Since becoming CEO in January 2012, Ginni has led IBM through the most significant transformation in its history, reinventing the company to lead in the new era of AI, blockchain, cybersecurity and quantum technologies, all delivered on IBM’s enterprise-strength cloud platform. Today, IBM is the world leader in AI and cloud computing for business, underpinned with trust and security.

Throughout IBM’s reinvention, Ginni has worked to ensure that new technologies are developed and deployed in a way that is ethical and enduring. IBM was the first, for example, to publish long-held principles of trust for AI, data responsibility and data transparency.

IBM’s commitment to diversity and inclusion also has advanced under Ginni’s leadership. This includes extending parental leave and making it easier for women to return to the workforce through a “returnships” program with hands-on work experience in emerging technologies. This pioneering work was recognized in 2018 by the prestigious Catalyst Award for advancing diversity and women’s initiatives. IBM is the only tech company to have earned this recognition in the last 20 years and the only company ever to be honored four times.

IBM under Ginni’s leadership also has led the way on ensuring society is prepared for this new era of data. This includes equipping workers for “new collar” job roles in emerging technology fields that do not always require a bachelor’s degree. The IBM-created Pathways in Technology (P-TECH) education model is a six-year program that prepares students for career success by combining high-school with a community college degree, mentoring and internships – all within existing local education budgets. Today, there are more than 120 schools worldwide, bringing technology employment opportunities to more than 100,000 students.

Beginning her career with IBM in 1981, Ginni held a series of leadership positions across the company and led the successful integration of PricewaterhouseCoopers Consulting, creating a global team of more than 100,000 business consultants and services experts.

Jim Goodnight

As the CEO of SAS, the world’s leading business analytics software vendor, Jim Goodnight has led the company since its inception in 1976, overseeing an unbroken chain of revenue growth and profitability that is unprecedented in the industry. Under his leadership, SAS has become renowned for its innovation and corporate culture. His commitment to work-life balance has made SAS a fixture on best workplaces lists worldwide, including No. 1 on the Fortune list for the US and No. 1 on the Great Place to Work Institute’s multinational ranking.

SAS® software was originally created by Goodnight and North Carolina State University colleagues to analyze agricultural research data. Four decades later, a solid reputation for innovation has secured SAS among the world’s largest software companies. Goodnight continues this commitment to breakthrough technology by reinvesting about a quarter of total revenue each year in research and development, nearly double the percentage of other large software companies.

The company’s strategy to provide an environment where employees can reach peak performance has been showcased in Harvard Business Review. Goodnight co-authored “Managing for Creativity” with author Dr. Richard Florida, asserting that companies prosper when they make the best use of their creative capital. "Innovation is the key to success in this business, and creativity fuels innovation," he said. "Creativity is especially important to SAS because software is a product of the mind. Ninety-five percent of my assets drive out the gate every evening. It's my job to maintain a work environment that keeps those people coming back every morning."

Born on Jan. 6, 1943, in Salisbury, NC, Goodnight has strong and dedicated ties to his home state. He earned his bachelor’s degree in applied mathematics and his master’s in statistics from North Carolina State University (NCSU). He also earned his doctorate in statistics at NCSU, where he was a faculty member from 1972 – 1976. His passion for learning led him to endow several NCSU professorships and make education the focus of SAS' philanthropy. In 1997 he co-founded Cary Academy, an independent college preparatory day school for students in grades six through 12, with the goal of creating a model school for integrating technology into all facets of education.

Shortly before Cary Academy opened, Goodnight launched SAS inSchool® (now called SAS® Curriculum Pathways®), which develops educational software that helps schools meet the challenges of the new millennium. The free software contains the framework for a new generation of teaching courseware that will further extend the use of technology as a learning tool. Year after year, SAS Curriculum Pathways earns awards for educational technologies and, more importantly, the support of students, teachers and parents.

Harvard Business School named Goodnight a Great American Business Leader for his role in making SAS a business that changed the way Americans lived, worked and interacted over the last several decades. He was also named one of America’s 25 Most Fascinating Entrepreneurs by Inc. magazine. Goodnight is an active participant in the Business Roundtable and the Business Council, where CEOs address global issues and business concerns.

    JIM GOODNIGHT

    As the CEO of SAS, the world’s leading business analytics software vendor, Jim Goodnight has led the company since its inception in 1976, overseeing an unbroken chain of revenue growth and profitability that is unprecedented in the industry. Under his leadership, SAS has become renowned for its innovation and corporate culture. His commitment to work-life balance has made SAS a fixture on best workplaces lists worldwide, including No. 1 on the Fortune list for the US and No. 1 on the Great Place to Work Institute’s multinational ranking.

    SAS® software was originally created by Goodnight and North Carolina State University colleagues to analyze agricultural research data. Four decades later, a solid reputation for innovation has secured SAS among the world’s largest software companies. Goodnight continues this commitment to breakthrough technology by reinvesting about a quarter of total revenue each year in research and development, nearly double the percentage of other large software companies.

    The company’s strategy to provide an environment where employees can reach peak performance has been showcased in Harvard Business Review. Goodnight co-authored “Managing for Creativity” with author Dr. Richard Florida, asserting that companies prosper when they make the best use of their creative capital. "Innovation is the key to success in this business, and creativity fuels innovation," he said. "Creativity is especially important to SAS because software is a product of the mind. Ninety-five percent of my assets drive out the gate every evening. It's my job to maintain a work environment that keeps those people coming back every morning."

    Born on Jan. 6, 1943, in Salisbury, NC, Goodnight has strong and dedicated ties to his home state. He earned his bachelor’s degree in applied mathematics and his master’s in statistics from North Carolina State University (NCSU). He also earned his doctorate in statistics at NCSU, where he was a faculty member from 1972 – 1976. His passion for learning led him to endow several NCSU professorships and make education the focus of SAS' philanthropy. In 1997 he co-founded Cary Academy, an independent college preparatory day school for students in grades six through 12, with the goal of creating a model school for integrating technology into all facets of education.

    Shortly before Cary Academy opened, Goodnight launched SAS inSchool® (now called SAS® Curriculum Pathways®), which develops educational software that helps schools meet the challenges of the new millennium. The free software contains the framework for a new generation of teaching courseware that will further extend the use of technology as a learning tool. Year after year, SAS Curriculum Pathways earns awards for educational technologies and, more importantly, the support of students, teachers and parents.

    Harvard Business School named Goodnight a Great American Business Leader for his role in making SAS a business that changed the way Americans lived, worked and interacted over the last several decades. He was also named one of America’s 25 Most Fascinating Entrepreneurs by Inc. magazine. Goodnight is an active participant in the Business Roundtable and the Business Council, where CEOs address global issues and business concerns.
