"Neil is a seasoned professional with 23 years of experience in finance, operations and business development," said C. Richard Harrison, president and chief executive officer of PTC. "Given his skills in developing and implementing proven finance capabilities and systems, and his expertise in improving shareholder value by driving operational efficiencies, he will be a valuable addition to the PTC management team."
During Moses' three-year tenure at Axcelis Technologies, he established the infrastructure of the finance department and investor relations program for the newly public company, and significantly reduced the company's breakeven revenue level through strategic restructuring initiatives. These actions helped protect shareholder value during the economic downturn in the semiconductor industry. Prior to joining Axcelis, Moses held executive finance positions in the retail industry, serving as chief financial officer for Bradlees, Inc. from 1995 to 2000 and as senior vice president of finance and treasurer at Ames Department Stores, Inc. from 1990 to 1995.
"I am excited to join PTC's management team," said Moses. "During the last several years, PTC has made significant investments to transform its business. I look forward to helping PTC capitalize on these investments and to help position PTC for growth as the overall IT spending environment improves."
Moses earned a bachelor's degree from Bowdoin College in Maine. In addition, he holds a master's degree in business administration from the Amos Tuck School of Business Administration at Dartmouth College.
C. Richard Harrison concluded, "I would like to thank Tom Beaudoin, our senior vice president of finance who has made an outstanding contribution to the company as acting chief financial officer for the past six months."
