For IP Professionals worldwide, June is a significant month in which Intellectual Asset Management (IAM) releases their list of the Top 300 IP Strategists internationally. Each year, the industry is asked to submit anonymous recommendations of people they think deserve recognition for their continuing achievements in IP Strategy.
ClearViewIP are very proud to see the inclusion of two of our Directors within this list, for the third consecutive year. Jon Calvert, Managing Director, previously held a number of international R&D business leadership positions in technology businesses. Jon recognised the increasing importance and value of intellectual property and the emergence of IP as an asset class in its own right and consequently founded ClearViewIP in 2007. Colin Hunsley, Commercialisation Director, spent many years heading up Technology Commercialisation teams for high-tech opportunities and gained an outstanding track record of generating substantial revenues from licensing or selling the IP.
Jon's dedication to IP Strategy also saw him co-found INTIPSA (The International IP Strategists Association), a not-for-profit community set up to encourage, support and educate IP Strategists worldwide. His most recent INTIPSA activities have seen him contribute to the INTIPSA column in thelatest edition of IAM Magazine: 'Full Disclosure: the next big thing?'.
Colin's experience in Technology Commercialisation has led to his involvement with the Licensing Executives Society (LES), where he is on the council of LES Britain & Ireland. Within LES, Colin focusses on Healthcare, due to his significant experience of medical devices, and he is currently involved in setting up the LES Healthcare Committee.
