NEEDHAM, Mass. ― June 27, 2013 ― PTC (Nasdaq: PMTC) today announced that its president and CEO Jim Heppelmann has been named a leader among corporate executives advocating for an increased focus on science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) in the U.S. education system and elsewhere. The honor comes from STEMconnector, who profiled 100 U.S. CEOs who have been actively advancing STEM education throughout their careers, industries, and companies. The publication was presented at the US News STEM Solutions Summit in Austin, TX.
The selection process included researching over 300 CEOs to collect material in three aspects: 1) the CEO’s background and career; 2) the company’s STEM position within the industry; and 3) the company’s specific items and lines of action around STEM.
“This is great recognition for Mr. Heppelmann and PTC’s work around STEM awareness and education,” said Linda Noonan, executive director, Massachusetts Business Alliance for Education (MBAE). “PTC’s Engineer of the Future program as well as its support for the work we do at MBAE to bring about improvements in all schools across the state are a great and appropriate way to ensure more students are prepared for STEM-based careers.”
