Eyemart Express has named its first-ever chief growth officer.

The optical retailer appointed Femi Enigbokan to the role, which will focus on expanding the company’s footprint. Eyemart Express currently operates 231 stores throughout the United States. 

Enigbokan joins Eyemart Express after six years at Yum! Brands, where he served in various leadership roles aimed at expansion. Most recently, he oversaw finance and real estate teams as the chief development officer for the KFC Division in South Africa. 

“I am pleased to have Femi join our Eyemart Express executive team as our first chief growth officer," says Michael Bender, Eyemart Express CEO. "Femi's track record in expansion-focused leadership roles across industries will be a tremendous asset for our team and our ambitious growth goals.”
