Hitachi Data Systems is ranked No. 86 on Fortune Magazines 100 Best Companies to Work For list and eighth on its list of top paying companies.
Its also No. 16 on Chief Executive Magazines 40 Best Companies for Leaders.
It has been named one of the top 10 places to work in the San Francisco Bay Area for the past three years and its among the Best Companies to Work For in France and Poland.
And behind Hitachi Data Systems, is CEO and former Aggie, Jack Domme 86 87.
These awards are not something we tried to achieve, but its great to have achieved them, Domme says. It is phenomenal recognition that our team is doing the right things.
While business and revenue results are measured quarterly, he says that the results from leadership steps and strategy pay off over a few years, which their rise in rankings showed. But with offices in 170 countries, Domme says he is just one piece of the leadership of HDS and works with a great executive team around the world.
Everyone brings a piece to the success, Domme says.
Domme, who received his bachelors in accounting and business computer systems before receiving his masters in business administration, says his current position is something he didnt even dream of when he left New Mexico State University. He says the connections he made with fellow students, the practical knowledge gained from professors, and the work experience in the Physical Science Laboratory all helped him interact in the workplace.
Despite his business success, it is not what is most important to him.
I look at work as part of life, not the entire life, Domme says.
To him, the most important thing is his family. He and his wife Karen 86 have four daughters. Together they enjoy mountain biking, snowboarding and water sports.
Im doing what I want to do, Domme says. Ive been blessed.
