“We are already operating in eight markets with InterOpticuss”
With a well-structured and established career in the optical market, InterOpticuss CEO Benjamim Gonçalves defines the points that led him to pursue this recent project.
ÓpticaPro: How did you get into the world of optics and what was your professional journey to InterOpticuss like?
Benjamim Gonçalves: I entered the optics market in 1987 with a business proposal; the creation of a distribution company. After this first experience, I created OPB with other partners and in 2009 the GO Eyewear project appeared and was being implemented in Europe and taking its first steps. Then, I started assisting as a General Agent, then a Country Manager and finally as a Commercial Director until January 2019, so I was connected to GO Eyewear for 10 years. It was a very positive experience where I had the opportunity to grow professionally and I got to know about 50 different markets.
OP: With the focus on trade, importation and exportation of optical equipment, how has InterOpticuss evolved?
BG:InterOpticuss has been active for four months and is it the international arm of the Opticuss Group, with activity in Ukraine, Russia and Turkey. At this stage we continue to finalise the managerial and commercial team to enable growth and good quality standards in their services. However, we are already operating in eight markets between suppliers and direct contact with sales teams, as is the case in Portugal, Spain and Italy.
