)-- Virginia Eye Consultants is featured among the Top 20 fastest growing companies in Hampton Road.
“It's a fabulous honor," Chief Executive Karen Spencer said on being named to ‘The Roaring 20s’ for the second year in a row. At Virginia Eye Consultants, growth over the past few years has been unleashed in part by a new operational structure.
Spencer said, "We take extra efforts to ensure that our work culture is one of individual, personal growth as well as professional and corporate growth. The majority of the firm's growth has come in the past 4 years.”
Things have changed at the surgical and specialty eye care center. Revenue is up about 22 percent from 2010 to 2012 and they are headed for around 10.5 percent year over year revenue growth in 2013. They have added more than 20 employees since 2010 and have location expansion plans in the works.
Spencer further said she expects continued growth. Besides the main VEC location, there is a 4000 square foot satellite location in Suffolk. In January, VEC is slated to open a 5,000 square foot location in Suffolk.
This year, Virginia Eye Consultants celebrates 50 years of providing world-class eye procedures in Hampton Roads. Over the years, they’ve grown in both size and reputation, bringing industry-leading techniques and technology to their Norfolk and Hampton locations.
