Meet Sylvia Urbaniec, a driving force in the MES boardroom and on the fairway
It’s our pleasure to introduce Sylvia Urbaniec to the EyeMed team as senior director, strategic partners, reporting to Jason Rome, chief commercial officer, EyeMed. She’s excited about the opportunity to work for EssilorLuxottica and learn more about the global reach. Sylvia will continue to lead the operations for MES out of the Costa Mesa office and is also responsible for Blue Shield of California.
Sylvia brings over 28 years of vision industry experience with an extensive background in strategic planning, operational efficiencies, problem-solving, human resources and client management.
Sylvia was most recently chief operating officer of MESVision where she oversaw the strategic operational functions of the organization including developing business strategies, overseeing the daily operations of the company and setting aggressive goals. She began her career at MES as the human resources, claim and operations manager. Prior to joining MES, she worked for a dental HMO as well as a national staffing agency.
Sylvia holds a bachelor’s degree in business and merchandising from California State University, Long Beach. She also earned a master’s degree in counseling psychology from National University in Orange County, CA.
Not only does Sylvia help drive strategic initiatives at MES, she can also drive a mean golf ball in her off time. She has won numerous trophies and medals in amateur tournaments across multiple states. She approaches this complicated sport with the same passion, tenacity and commitment she has in her professional career. And, she may even have won a few tournaments in her favorite pair of glasses—her purple Oakley Frogskins.
Welcome to EyeMed, Sylvia.
