Wendy Petty

Senior Vice President Field Sales And Services, erwin, Inc.

For my first job out of college, I was brought on by an Irish software company coming to the U.S., hired by a team of two people -- a man and a woman heading the company. This woman basically taught me everything I know. We got along great personality-wise, and if it wasn't for that experience and her, I wouldn't be where I am today.
