“Jayson’s recognition by IAM acknowledges AutoHarvest’s growing role in the manufacturing sector as a neutral meeting place for innovation collaboration.
DETROIT, Michigan (PRWEB) June 15, 2015
The AutoHarvest Foundation, a global on-line meeting place for innovators of all types with an interest in advanced manufacturing, announced today that its co-founder & president, Mr. Jayson D. Pankin was ranked one of the World’s Leading Intellectual Property Strategist for the second consecutive year.
The world’s leading IP strategists are named today in the online edition of a unique guide published by Intellectual Asset Management (IAM). IAM Strategy 300: The World’s Leading IP Strategists lists individuals that in-depth research has shown to possess world class skills in the development and roll-out of strategies that maximise the value of patent, copyright, trademark and other IP rights.
IAM researchers in the United States, Europe and Asia spoke to a wide range of senior corporate IP managers, as well as third-party IP service providers, in order to identify these IP leaders: men and women whose business is the creation, development and deployment of strategies that enable IP owners to gain maximum value from their portfolios. Only those individuals nominated multiple times by different parties as outstanding IP strategists are listed in the IAM Strategy 300.
For the first time, the 2015 edition of the IAM Strategy 300 includes individuals that work at operating companies. This reflects the growing importance that businesses across the world attach to having in-house IP value creation expertise, alongside the legal expertise that has traditionally characterised in-house IP functions. Notably, there is now an emerging group of senior corporate IP leaders that are not lawyers by training, but instead have backgrounds in other disciplines.
Alongside the operating company listees, the IAM Strategy 300 also features individuals on which the guide has always focused: third-party service providers. These too have a wide range of professional backgrounds and areas of specialisation, including: brokering, defensive patent aggregation, finance, insurance, management consultancy, the law, licensing, mergers and acquisitions, tax and valuation. They are based in centres across the world.
“As in previous years, we have dedicated significant editorial and research resources to ensuring we identify only world class IP strategists, so we are confident that all those named in the IAM Strategy 300 2015 fully merit the recognition that they have received,” says IAM editor Joff Wild. “With intellectual property now central to the success of so many companies across the globe, we are delighted that this publication has become the recognised source of reference for those seeking to identify the world’s leading IP strategists. What’s more, we believe that the roles all those named in the IAM Strategy 300 play is only going to increase in importance over the coming years. We salute each and every one of them.”
“Jayson’s recognition by IAM acknowledges AutoHarvest’s growing role in the manufacturing sector as a neutral meeting place for innovation collaboration. For example, the Ford Motor Company publicly announced utilizing AutoHarvest to assist in opening up its technology in the area of safety- inflatable seat-belts and vehicle electrification, underscores this growing industry practice” said founding AutoHarvest board member Dr. Val Livada, faculty member of the MIT Sloan School.
