"To meet the exponential growth of our customer footprint, we have brought on board two top executives to helm the expansion of our sales and customer service teams, which we anticipate will double in the next 12 months," said Bijan Khosravi. "As we now enter into the third phase of the company, driving hard toward cash flow breakeven, we could not be more pleased to have the senior leadership of John and Johnson as part of the Movaz management team. The relationships and operating experiences they bring will accelerate our path to be one of the top optical companies in the global market."
