Before PTC, she was VP Strategic Alliances at OpenOrders, where she helped sell the company to IBM’s WebSphere Commerce Suite software group.

Mary started her career as a Member of the Technical Staff at the MITRE Corporation contributing to advanced command, control, communications and intelligence systems.
