<p><span class="xn-person">Richard Boadway</span> has over thirty years of experience in the areas of technology development and financing including involvement in IP business Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A), patent portfolio sales and active participation in IP licensing programs at multiple companies. Richard commented, "I am excited by the patent brokerage opportunity at UBM TechInsights. We have a unique value proposition which stems from our capacity to confidently assess the value of a portfolio and back it up with evidence of use. The UBM TechInsights organization is built on its integrity; its relationships with its world-class client base of technology companies; the industry's broadest library of technical analysis, including the business intelligence that results from that; and the cadre of almost 300 engineering and technical professionals who lead the world in technical IP services." He concluded, "The combination yields a powerful ability to value, market and find attractive patent portfolios for our clients."</p>
<p/>
<p><span class="xn-person">Harry Page</span>, CEO, said, "As our clients adopt the best practices of IP Lifecycle based management there has been an increasing need to facilitate acquisition and divestiture of intellectual property assets for them to manage their portfolios effectively.  The strengthened patent brokerage service will enable our customers to maximize their ROI and get the best value from their assets whether they are establishing an IP position or monetizing IP assets."</p>
<p/>
<p>"For over 20 years, I have observed Richard operate on boards, in M&A transactions, and in money raises, invariably with intellectual property assets involved. Richard's integrity, communication skills, intelligence and breadth of knowledge have universally proven a potent combination to secure his employer's or client's objectives. With his appointment, I see a wonderful match of person, role and organization," said <span class="xn-person">Deborah Weinstein</span>, founding partner of LaBarge Weinstein.</p>
