For David Lossignol, the start of his term as 2019 INTA President caps a history of more than 15 years with the Association and kicks off what he describes as a full plate of activities to advance INTA’s mission and to address major challenges facing the intellectual property (IP) community.

Mr. Lossignol, who is currently Head of Trademarks, Domain Names and Copyrights at Novartis Pharma AG in Basel, Switzerland, began his term as INTA’s President and Chair of the Board of Directors and Executive Committee on January 1.
