Leading prosthetics supplier Ottobock has appointed a new head of orthotics for its UK arm.

Kevin Green has already been at Ottobock for eight years and will now lead Ottobock’s orthotic business unit including clinical service, manufacture and product sales, as well as the responsibility for the sales for group manufactured products.

Green has ten years’ experience in the field of Orthotics, having graduated from the University of Strathclyde in 2007. He joined Ottobock in January 2009 as an orthotist, servicing clinical contracts throughout the Midlands before developing his role as business and clinical development manager.

In his newly-expanded role, Green will report to Andrew McLean, sales and marketing director.

Phil Yates, managing director at Ottobock UK, commented on the appointment: “Kevin has shown outstanding performance in his current role in profitably growing the business and I am therefore pleased to expand his responsibility to now include Orthotic product sales.”

Among Green’s most notable achievements is overseeing the orthotic care of Ottobock Paralympic ambassadors including Megan Giglia. Giglia suffered a stroke in 2013 and was prescribed a custom-made AFO by Green at Ottobock’s Minworth production unit in 2016. Giglia then went on to compete in the Rio Olympics and won the first gold medal for Team GB in Cycling.
