Columbia-based Merkle is adding jobs at a breakneck pace — 200 this year and hundreds more in the past few years, during a time when many employers have held the line or cut back. Total workforce: 1,500. That's a heck of a change since chief executive David Williams bought the marketing company in 1988 and became employee No. 24. Williams, 48, had no marketing background when he leaped from a stock brokerage into entrepreneurship in his mid-20s. He simply wanted to run his own company, and Merkle was available.

David Williams' Columbia-based marketing company makes heavy use of data to help business clients reach customers and maintain their loyalty. As a racecar driver, the CEO of Merkle Inc. also sifts through data to improve his performance on the track. "It's amazing how the use of data has evolved in motor sports," Williams said. "There is a computer in my car that captures more than 100 elements associated with the vehicle - G-forces and speed and brake pressure. We are capturing all this information in real time from that car, and after a race or qualifying or practice session, we download all that data into a computer and we can analyze foot-by-foot around that racetrack how fast we were going.

The Houston Oilers professional football team was within its rights to dock the pay of starting tackle David Williams for skipping a football game hours after the birth of his son. After all, most leaves for new parents are unpaid. And if the $111,111 price tag of this parental leave seems excessive, it does represent the salary per game for a $2 million starting tackle.But what makes this story interesting is the contrast between the macho-types running the football club who suggested Mr. Williams was a wimp and the equally macho fans who flooded call-in shows with support for a player who dared to put a football game second to his family.

Houston Oiler David Williams missed his team's game last Sunday in New England because he decided to stay with his wife for the birth of their first child -- and for a while afterward. And it cost him a game check worth $125,000.The outrage of his boss, offensive line coach Bob Young, who compared the game with World War II and said Williams' absence for such a sentimental reason was as unacceptable as it would have been during the war, was met with equal outrage by Houston fans and talk-show callers, some of whom offered to contribute money to help Williams make up the lost paycheck.
