Eyemart Express, a national optical retailer, has named Mike Nuzzo as chief executive officer.

Nuzzo brings business and operations experience to Eyemart Express from his previous role at Petco, where he most recently served as COO and president of Petco services. During that time, he helped develop its pet care center and veterinary strategy, as well as expanding its pet service offerings to improve customers’ shopping experience. Prior to Petco, Nuzzo was an executive vice president and chief financial officer at General Nutrition Centers, and also served in several financial and operational roles with Abercrombie & Fitch, including senior vice president of finance.

“I’m thrilled to join Eyemart Express as the demand for high quality glasses and ophthalmic care for adults and children continues to remain strong in North America,” comments Nuzzo. “Eyemart Express has positioned itself as a leader in the eyewear retail space and I look forward to working with their talented team as we continue to fulfill the vital need for fast service and prescription vision care, while generating positive clinical outcomes for our customers.”
