ELYRIA, Ohio – Invacare has appointed Ralf Ledda senior vice president and general manager of Europe, Middle East and Africa effective Nov. 1.

Most recently, he was the managing director of Alber. Invacare says it will expand the availability of Alber products as it continues its ongoing transformation to focus on clinical complex products and post-acute care.
