SAS Names Marcio Dobal as Regional Vice President for Asia Pacific
Former head of Latin America now leads SAS Asia Pacific
Building on eight successful years with SAS Latin America, Marcio Dobal is now responsible for the SAS Asia Pacific region, where he oversees the company’s business operations and growth of its core analytic business. Prior to joining SAS, Marcio spent nine years in Asia Pacific where he worked for other global software companies.
“Marcio has held various global management positions that make him an ideal choice for heading up Asia Pacific,” said Carl Farrell, Executive Vice President and Chief Revenue Officer at SAS. “While overseeing SAS Latin America, he created strong leadership teams and led significant growth across that region. That combined with his previous experience within the AP region and his knowledge of SAS are assets that he is uniquely able to bring to the strong and capable management team already in place today.”
Earlier this month SAS posted its 40th consecutive year of revenue growth, with SAS Asia Pacific contributing slightly more than 13 percent of revenue from that region. “Asia Pacific continues to offer enormous opportunities for helping businesses analyze their data to make decisions that help them succeed,” said Dobal. “My focus is on SAS’ presence in AP, and ensuring that customers, as well as employees, are able to tap into all the resources SAS offers across the globe. I am very excited to be a part of this team and uncovering new opportunities for businesses based in Asia Pacific.”
