“Mr Jarman has been Cochlear’s group general counsel since 2008 and has significant experience in corporate governance and legal compliance matters,” the company said.

Cochlear has been providing hearing device implants for more than 30 years. In its latest annual report, the company cites World Health Organisation (WHO) figures that say 360 million people around the world have a disabling hearing loss. The WHO estimated that only about 5 per cent of this global market use Cochlear’s products.
