PARTEQ searches for next CEO
PARTEQ Innovations, the technology commercialization arm of Queen’s University, is looking for its next president and chief executive officer. Applications for the position are currently being accepted, with consideration of candidates to begin in September.
“PARTEQ has a solid track record of transforming the discoveries of Queen’s researchers into marketable technologies,” says Steven Liss, Vice-Principal (Research) and Chair of PARTEQ’s board of directors. “We are looking for an individual who has experience building technology-based companies, is well connected in the investment community, and has the ability to lead PARTEQ’s team and drive its future success.”
Accountable to PARTEQ’s board of directors, the next president and CEO will be responsible for developing and implementing a strategic plan for the organization’s future. He or she will work to grow the organization’s track record of working with university researchers to advance patentable technologies.
PARTEQ Innovations was founded by Queen’s in 1987 to commercialize intellectual property arising from university-generated research. A not-for-profit organization, PARTEQ provides institutional researchers with the business, intellectual property and financial expertise that are needed to advance their discoveries to the market, while returning the proceeds from those activities to researchers and their institutions.
