ClarkeModet promotes new managing director of Spain

ClarkeModet has promoted Ignacio Gómez-Acebo as managing director of ClarkeModet Spain, the oldest of its companies, founded in 1879

Gómez-Acebo will lead the team of more than 160 professionals currently employed by ClarkeModet in the country with the purpose of accelerating the company's growth and incorporating new services in Intellectual Property management, with a special focus on new technologies.

The responsibilities assumed by Gómez-Acebo were integrated into the Corporate General Management of the group of companies until now. Following the appointment, last May of Luis De Torres as Global CEO, the new management and the Board of Directors have agreed on a new direction for ClarkeModet, based on the growth of the group in new markets in Europe, Asia, Latin America, and the United States.

Luis De Torres, global CEO of ClarkeModet Group, explained that: "To achieve the objectives we have set for the new phase, ClarkeModet Spain will operate with the same structure as the rest of our companies and therefore needs its own General Management. Ignacio Gómez-Acebo, with more than 13 years of experience in ClarkeModet and a comprehensive vision of the business and the innovators and entrepreneurs needs, will drive our growth in this country. Spain is today a key market to become the first global Intellectual Property firm specialized in the European and Latin American markets."

Gómez-Acebo joined ClarkeModet in 2008 and has held various Legal, Technical and Business positions in the firm. Since 2019, he has been its Corporate director of Legal and Technical Services. He has more than 18 years of experience in Intellectual Property Protection and Defence, Technological Intelligence, and Financial valuation of intangible assets.

Ignacio Gómez-Acebo (pictured) is a graduate in Business Administration from Universidad Pontificia Comillas (ICADE) and has an MBA from Columbia Business School. He began his professional career at Telefónica Móviles in the Technological and Competitive Intelligence department of the International Corporation. Before joining ClarkeModet, he was a senior consultant at Roland Berger and manager of the Business Advisory Services division of KPMG Spain. Throughout his career, he has led projects for companies in different sectors, such as Energy, Renewables, Telecommunications, Pharma and FMCG.
