Bellevue patent licensing and research outfit Intellectual Ventures is shuffling its management a bit, with co-founder Edward Jung passing management duties to a newcomer.
Jung, a former Microsoft chief architect who started Intellectual Ventures with ex Microsoft CTO Nathan Myhrvold, is resuming his role as chief technology officer for IV.
The company hired Adriane Brown as its new president and chief operating officer. Formerly vice president of energy strategy at Honeywell International. Brown was on Fortune magazine’s Women to Watch list in 2006 and named one of the “100 Most Powerful Executives in Corporate America” last year by Black Enterprise.
