PTC’s Corporate Communications team is looking for a new leader for its Analyst Relations program. This individual will assume day-to-day responsibility for PTC’s Analyst Relations program, chiefly responsible for facilitating the two-way exchange between PTC and industry analyst firms like Gartner, Forrester, and IDC.
At PTC, the nuts-and-bolts of an Analyst Relations program are very much expected, from regularly scheduled briefings and inquiries to submissions for impactful reports like Magic Quadrants and Waves.But at PTC, our expectations for leading the Analyst Relations program extend far beyond the basics. We first prioritize our approach to this work, and we need someone who naturally embodies the three elements that are paramount to the program: genuine relationships, curiosity, and narrative and content.
This individual needs to be a master at establishing and building genuine relationships – both external with the analyst community and internal with the many PTC executives and teammates that will be supporting analyst-related activities. A steadfast commitment to these relationships must serve as the foundation of this role for this individual to be successful.
Complementing this focus on relationships needs to be a natural curiosity that underscores all of this individual’s work. This curiosity needs to span PTC and its businesses, the markets that the company is addressing, and the priorities of the analyst community. What stories does PTC need to be telling and how do these measure up against what the industry analysts view as important to the market?
Speaking of stories, in order to get the most out of these relationships and this curiosity, this individual needs to be an excellent storyteller. Every day, there will be a need to pick up on or craft a narrative that needs to be shared with the analyst community. These narratives could range from PTC’s Industrial IoT edge strategy to the company’s SaaS-focused future. Not only does this individual need to drive these narratives, they need to be capable of creating the right content to deliver them. Content creation and management is critical in this role – from the tone of an everyday email and the depth of a calendar invite to the technical review of a report or the creation of a slide for a presentation.
If you are someone who prides themselves on these attributes, we would love to hear from you.
