Interview with new Chair in latest issue of HouseMARQUES

The April 2021 issue of HouseMARQUES has been published and is available to read on the MARQUES website here.

It includes an interview with Joachim Hofmann of Syngenta (right), who became MARQUES Chair in March for a two-year term. He answers questions about his work in trade marks and the kinds of issues Syngenta faces, his involvement with MARQUES, his priorities as chair, and the key challenges facing IP practitioners.

Joachim took up his post during the Spring Team Meeting. At the same time, Antony Douglass of Specsavers became First Vice-Chair and Claudia Pappas of Thyssenkrupp became Second Vice-Chair.
