AIPEX announces the upcoming retirement of Frank Reijnen and the appointment of Rob Davey as incoming Chief Executive Officer
ROTTERDAM, April 4th 2022 -- AIPEX, the leader in providing cost and time efficient pan-European IP portfolio management solutions announces senior leadership changes.
It has been twelve years since Frank Reijnen saw that intellectual property services demanded critical redesigned processing in order to fulfil the future requirements of large multinational companies. Starting with four well established IP firms in the major European countries this was developed into AIPEX, now 250+ attorneys in 13 European countries, serving North American, Chinese, and European corporate clients. AIPEX firms cooperate to render unparalleled service in IP at a competitive price level.
Obsessed with client service, Frank is proud to say that AIPEX has never had any complaint from any client. Now at the age of 68 heading into retirement, Frank hands over the reins to Rob Davey.
Rob joins AIPEX from Clarivate's IP Group where he held senior leadership roles in customer care and professional services and most recently was Vice President of Strategy during a period of accelerated expansion for the world's largest IP service provider. During his 23-year career in intellectual property Rob has spent time at patent and trademark information service providers as well as domain name registries and registrars.
Rob said "I'm thrilled to join AIPEX at such an exciting time for the firm, Frank has created a unique value proposition which perfectly meets the needs of today's evolving IP landscape. I'm looking forward to working with the AIPEX team and member firms to lead the company into a new phase of increased growth. By combining AIPEX's unrivalled geographical breadth and diverse expertise with innovative legal technology we will continue to drive the very highest customer delight".
Frank said “I have always emphasised that all long term business success is based on trust and friendship. In the relationship with clients, colleagues and business partners this is of vital importance, so it has been and shall remain the cornerstone of AIPEX”.
