Amanda Cranage on her remarkable journey to CEO


Myles Hume from Insight ophthalmic magazine sat down with Amanda Cranage to find out more about the journey that took her from orthoptist to CEO of Vision Eye Institute – Australia’s largest private provider of ophthalmic services.

Excerpt from the article:

In fact, Cranage was present before VEI’s [Vision Eye Institute’s] inception. She started in 1996 as an orthoptist, progressing to orthoptic team leader at Camberwell Eye Clinic – the eventual birthplace of Vision Group and, subsequently, VEI in 2001.

… “At Camberwell, I was running a 12-strong orthoptic team across a couple of locations and really enjoyed motivating and inspiring everybody. It became a great training ground for learning how to manage teams effectively and make sound decisions. But I felt I needed even more of a challenge – I guess I had reached a crossroads in my career.”
