incredible Account Executives for their achievements over the past year. Danielle Stevens was our Brand Champion for Article One, and is our first ever winner of the Digital Influencer Award. Mimi Prushan had the Fastest Growing Territory – and the Most New and Reactivated Accounts! Red Rose by OGI was most successfully represented by Mel Fedorkie and Denise Milner. Lynn Stewart was the Brand Champion for SCOJO New York – fitting, from our New York Account Executive. With a stand-out first year on team OGI, Leslie O'Neill was our Rookie of the Year! And our hometown hero, Trevor O'Brien was our OGI Eyewear Sales Representative of the Year, as well as the OGI and Seraphin Brand Champion.

The theme of the event, and the coming year, is Elevate: Elevating our product, our service, and our partnerships with incredible independent optical professionals. Check out the video below to see how our Representatives and Sales Team Elevate the experience for our customers every single day!

Cheers from Team OGI!
