I will provide executive leadership to reinforce WIPO’s position within the IP community by increasing effective cooperation among Member States, deepening the interaction with IGOs and NGOs, and improving services to bring value to our users.
Marco M. Alemán
Marco has been dedicated to the protection and development of intellectual property for over 30 years. He is a dedicated expert and scholar, who is committed to understanding the changing IP climate, and has extensive experience in multilateral negotiations. Marco has assisted countries in different regions throughout the world in drafting their IP laws and policies, and he is a dedicated WIPO international civil servant helping to solve global and national issues.
“A historic option for Latin Americans to have, for the first time, a Spanish-speaking Director General, originally from Colombia but with half his professional life dedicated to WIPO in Geneva. For GRULAC there is no better option than the candidacy of Marco Matias Alemán.”
Jose Luis Caballero (MEX)
Socio Director en Jalife, Caballero & Asociados
Marco is an excellent person and prominent professional, who has worked for more than two decades in WIPO occupying important responsibilities within the organization and supporting the intellectual property systems around the world. It is a pride for all the professional who work linked to intellectual property in Latin America to have a WIPO Director General candidate like him, who is an example of what can be achieved when working with passion, dedication and commitment.
As an Asian I also strongly believe that Mr. Marco M. Alemán is the best one who can lead an organization like WIPO. He has a very good understanding of how to implement IP systems and strategies in different jurisdictions in the world. Best of luck Mr. Marco.
Marco Aleman deserves to be appointed as WIPO’s Director General, not only for his undisputed qualifications, evidenced by his long career in IP, but also by Marco’s unconditional promotion of efficient IP offices throughout Latin America, with WIPO’s support, that changed the outlook for protection of inventions and innovation in general, at the same time favorably impacting the doing business ranking of Latin American countries.
“His career during the last 20 years at WIPO makes him the ‘only candidate who combines in-depth knowledge about IP issues and also demonstrates long experience in multilateral negotiations at WIPO. Marco has clear expertise in the process of administration of international treaties in different areas and in technical support to countries on different continents seeking to use the intellectual property system efficiently”

He has demonstrated throughout his career to have the diplomacy, gravitas and understanding necessary to balance the needs of all the countries that look at WIPO for direction on this strategic field.
