New CEO for INTA
The International Trademark Association (INTA) has elected Etienne Sanz de Acedo as its new CEO.

The Spanish-born trademarks expert joins the association from the EU Office for Harmonization for the Internal Market (OHIM) where he currently serves as a member of the cabinet of the president and head of communications.

Former president of INTA Gerhard Bauer said: “[Sanz de Acedo]’s extensive knowledge of the trademark and IP issues affecting all of our members as well as his meaningful relationships within the industry makes him the right choice to continue INTA’s growth and strengthen its global influence.”

Sanz de Acedo will replace departing CEO Alan Drewsen in the summer, relocating from Spain to be based at INTA’s global headquarters in New York.

Drewson has expressed his satisfaction with the appointment, saying: “Under [Sanz de Acedo]’s leadership, INTA will remain steadfast in advocating for the public policy issues of greatest consequence to our growing membership.”

“I congratulate my friend and colleague on his selection by the Board to lead this outstanding association.”

Sanz de Acedo has said that he will “look forward to working closely with the impressive INTA team to support their professional growth while building our international presence”.
