After eight successful years with SAS Latin America, Marcio Dobal is now responsible for the SAS Asia Pacific region.
In his new role, Dobal will oversee the company's business operations and growth of its core analytics business. "Asia Pacific continues to offer enormous opportunities for helping businesses analyse their data to make decisions that help them succeed," said Dobal. "My focus is on SAS' presence in Asia Pacific, and ensuring that customers, as well as employees, are able to tap into all the resources SAS offers across the globe."
Before joining SAS, Dobal spent nine years in the Asia Pacific region while working for other global software companies.
Commenting on Dobal's appointment, Carl Farrell, SAS' Executive Vice President and Chief Revenue Officer, said: "While overseeing SAS Latin America, Marcio created strong leadership teams and led significant growth across that region. That, combined with his previous experience within the Asia Pacific 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."
