Principal Marketing Strategist
Hi, I’m + John Balla. I’m a digital content strategist here at SAS, and co-founder and former Editor of this blog. I like to find and share content and experiences that open doors, answer questions and maybe even challenge assumptions so better questions can be asked.
Outside of work I stay busy with my wife and I keeping up with my 2 awesome teenagers, volunteering for the Boy Scouts, keeping my garden green, striving for green living, expressing myself with puns, and making my own café con leche every morning. I’ve lived and worked on 3 contents and can communicate fluently in Spanish, Portuguese, Hungarian and passable English.
Prior to SAS, my experience in marketing ranges from Fortune 100 companies to co-founding two start ups. I studied economics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and got an MBA from Georgetown.
