Mark Agnew

Founder & CEO

Mark Agnew is the founder of and the creator of its new brand, Pi Wear — a charitable brand of round, full-rim eyeglasses and sunglasses that was designed to transform the conscious eyewear industry.

Agnew knows firsthand what it’s like to live with severe vision loss. At 28, he was mugged and suffered injuries that led to complete vision loss in his right eye, necessitating a need for eyeglasses. After working nearly two decades on Wall Street and in the financial industry as an equity trader, including as VP of research at Lehman Brothers, in 2000 Agnew founded — an online, one-stop shop for eyeglasses, prescription lenses and sunglasses — to make purchasing eyeglasses an easier and less costly process. In May 2019, he released the book, Eyeglasses Buying Guide, which provides years of insights into a $26 billion industry to educate consumers and provide tips for purchasing eyewear.
