OrthoLite hired Marc Kronenberg as development and commercialization director for OrthoLite Cirql with more than two decades of experience in global footwear manufacturing led by his expertise in mechanical engineering, design and systems innovation. He will be based in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, working from OrthoLite Cirql’s headquarters.

“It’s an honor to welcome Marc to the leadership team at OrthoLite Cirql during a tipping-point moment,” said Glenn Barrett, founder and CEO of OrthoLite. “Marc’s depth of manufacturing and business experience, coupled with his passion for bringing disruptive new products in sports and lifestyle to market, will drive successful commercialization of our incredibly innovative OrthoLite Cirql materials.
