Gene Quinn, IPWatchdog Founder and CEO, has been named to the IAM Strategy 300 – The World’s Leading IP Strategists for the third consecutive year. The IAM Strategy 300 “identifies the individuals who are leading the way in the development and implementation of strategies that maximize the value of IP portfolios.”
The list is compiled via an extensive research process including online nominations, telephone, email and in-person interviews. To make the list, individuals must be nominated by at least three peers from outside of their own organization, followed by rigorous analysis of the individual’s contributions by a team of researchers. This year, IAM began its research process from scratch, so that even those strategists who were listed in 2018 had to meet the same selection criteria as those listed for the first time.
Speaking from the IAM IPBC Global 2019 Conference in Boston, Massachusetts, Quinn said that he is thrilled to be recognized for a third time. “To be nominated by my peers and listed alongside so many of my esteemed colleagues and mentors is truly an honor,” Quinn said.
The IAM Strategy 300 includes individuals across a range of sectors and backgrounds, from IP sales and acquisition to finance, legal, licensing and tech transfer, to name just a few.
