    It is with deep sadness that we mark the passing of our dear friend and colleague, Rhonda O’Keefe. Generous with her time, kind, caring, an expert in her field, Rhonda was held in high regard by her colleagues as well as all those she worked with across the NGen network.

    As NGen’s lead on Intellectual Property and contracting, Rhonda took pride in supporting some of Canada’s best and brightest innovators. With a wealth of practical experience, Rhonda played a valuable role in helping NGen’s project partners and other NGen members navigate the intricacies of developing, protecting, and commercializing their critical IP assets.

    Rhonda approached every day with openness, optimism, and dedication that our team at NGen aspires to emulate. Her passing is a tremendous loss for NGen and Canada’s advanced manufacturing ecosystem – we will miss her greatly.

    Rhonda’s friends have arranged plans for a park bench, maple tree, and memorial plaque in Halton Hills. Anyone who wishes to make a financial contribution can do so here: https://lnkd.in/dAjN84Yw
