Carolina Connections on Business RadioX Spotlights SAS, Silicon Valley Bank, nCino and Workplace Options

Henderson, Stoecker, Barbee and King Talk Business Growth Throughout North Carolina

WAKE FORREST, NC--(Marketwired - November 19, 2014) - On October 29th, 2014, hosts Ann Revell-Pechar and Cal Hackeman welcomed Paula Henderson of SAS, Chris Stoecker of Silicon Valley Bank, Martin Barbee with nCino and Alan King of Workplace Options into the Metro Raleigh Business RadioX studios as guests on Carolina Connections. These thought leaders discussed how they facilitate growth within their companies and for their clients.

SAS business analytics software and services transform data into insights that give a clear vision for businesses. Strengths and weaknesses are identified, while also revealing future opportunities. Their solutions are used at more than 70,000 sites in 138 countries, including 93 of the top 100 companies on the 2014 Fortune Global 500® list. As Vice President of the State & Local Government at SAS, Paula Henderson is responsible for leading an $80 million business that brings the power of SAS analytics to government entities across the U.S. Under her leadership, the business unit has achieved double digit growth each year for the past five years.

"Our software is in use in every state and local government in the United States," said Henderson. "Our current concentration is on fraud waste and abuse; that's where we assist most of these governments. We've developed solutions that are helping in areas such as tax programs, fraud and Medicaid that have saved a significant amount of money."

Chris Stoecker is Managing Director of Silicon Valley Bank in the RTP area, and he joined the broadcast to discuss how his bank helps impact growth in the region. Silicon Valley Bank's diverse financial services, knowledge, global network, and world class service increase their clients' probability of success. With $33 billion in assets and more than 1,700 employees, they provide commercial, international and private banking through 34 locations worldwide. 

Martin Barbee, Senior Vice President of Strategic Accounts at nCino, discussed the role his company plays in helping banks be more successful. nCino created the cloud-based banking industry and believes the Bank Operating System has the potential to become the de facto standard for how banks are managed and run. They also enable regulators to identify financial problems and address them before they happen. 

Alan King, President and COO of Workplace Options, was featured as well. To achieve maximum workplace effectiveness, Workplace Options believes employees must be empowered, engaged and equipped to excel. Their services and programs are specifically designed to promote employee engagement, productivity, performance, workplace wellness, participation and compliance.
