Andre Senyk – Founder and Chief Executive Officer of SpeckyFourEyes.com - in 2004 conceived the idea of selling glasses online whilst in his final year at University aged just 23.
Working with a local web development company, Andre created an online outlet which enabled him to provide customers a jargon free pleasant online shopping experience.
After months of preparation in 2005 the business was initially set up in a small bedroom in his parents’ home but shortly after became too small to operate from.
He therefore decided it was time to move the hub of the business to some local offices.
- Andre's huge achievements have been officially recognised and he's been rewarded by becoming a Regional Finalist in the Shell LiveWire Young Entrepreneur of the Year 2007 Awards.
- The university Andre graduated from also awarded him the Success in Business Award in 2007.
- In the same year Andre became the Eye4Enterpize Award Finalist.
Whilst studying for his Optics degree at University Andre noticed a 'subconscious' push towards eventually working for a standard high street optical store - but he wanted more than that and didn't want to follow the crowd. This drove and inspired him to create his own business in competition with the major high street optical retailers. Andre worked out the cost of manufacturing an average pair of glasses and found out that the high street stores were making a fortune. By creating an online outlet he has managed to keep overheads down, therefore enabling SpeckyFourEyes.com to sell glasses for as little as £12 - compared to the average UK High Street price of £148!
In 2010 Andre recruited several new key individuals and assigned them with strategic roles within his company. This was done to ensure that customers experience a high level of service throughout the ordering process. All glasses are assembled in-house by experienced Optical Lab Technicians and this ensures high quality glasses are sent directly to customers.
