Acquisitive boss eyes global growth

Imran has been recognised for his remarkable approach to growing one of the UK's most acquisitive groups of independent opticians. Starting with a single practice in Bolton funded by a modest £2,000 loan from his father, Hakim's entrepreneurial journey has been characterized by strategic acquisitions, averaging one independent optician firm every four days since the Covid pandemic. His vision extends beyond mere expansion, as he focuses on the succession planning of an industry where the average proprietor age is in the 50s.
