Injinji, the maker of the Original Performance Toesock, announced the hiring and promotion of three new team members in its sales, customer service and design departments.

Former Warehouse Associate Willy Vath has traded in his forklift for a phone with his new promotion to customer service associate. Vath has been an integral part of the Injinji team since 2015, helping with everything from shipping to the expansion of the new warehouse.

“I’m excited about this new challenge, as it has provided a new avenue for growth and development, helping me to become a key asset to this company,” he said.

Ken Philipp joins Injinji as sales operation and customer service administrator. In this dual position, he will help support the company’s domestic and international shipping, inventory and logistics planning, while also expanding his role to include overseeing the customer service team. “I’m thrilled to be in a vibrant, growing company and in a position that will bring new, unique challenges my way.”

Natalie Wong joins Injinji’s design department as a new junior graphic artist. Wong is a San Diego native and graduated from FIDM in 2016. “San Diego’s unique culture is where I found my passion for design. As a runner, yogi and hiker, it is a dream to be a part of a team where my pursuits and passions are celebrated and interwoven into the company ethos.”
