Catherine W. Jelinek Earns Certified Licensing ProfessionalTM Designation

Catherine W. Jelinek, CEO/General Manager at CREATECH S.A., has earned the Certified Licensing ProfessionalTM (CLP) credential. She joins a growing group of IP professionals who have demonstrated they are dedicated to higher standards of practice in the licensing industry.

The CLPTM designation distinguishes licensing professionals who have demonstrated their experience and proficiency in licensing and the commercialization of intellectual property. It is built on internationally applicable standards of practice, knowledge, and ethics to differentiate licensing professionals who have taken the steps necessary to become certified.

After extensive industry research, the CLPTM certification was created as an initiative of the Licensing Executives Society (USA and Canada), Inc. to recognize licensing professionals who are committed to professional development and the attainment of the skills and knowledge necessary to perform their jobs at the highest level of quality. LES has established itself as the leader in the licensing field and is steadfastly dedicated to the professional development of its constituents (members and otherwise).

The CLPTM credential is also an avenue for employers to recognize and promote licensing professionals.

To become a CLPTM certificant, Catherine W. Jelinek met requirements in three areas:

  • Education – Bachelor degree or higher from an accredited university
  • Experience – At least five years of professional-level experience involving the development, use, transfer, marketing, and/or management of IP within the past eight years.
  • Demonstrated proficiency is the licensing and commercialization of intellectual property.
