Marketing Patent Agent @ Pronovem Intellectual Property Group

As a junior Patent Bio-Engineer, I got training in major industrial IP departments and evolved towards an IP manager focusing on organizing the company’s IP-portfolio in close collaboration with external private practices. Here, apart from having the different cases running, the emphasis laid on finding a correct compromise between sales, marketing, R&D and business management policy when dealing with the company’s Intellectual Property. Client contact and (internal) networking were part of a daily job.

I joined Pronovem in 2013 as an IP Marketing consultant and I am further specializing in company IP trajectory assessment and mediation and able to play an active role in its implementation.

Pragmatic with an entrepreneurial spirit, I live a life with a passion for organic farming too.
