As SVP for GTM Strategy and Global Head of Strategic Alliances, I am proud to work with partners around the globe who transform award-winning software into breakthrough solutions. All of us at PTC recognize that our partners are on the front lines of our customers’ digital transformation initiatives. It’s also important to take time to review, assess, and celebrate excellence in all its forms – that’s why we created the PTC Partner Network Awards.

Before I list the award winners, I’d like to set some context.

First, we acknowledge this has been no ordinary year. Our partners accomplished incredible feats amid a raging pandemic, global travel restrictions, fluctuating budgets, and sometimes striking shifts in client priorities. As the saying goes – when the going gets tough, the tough get going. I extend my sincere gratitude and appreciation for all our partners accomplished this past year.

The PTC Partner Network Awards program is comprised of three award categories:

  • Qualitative
  • Quantitative
  • Partners of the Year

Qualitative awards are based on partner submissions that were judged by the independent analyst firm ARC Advisory Group. Quantitative awards are based on data recorded in PTC partner financial and operation systems for the year ending March 31. Our Partner of the Year awards (Solution Provider, System Integrator, Technology Provider, and overall PTC Partner of the Year) represent the highest echelon of our awards program and are based on a mix of qualitative and quantitative criteria.

It is an honor to be named a Finalist as well as a Winner, and this was echoed by our judges, who frankly were amazed by both the quality and quantity of submissions. This is only the beginning of our year-long celebration of our partners’ many successes. Over the coming months, we hope you’ll get to know more of our friends and colleagues through blogs, case studies, webinars and revamped PTC partner pages.

And now…drumroll please! On behalf of everyone at PTC, I extend my sincere congratulations to each of our winners and finalists.
