OrthoLite®, the 25-year industry leader of branded, high-performance and comfort footwear solutions, expands its global sales management team in Europe and appoints Marisa Costa as sales manager for Portugal.
Costa has an extensive background in footwear development and design – working with both brands and factories. Most recently, Costa was an account manager and product developer at Selco Footwear in Porto. She has a Masters in Architecture as well as a degree in footwear design, and she is also fluent in both Portuguese and English.
“We are thrilled to welcome Marisa to our global OrthoLite family,” said CB Tuite, Chief Sales Officer for 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 OrthoLite’s facility in Albacete, Spain. The company’s global footprint and vertically-integrated structure allows OrthoLite to better serve localized partners, especially European brands, as well as increase capacity and speed to market.
