I joined ipan in April 2015. I lead sales and field operations for the US division, expanding our reach and helping to develop the infrastructure needed to support a growing US market. My responsibility is to ensure that US customers understand our value proposition and that we deliver on what we promise.
I have more than 25 years of legal management, sales and marketing experience. Having built a career founded on managing and nurturing growing companies, I was recognized by ALM’s The National Law Journal as one of the top 50 “Intellectual Property Trailblazers & Pioneers” in 2014. I am excited to be a part of ipan – what many believe to be the next ‘great thing’ in IP management.
Before joining ipan, I was COO for ITIP ProFiciency, a cost management company in the US. Prior to ITIP, I was a SVP for ELM Solutions (previously DataCert) leading worldwide sales and engineering the industry’s first dedicated IP ebilling solution for Global 1000 corporations. I was also previously VP of Professional Services at Thompson Reuters, creating the company’s project management and professional service organizations and consulting with Global 1000 corporations and Am Jur 500 law firms. I also led the company’s renewal departments managing more than 1,500 outside counsels and agents.
I earned a bachelor’s degree in political science and public management from Oakland University and a JD from the Michigan State University College of Law. I live in Michigan with my wife and four kids. I love fishing and am a dedicated sports fanatic.
We have all of the ingredients needed for positive change – a great team, a commitment to excellence and the talent to continue to grow and scale. ipan will drive the new paradigm for IP support products and services and I’m pleased to be a part of it.
