“Dermot has been with Ocuco for over 17 years, and I am thrilled to add him to Ocuco’s Corporate Management Team. He has almost single-handedly been responsible for Ocuco‘s success in the North American market. Dermot has a unique understanding of the optical industry and our customer’s needs. He is an extension of our company values, and I am looking forward to seeing him execute his vision over the coming years,” explains Leo Mac Canna, Ocuco‘s CEO.
Dermot began his career with Ocuco after completing a BSc (Hons) in Information Technology. Starting as a Professional Services Engineer in the Operations Department, Dermot developed a keen understanding of Acuitas, Ocuco’s Practice Management System, and the software needs of optical retail chains, optical independents, and labs.
His aptitude for sales and business development was recognized during one of Ocuco’s largest European product rollouts. Following this, he joined Ocuco’s Sales Department, where he has successfully concluded many domestic and international deals and was promoted to Vice President of Sales for North America.
Dermot replaces Alice Austin, formerly Chief Sales and Marketing Officer, with immediate effect.
“I am delighted to take on the role of CRO in Ocuco and to build on the strong foundation Alice has put in place over the last 20 years. The last year has completely changed our industry‘s landscape and created great opportunities for companies to leverage technology to expand their business. Ocuco is uniquely positioned to help customers connect with their patients across all channels to provide patient care that exceeds expectations,” says Dermot.
