VP Intellectual Property Strategy
Mark began his intellectual property career as a patent examiner at the United States Patent and Trademark Office, where he obtained an exclusive set of skills that he has used throughout his subsequent career as a U.S. registered patent agent to obtain patents for leading-edge start-up and fortune 100 companies such as Seagate, CareFusion and IBM. In addition to global patent prosecution, prior art studies, technology landscapes, portfolio due diligence, product infringement studies, freedom to operate studies, I.P. mining and education sessions and seminars, trademark and copyright filings, and I.P. review of contracts, Mark continues to specialize in ground up creation, implementation and management of I.P. departments, patent portfolios, and patent processes.
For enjoyment, Mark likes go on bike rides with his wife on his wood bike and to take long walks with his two Australian Shepherds. Mark also continues to apply his engineering skills to home-brew type electronics and automotive projects.
