Femi Enigbokan

DALLAS—Eyemart Express, a national optical retailer, has named Femi Enigbokan as the company’s first chief growth officer. In this new role, Enigbokan will focus on expanding the optical retailer’s footprint, which currently stands at 231 stores throughout the U.S., and maintaining Eyemart Express’ position as a leader in the optical industry, according to the company’s announcement this week.  “I am pleased to have Femi join our Eyemart Express executive team as our first chief growth officer,” said Michael Bender, Eyemart Express’s chief executive officer.

“Femi’s track record in expansion-focused leadership roles across industries will be a tremendous asset for our team and our ambitious growth goals. His global experience and perspective will also enable us to find innovative solutions that will best help our customers see clearly.”
Femi joins Eyemart Express after six years at Yum! Brands, the corporation behind KFC, Pizza Hut, Taco Bell and other fast-food restaurants, 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 proud to join Eyemart Express and contribute to its expansion momentum,” Enigbokan said. “It has been exciting to watch Eyemart Express thrive and open new stores over the past year, which is counter to the current brick-and-mortar retail climate. I look forward to working closely with teams across the organization to disrupt the optical industry and extend the reach of accessible quality prescription eyewear.”
With 231 stores in 42 states, Eyemart Express ranks among the top 10 optical retailers in the country with its family of brands: Vision 4 Less, Visionmart Express, and Eyewear Express.
