A track record of success
In my time here, I aim to link the Patent departments in Germany and the US even more closely and to harmonize work processes.
At the same time, I’m registering as an American patent agent so that I can represent LANXESS in dealings with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. I, and LANXESS of course, can benefit from this additional qualification and my extra experience after my return to Germany.
However, there are very different trophies to chase before I become registered as an American patent agent. In May, over 150 other employees and I ran in the Pittsburgh Marathon. Although it rained, the team was in great spirits, and the atmosphere along the entire route was fantastic: The crowd cheered us loudly all the way to the finish line. I’m already preparing for the Chicago Marathon in October. When I’m not training, I’m exploring New England—and I’ll soon be checking out the rest of the US, too.”
