Tucson, AZ (3 December 2020)- Riton Optics is pleased to announce the promotion of Dave Franklin to the position of Director of Operations for Riton Optics. Franklin will focus on managing customer service and oversee quality control operations. He previously served as the Quality Control Manager.

Franklin stated the following, “I feel like I joined this incredible team at just the perfect moment. Riton Optics is growing at a rapid pace, but we still maintain a small family atmosphere. Furthermore, the opportunity to work in this industry is a dream come true as cliché as that may sound.”

Franklin comes to Riton Optics with numerous years of experience as a general manager in the food industry supervising as many as 100 people at a time. He was born in Tucson, left for opportunities in other states but returned to the city he loves. Franklin grew up hunting and fishing with his family and has a passion for all things outdoors.

According to John Picsione, the Senior Vice President of Sales for Riton Optics, “Through his time as Quality Control Manager, Dave continually demonstrated an incredible work ethic. His hard work and dedication, paired with his knowledge and passion for the outdoors, made him the absolute best person to lead our growing operations team.”
