Sandbox Residents: Who We Are

Dawn Thompson

Dawn Thompson has an extensive marketing background in the ophthalmic field and brings more than 20 years of experience to Sandbox. During her career at Alcon, she successfully established the importance of practice development for several new surgical technologies in the United States. Most notably, she was instrumental in the success of the consumer and patient-awareness initiatives for the AcrySof ReSTOR IOL. On the creation of Sandbox, Ms. Thompson said, “I am so excited to launch this company. As longtime marketers ourselves, we know how important it is to have a strategic partner that truly understands your business. That’s why "Sandbox" is such a great name for us. When you think about it, a sandbox is a place to come together, think, dream, and create. Our experience enables us to be able to play creatively in anyone’s sandbox, and our size gives us the flexibility to be just what you need – from an extra set of minds to a full-service solution."
