Gerhard Fasol

David Saltzman
We worked together  •  Principal, Squire Patton Boggs (US) LLP. Tufts grad, Emory Law grad
Richard, who has held high-ranking positions at research institutions affiliated with Stanford University, has always impressed me with his ... good judgment. He displays wisdom and practicality to complement his vast knowledge and experience. He has been asked to, and has, served on several Boards of Directors, further demonstrating his desirability and his experience in managing businesses. In addition, his work with Stanford has given him insight into how academic institutions (which often develop or license IP) work, set priorities and view certain business issues, which is often different than how done by for-profit businesses. Richard is a true asset to any team he is on.
