Luxottica founder and chairman Leonardo Del Vecchio is blowing out 80 birthday candles this month. To celebrate, he is giving the eyewear firm’s  8,000 employees in Italy a share award worth about 9 million euros, or $10 million at current exchange, with an aggregate maximum of 140,000 Luxottica Group shares to be distributed.

“A sincere thank you to the group’s employees in Italy, those at the heart of Luxottica’s success,” said Del Vecchio. “With this small gesture, I would like to show how important the employees are to me: I truly feel as if we are family.”
