Andrew Beale

 CEO IP Wales

I am committed to assisting Boards of Directors to better understand and protect their businesses from the increasing threat of IP cybercrime, and give an understanding of IP Cybersecurity as a strategic risk management issue. I am seeking an exciting and rewarding new career direction, with a small portfolio of Non-Executive Directorships. I am forward thinking, inspirational, proactive and skilled at empowering businesses to better equip themselves for the future through improved intellectual assets management. I have been nationally recognised for “services to intellectual property and business” with the award of an OBE under the Queen’s Birthday Honours List 2009. I have been responsible for initiating and delivering £4m award winning business support programmes for small and medium sized businesses (SMEs). I am ambitious and well respected both regionally and internationally, as evidenced by a two-year secondment working for the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) in Geneva.
