50 to Watch, as reported in Real Business

Call them the A-Team of optometry. This crack unit includes former Boots MD Ken Piggott, and Michael Kraftman, deputy chairman of white goods giant Tempo. Its mission? To buy up opticians, and unite them, under the brand name Optical Revolution, in a national chain. Right now the team is raising an initial £4.5m and refining the concept at two pilot stores. Within a year they plan to float on AIM and open the first 45 stores through acquisition. In two years they’ll have 400 stores. Specsavers, watch out!
