Zyloware announces the promotion of Janna Neal and George Sticos


(PRESS RELEASE) Zyloware announces the promotion of Janna Neal to Senior Vice President of Operations and George Sticos to Senior Director, Global Operations, where they will continue to oversee Zyloware’s operations and sales divisions.

Joining the Zyloware family more than 20 years ago, Janna Neal is Senior Vice President of Operations for Zyloware, where her role is changing drastically by the day. Recognized as cool, calm and collected, Janna works with management teams to formulate policies, manage operations and plan for overall business success.

James Shyer says: “As a young woman 20 years ago, Janna applied to us for a part-time receptionist position. 20 years later, she leads the operations of our entire organization. Janna has earned the love and respect of everyone who works with her inside and outside of Zyloware.

Christopher Shyer says, “Janna’s work with organizations such as the OWA and The Vision Council has made her an industry superstar as an advisor and mentor to so many. Janna has certainly earned her high position within our company, and we are very proud to have the opportunity to work with her on a daily basis.

Janna is currently a board member of the Optical Women’s Association and was one of Vision Mondays 2018 Most Influential Women in the mentor category.

Janna earned her Bachelor of Science in Commerce after spending 2 years majoring in Graphic Design at the New York Institute of Technology (where she learned she gravitated more toward the behind-the-scenes operations of a business). She spends her free time reading (hardcover books), watching crime shows, and recently found a love for yoga (the quiet is so soothing). She’s starting to be a plant mom (but she admits she hasn’t quite mastered that yet).


Joining the Zyloware family over 29 years ago, George Sticos was promoted to Senior Director of Global Business Operations. In this role, he will oversee day-to-day operations and sales functions for Zyloware’s global sales and customer service teams. His knowledge and leadership skills have been integral to the development and implementation of corporate strategies. He oversees a team of 7 people who are critical to our overall guest experience and continue to exceed expectations. His understanding of Zyloware’s sales processes and overall business strategies has been key to his success.

James Shyer says: “George chose to spend his professional career with us in 1993 and has been a key member of our family ever since. It has also been a pleasure to work closely with George throughout my professional career. »

Christopher Shyer says: “He has the meticulous task of ensuring that our global sales team has the support necessary to support all aspects of our customers’ needs, which he and his team do using the unique attention and accurate to George’s details. George has absolutely earned his elevated new role within Zyloware, and we look forward to working with him for many years to come.

George holds a Bachelor of Science degree from St. John’s University. He is an avid golfer and collector of all things vintage, but above all loves spending time with his family and traveling.
