What is included with our products and offers?
Supervista, brillen's parent company, was founded in Germany in 1997 by Matthias Kamppeter. Matthias, coming from an ophthalmological family and as a trained optician, spotted an opportunity to develop a hybrid model, uniquely combining online convenience with expert in-store optical advice.
Now, with over 1,300+ partner opticians and optical stores across Europe and USA Supervista brings great value lenses and frames to its customers every day, providing premium lenses and a wide range of designer frames to choose from.
Matthias Kamppeter Chairman of the Board/CEO
Matthias Kamppeter comes from an ophthalmological family. Both his father and his brother work very successfully as ophthalmologists in Bayreuth. Directly after graduating from high school, he trained as an optician, after which he went into business for himself in the summer of 1997. As a result, Matthias Kamppeter's first optician's shop was established in the Kamppeter family's medical center. Over many years he acquired a great deal of expertise in all areas of Rx lens production. In connection with international contacts, he was able to establish his own production methods, which combined high quality products with a focus on value. This enabled him to expand into a network of more than 20 optical stores.
Together with Daniel Thung, brillen.de Optik AG was founded in 2012. He developed the brillen.de hybrid model, which brings together independent opticians and value priced eyewear. In 2013, the company headquarters were relocated from Bayreuth to Wildau near Berlin due to the rapid expansion.
Matthias Kamppeter, as Chairman of the Board of Directors, is responsible for all business activities of the company, which has now been renamed SuperVista, AG. He develops the ideas and strategies that strengthen the cooperation with the Partner Opticals and that make the hybrid concept successful.
Daniel Thung Chairman of the Supervisory Board
Daniel Thung developed an early interest in stock exchanges and capital markets. In the course of his professional career, he spent six years as a TV news presenter at the Düsseldorf Stock Exchange, where he reported on daily stock market events. The participation in start-up companies and the consulting activities that resulted, led to a large network of investors and entrepreneurs. Having been friends with Matthias Kamppeter since childhood, Daniel could not help but to join in the implementation of the business idea of brillen.de. Together with other financiers from his network the concept was launched.
Daniel Thung is involved in several other young companies and advises them with his experience and know-how. His network of investors and his knowledge in the preparation of IPOs create the prerequisites for long-term growth and financing.
