SAS Celebrates Success

Jan 21, 2011

SAS has a lot to celebrate this week. The software company continues to hire during the tough economy. 

SAS founders and employees enjoyed champagne and sparkling cider at their Cary headquarters yesterday. For the second year in a row – they’ve been ranked number one on Fortune Magazine’s “Best Companies to Work For” list. SAS is also celebrating record revenue for 2010 – 2.43 billion dollars, up 5.2-percent from the year before. John Sall is co-founder and Executive Vice President of SAS.

"We help people figure out the numbers and process their data and give them enough information to make the best decisions. Whether the economy is booming or not, that’s something important."

Sall says SAS was able to grow its staff by almost two-and-a half percent last year.
