Eyebobs has tapped Michael Magerman as its first chief executive officer.
Magerman will focus on growing the eyewear company, which is best known for its affordable reading glasses priced around $75. It was founded in 2001 by Julie Allinson.
Magerman most recently served as president and ceo of Quickie Manufacturing Company, a cleaning tools manufacturer. Before that he founded Odyssey Golf, which produced golf putters. He sold the business to Callaway Golf in 1997.
“Eyebobs is a fun and exciting company with passionate people, great product and loyal customers. I look forward to helping lead and execute the next phase of Eyebobs’ growth,” Magerman said.
Eyebobs is based in Minneapolis and sold at a variety of retailers including Bloomingdale’s, Orvis and Neiman Marcus.
