Stefan Danaher

Quality and Technical Manager

Why did you join BBGR?

As part of the Essilor Group for the better part of a decade, I joined BBGR in March 2011 because I knew that it was at the beginning of a journey, and that there would be opportunity to grow and develop personally, and help the business grow.

What do you do on a day to day basis?

Put as succinctly as I can, my role is to effect change and maintain standards. I look after the Quality and Technical teams, and their role is to constantly review our processes and products, and work towards implementing new systems to help make us more efficient.

What are the biggest challenges you face in the business?

Maintaining a good work/life balance. I love what I do and sometimes take too much work home with me, or worse, I stay at work far later than I should! I am getting better at this now though!

How has BBGR supported your career and ambitions?

BBGR has helped me understand the skills that needed to be developed, and those that need to be adapted or masked, to allow me to move forward in my career. The advice, support and guidance I have received has been incredible.

Interesting fact about you (A bit of fun)

Although able-bodied, I played Wheelchair basketball for 5 years with the Birmingham Buzzards. I was awesome!
