Eric Davis, WG ’96 - Alumni News

Eric Davis invites healthcare alums to join him for a beer the next time they are passing through Sydney, Australia.  “After 7.5 years with Abbott Diabetes Care in the SF Bay Area, this is really big news for me and my family.  As of mid-February, I will be the new Head of Innovation for Cochlear, Limited, the world’s leader in implanted hearing aids. Cochlear has a very, very strong R&D organization, but the creation of an innovation function within their Global Strategic Marketing group is an indication of their intention to become even more “customer-centric” in their visioning of new, future products and services.  With the great success of Freestyle Libre, I hadn’t been looking to leave Abbott Diabetes Care, but I quickly became very impressed with how aggressive Cochlear has been in its category, and realized I will likely be able to make an even bigger impact at Cochlear.  Our company’s global headquarters are located on the Macquarie University campus 10 miles northwest of the Sydney Harbor Bridge.  On the weekends, you can find me at the Sydney Rowing Club or with my family on one of the many beaches North of Manly.”
