Roy Kamphausen to Succeed Richard Ellings as President of NBR
Richard Ellings will be stepping down as president of NBR on July 20, 2019, after more than 30 years of dedicated service. Dr. Ellings will remain involved in the institution as a distinguished fellow and a member of the Board of Directors. Roy Kamphausen, current senior vice president for research, will take over as president.
“NBR’s legacy, mission, extraordinary team, and commitment to the highest scholarship in support of our national interests have been important to me since I’ve been at NBR,” said Kamphausen. “This new opportunity to serve as president finds me both deeply humbled and immensely grateful. We have an incredible foundation from which to write the next chapter of NBR’s history, and I am excited to lead our amazing team as we forge ahead.”
THE COMMISSION ON THE THEFT OF AMERICAN INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY
The IP Commission is supported by unrestricted funding provided by NBR and its Slade Gorton International Policy Center.
“IP theft is the most important of the economic issues we have with China for the long-term health and competitiveness of the American economy. We must not settle for weak or vague IP protection commitments from China in return for concessions in other areas or because of the pressure of deadlines.”
