Aubert - worldwide experience, strong audiology and business background

In the industry for over thirty years - and once a customer of Cochlear, where she has now worked for the past 28 years - Aubert has worked across three continents including Africa, Europe and North America. She began as a Clinical Specialist in Cochlear Europe in 1994, then proceeded on to Clinical Manager, Area Manager for Northern Europe & South Africa, General Manager of UK/Ireland/South Africa and Regional Director of Europe North; then within Cochlear Americas, she went on to Director of Clinical Services, Regional Director of Sales, Director of Professional Marketing, and Vice President of Sales.

Aubert holds a Bachelor of Arts in communication disorders, a Master of Arts in audiology and a Master of Business Administration. Her first contact with Cochlear was as a primary research audiologist working on the original cochlear implant clinical trials in the United Kingdom.

Outgoing Cochlear President, Tony Manna

After 17 years of service, Tony Manna leaves the post of President, praising his successor's "broad range of experience within Cochlear and her deep knowledge and understanding of our customers"

“I’m pleased to pass the torch to Lisa as she takes the lead of this incredible organization," said Manna.

Aubert says she is "humbled" to take over the leadership for the Americas region at Cochlear. "I’m inspired daily by our recipients and our employees who tirelessly serve our customers, and I will work hard to continue to deliver results so we can help more people hear and service those who will be with us for a lifetime,” the new President affirmed.
