Congratulations to Sean Dennehey!

Sean Dennehey
Readers who are recovering from copious amounts of holiday engorgement and spending much of their days blankly scrolling through news items on their smartphones may have already read about the exciting news from this year's New Year's Honours list.  The UK Intellectual Property Office's very own Sean Dennehey (Deputy Chief Executive) has been honored with a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE).  Sean first joined the IPO in 1978 as a patent examiner, was appointed as the Director of Patents in 2004 and Deputy Chief Examiner in 2007.  With the Battle of Brexit, March of the UPC and trade agreements on his plate, Sean has a lot on his plate in 2018.

But before he devours all of that, the IPKat team sends their biggest congratulations on the wonderful honour!
