Wubbo de Boer
It is with great sadness that we announce that Wubbo de Boer, until recently Chairman of Novagraaf’s Supervisory Board, has passed away. A well-respected figure in the IP industry, Wubbo was President of EUIPO from 2000 to 2010, and member of Novagraaf's Supervisory Board from 2011 until the beginning of this year.
Thanks to Wubbo’s leadership and industry knowledge, Novagraaf has grown considerably in recent years. We have valued his strategic input and wise advice beyond measure. Wubbo had a brilliant intellectual mind and spirit, unique sense of humour and sincere interest in people. We owe him a lot and we will cherish our memories with warmth and respect.
We would like to extend our sincere condolences to his family, friends and colleagues.
On behalf of all of us at Novagraaf,
Lutgarde Liezenberg, CEOTweet
