The Colossal Spider Web of PTC Alumni

Founded in Needham in 1985, Parametric Technology Corporation, or PTC as it is commonly known, is a manufacturer of computer-aided design (CAD) modeling software. The company had their IPO in 1989 and its current market cap is greater than $11B.

Since then, the company’s product catalog has grown to include product lifecycle management (PLM), IoT, and augmented reality through their ThingWorx platform.

With PTC’s long-standing presence in the Boston tech scene, it may come as no surprise that several of its former employees have gone onto executive roles at other prominent companies in the area or have started their own. We’ve created a slideshow showcasing 30+ alumni to share the details on what they are up to now.

Keep in mind, this is not meant to be a definitive list, but rather a sampling of noteworthy alumni who have come out of the company. For this slideshow, we used the specific criteria:

  • Located in the Boston area
  • 2+ years at PTC
  • In an executive leadership role 
  • We limited some of the people who joined via acquisition from companies like Mathcad and Computervision, unless they stayed with the company several years post acquisition
