“Ipswitch takes a position of responsibility in helping to support the local communities where employees and customers live and work, and I am honored to be part of that culture,” said Steven Rotman. “Ipswitch is filled with people who are passionate about various local causes, and we are delighted to support so many. I’m thrilled that this recognition affords the Wonderfund the opportunity to do more of its great work serving children throughout Massachusetts.”
