— EyeCare Services Partners Holdings LLC (“ESP”), one of the nation’s largest vertically integrated ophthalmologic and optometric services practices, today announced the addition of two new senior executives to the company’s management team: David L. Thomas will become president and chief operating officer; and Christopher R. Fusco will become vice president of business development. The company also announced that Richard C. Edlow, who served as ESP’s president, will be elevated to the role of executive chairman.
“We could not be more pleased with the addition of Dave and Chris to our team,” said Michael T. Fricke, CEO of EyeCare Services Partners. “Our ability to bring in seasoned professionals of their caliber is a testament not only to the growth we have experienced over the last year, but more importantly to the enormous potential our business model represents. I expect both of them to have an immediate and positive impact on our company.”
Fricke added, “Additionally, in remaining a truly physician-led company, Richard’s new role as executive chairman will focus heavily on physician relations. He, along with Dr. Brett W. Katzen, our chief medical officer, will be instrumental to our growth as we continue to integrate targeted, independent ophthalmologic and optometric practices onto our platform. Having an individual work directly with this community and who intimately understands both the medicine and the underlying business issues these practices deal with on a daily basis is critical.”
