In 2014 UCP will be presenting Sacramento’s premier humanitarian award to Rob Lynch, President and CEO of VSP GlobalSM, at the 2014 Humanitarian of the Year Award dinner.
Since joining VSP® as president and CEO in 2006, Rob has led the growth and global expansion of the company resulting in a $4 billion multi-faceted enterprise. Today, VSP provides vision insurance and benefits administration in Canada, the United Kingdom and Australia, operates eight technologically advanced optical laboratories, provides innovative e-commerce and practice management solutions to more than 29,000 doctors and, with the acquisition of Marchon eyewear in 2008, has a presence in more than 100 countries providing access to cutting-edge frame styles and prestigious brands.
The Humanitarian of the Year Award is an annual award given to individuals or organizations that have displayed a passion for life and a sincere desire to work toward enhancing the lives of others. Many of our award winners have made a significant contribution toward helping people with developmental disabilities like autism, epilepsy, intellectual disability, Down syndrome and cerebral palsy.
