HOYA is one of the largest eyeglass lens manufacturers in the world. Their vision is to further enhance their position as a trusted partner for clients, who are mainly opticians and retail chains. Meanwhile, they will work closely with customers to further expand the category. The Global Customer and Shopper Marketing Manager’s goal will be to embed their new customer-oriented approach throughout the organization.

About HOYA

Many eyeglass wearers worldwide have HOYA lenses, but often are not aware of it. This aligns with the humble and pragmatic culture of the Japanese-origin company, where their products and quality take precedence. And thanks to their wealth of knowledge and expertise, HOYA supports industry specialists to deliver the best eye care and service to their customers and patients.

For more than eighty years, the company has been dedicated to safeguarding and assisting eyeglass wearers throughout their lives and changing needs. HOYA employs over 35,000 people worldwide, and operates in 160 offices and subsidiaries. There are about 150 employees based in their global hub location in Amsterdam.

Customer & Shopper Marketing Team
The newly established Global Customer and Shopper Marketing team plays a vital role in HOYA’s ongoing pursuit to maintain its leading position in the eye care industry. They work within the Global Marketing department, report directly to the CMO, and closely collaborate with the sales team. Their main goal is to promote category growth by providing customers – mainly independent opticians and retail chains – with insights into category and shopper behaviors. This way, they can identify growth opportunities and identify the most effective strategies to capitalize on. The team translates global company strategies that match highly personalized customer needs. It’s a collaborative effort between global teams, from brand and category to communications, as well as local marketing and sales teams in the many regions where HOYA is active.
