Safe Orthopaedics expands into Germany


Safe Orthopaedics has announced that it is expanding into Germany, and has appointed Jochen Esser as head of Sales Germany.

According to a company release, Jochen has over 25 years’ sales development and sales force leadership experience in the spinal surgery sector, both in Germany and in international markets. Before joining Safe Orthopaedics, Jochen held various sales positions with Zimmer and DePuy Synthes.

In 2010, he joined K2M, a leader in minimally invasive techniques for back surgery, as head of the Germany, Austria and Switzerland region where he built a team of seven sales representatives and more than tripled the sales base.

Since 2015, Jochen has been head of sales Germany at Joimax, a specialist in endoscopic solutions for minimally invasive back surgeries. In this role, he also built up the company’s sales in Austria and Switzerland.

Esser says, “I will initially focus on traumatology to establish our sales base in Germany in this key segment before building a larger sales team and catering to the degenerative condition segment.”
