Drive continuous improvement in existing trademark practices, including procurement, policy and training.

Work closely with team of trademark specialists to manage and optimize value from trademark budget.

Manage work performed by outside service providers, including outside counsel.

A solid record of brand protection, global trademark office experience and thorough understanding of U.S. and foreign trademark law and enforcement practices.

Comprehensive experience (1) developing and setting strategies to identify and resolve trademark infringement, (2) prosecuting counterfeiters, domain name registrants and trademark squatters, and (3) training internal stakeholders on best practices for building and protecting brand value.

Experience conducting online investigations, notice and take down procedures, and other trademark and brand protection mechanisms.

Experience with domain name portfolio management and enforcement actions, including UDRP proceedings.

Demonstrated abilities to manage outside counsel, control costs, and exercise sound business and legal judgment.

Exceptional interpersonal and communication (written and verbal) skills, strong initiative, results-orientation, collaborative/team instinct, can-do attitude, and demonstrable history of working collaboratively and effectively across organizational and geographic boundaries.
