AUSTIN, Texas, (December 1, 2017) – Ottobock HealthCare, a world-leading supplier of innovative solutions for people with limited mobility, is pleased to announce that Emily Gibson is the new Senior Customer Service Manager at its North American corporate office in Austin, Texas.

“I am excited to share my passion for helping customers with a larger audience,” Gibson said. “I will be managing NA customer service, customer operations, inside sales, and consumer support.”

Gibson, who brings over 16 years of experience working for the medical device technology company, moved to the Austin location three years ago to build the new customer service operation.
