James Goodnight is the CEO of the software company SAS, with a net worth of $6.9 billion. James Goodnight accumulated his net worth through his interest in computer technology and with his constant development of new products for the company SAS, as well as owner of the Prestonwood Country Club.

James "Jim" Goodnight (b. January 6, 1943) is the CEO of SAS Institute and is generally recognized as the wealthiest man in the state of North Carolina and one of the wealthiest in the world.

A few years later, while working on his master's, his curiosity was piqued over the prospect of man being sent to the moon. His programming skills helped him land a position with a company building electronic equipment for the ground stations that would communicate with the Apollo space capsules. Goodnight met his wife, Ann, while he was a senior at NC State and she was attending Meredith College.
Goodnight also owns Prestonwood Country Club, located in Cary, North Carolina. Prestonwood is known for its restaur
