Joanne Jackson

Treasurer

Visions joined the Chamber of Commerce 2014, as we felt at that time, it would be a good opportunity to meet and network with other businesses within the Witham district, and the Chamber of Commerce were developing a strong forward thinking strategy to support the work of the Town Team of we were already involved. The Chamber were introducing new initiatives and ideas which we wanted to support to improve business opportunities within Witham. It seemed a good idea to be in from the start!

When Tina Townsend approached me to stand as Treasurer, I knew the timing was perfect to take on this new role as my business experience will enable me to manage the accounts professionally and efficiently.

Visions of Witham has been ideally placed on Witham’s prestigious Newland Street since 2011, we are a independent family owned opticians and retailer, established 2006 in Maldon road with myself and a member of staff to now 4 members of staff and 2 optometrists. Through my work experience with Foresight Opticians, Sovereign Chicken producers, Cramphorn Garden Centre and some others I learned the skills needed to run my own business.

As the director I am responsible for financial forecast and planning, marketing, HR legislation, stock management, customer service and Optical legislation, all skills to support my additional role as your treasurer.

Visions of Witham is supported by Iceni laboratories’ (owned by my business partner /Husband) they produce all our lenses within Witham laboratory therefore we can provide a unique bespoke timely service for all our customers.

Something we pride ourselves on being able to offer value for money, a personal service and care for our customers, which is inline with what the Witham Chamber of Commerce thrives to also achieve.
