Supervisory Patent Examiner - basically the immediate manager of a group of patent examiners.

 
Actually its Supervisory Primary Examiner. They are promoted from the pool of Primary Examiners, and once promoted they are no longer members of the POPA bargaining unit and have crossed over to the dark side... they are <gulp> managers.

More actually, both terms are used in the MPEP. S. Patent E. seems to be used more often based on a search of both terms.
 
This is all semantics, though. Both refer to the same type of immediate manager of a group of examiners.
 
Is S. Primary E. more commonly used in day to day interaction at the PTO?

Thanks for defining SPE for me.  How do I go about making sure my resume gets in an SPE's hands and not HR?
 
what do you mean by POPA bargaining unit?  Is this sort analogous to a so called union of primary examiners so to speak?

Everybody just calls them SPE (think one word, like SPEE!), but i just think that 'Primary' rather than 'Patent' is more accurate. Neither is incorrect.
