Kevin M. Kercher Receives the Prestigious AUTM Outstanding Volunteer Service AwardMarch 14, 2022

MVS is thrilled to announce that Kevin M. Kercher received the AUTM Outstanding Service Award for his work on the AUTM Member Development Committee and Industry Task Force. He received the award during the AUTM Annual Meeting in New Orleans.

Kevin was chair of a subcommittee of the Membership Development Committee (MDC) that focused on bringing corporations and investment organizations into AUTM. This provided potential licensees and investors access to technology transfer offices (TTOs) at universities and research organizations.  This operates to improve the ability of TTOs to successfully bring developed technology to consumers through either licensing or investment by corporations or investors, which enhances the value of AUTM as an organization to its members.

The mission of the Membership Development Committee is to create awareness of AUTM among the technology transfer profession and work with other AUTM committees to enhance the value of AUTM for its members. The committee’s objectives are to advocate for member interests, recruit and retain AUTM members and honor members who have offered exemplary service. Kevin is the current chair of Membership Development Committee and he previously received this award in 2017.

“We congratulate Kevin on receiving this award for his service to AUTM” said Heidi S. Nebel, MVS Managing Partner and Chair of the Biotechnology and Chemical Practice Group. “His hard work with the AUTM on bringing corporations and investment organizations into AUTM plays a key role in the growth and expansion of this organization.”
