OrthoLite expanded its global sales management team in Europe, appointing Marisa Costa as sales manager for Portugal.

Costa has an extensive footwear development and design background, working with brands and factories. Costa was recently an account manager and product developer at Selco Footwear in Porto. 

“We are thrilled to welcome Marisa to our global OrthoLite family,” said CB Tuite, chief sales officer, OrthoLite. “Marisa resides in proximity to Porto, where much of the footwear production is done in Portugal, and she has excellent relationships with the top footwear brands and factory groups throughout the region. Her position will help strengthen our brand partnerships and grow our business within this region, specifically our OrthoLite facility in Spain.”

Costa’s hire follows the recent expansion of the company’s facility in Albacete, Spain. Its global footprint and vertically-integrated structure allow OrthoLite to serve better localized partners, mainly European brands and increase capacity and speed to market.
