Pintchman takes a VP title to lead internal and external PR for the Cambridge, Mass.-based company, which was founded by global chess master Alan Trefler. She directed WS' Boston tech practice and spent more than 17 years with the firm, as well as another decade at predecessor The Weber Group.

Pegasystems acquired Antenna Software last year for $27.M and Chordiant for $161.5M in 2010.
