Atkinson brings over 18 years of experience in global operations and supply chain leadership roles to Myrtle, as well as extensive knowledge in designing and implementing operational excellence programs.
Prior to joining Myrtle, Atkinson was senior vice president of operations and supply chain for Essilor of America, a $3B business unit of Essilor Group, the global leader in ophthalmic optics. In this role, he led more than 4,000 employees in manufacturing and supply chain, who helped correct and protect the visual health of more than 25 million consumers each year.
