Irvine, CA-based Freedom Innovations in November announced that Maynard Carkhuff, its vice chair and chief innovation officer, was elected to the California Orthotic & Prosthetic Association’s (COPA’s) board of directors at that organization’s annual meeting in San Francisco.
“It’s an honor to represent Freedom Innovations while stepping into a leadership role alongside my industry colleagues at COPA,” Carkhuff said. “COPA does essential work promoting the art and science of orthotics and prosthetics to create and communicate innovative solutions for positive patient experiences—which dovetails perfectly with our own mission at Freedom. I look forward to the opportunity to contribute, particularly in the areas of growing membership and strategic planning.”
Carkhuff joined Freedom in 2005 with more than 25 years of leadership experience, including president and CEO of Össur North America and president and CEO of Flex-Foot, according to a Freedom release.
