Motzek’s appointment adds a key figure to the management of Europe’s leading online optician. Before his career at Mister Spex, he worked several years for the private equity company Apax partners and was engaged in a plethora of transactions in the areas of retail & consumer and business services. Motzek: “I see an enormous growth potential for Mister Spex in Europe. In many countries the online business for glasses, sunglasses and contact lenses is still in its infancy”.
Founder Dirk Graber will continue to be responsible for the departments business development, IT, finance & controlling, operations and HR. Mirko Caspar will continue to lead the marketing, CRM, category management, public relations and product management teams. In future he will also focus on growing the international markets from Berlin.
