The new office provides IP-related management services and software solutions for Southeast Asian countries. It means Dennemeyer can now service clients in all Association of Southeast Asian Nations countries.
In his new role as managing director, Jens Martin will be involved in developing and implementing marketing tools and initiatives, and will lead the company’s regional business development activities.
Martin has worked in Singapore since 2011, including as a senior consultant for trade promotion at the Singaporean-German Chamber of Industry and Commerce. He has also facilitated business collaboration between multinational corporations, embassies, and ministries and government agencies.
Reinhold Nowak, CEO of the Dennemeyer Group, said: “Our clear strategic vision is to become the number one IP provider worldwide. Driven by organic growth, not pushed by private equity investments, we constantly expand our global presence in order to provide the most comprehensive range of IP services as close to our clients as possible.”
He continued: “Southeast Asia is a fast growing region that plays an important role in that context. With many existing clients in the region and in order to better understand the local needs it was a logical step for us to establish an office there.”
Martin commented: “With more than 600 million people, ASEAN is one of the largest economic zones worldwide and is increasingly becoming a driver of global growth.”
He added: “By establishing a regional headquarter in Singapore, Dennemeyer shows its commitment to the region and we are thrilled to offer our renowned IP services and expertise in this burgeoning part of the world.”
