SAP is celebrating July with an executive shakeup. As of today, the SAP Executive Board has appointed the following new members:
Erwin Gunst: Gunst, formerly president of SAP’s EMEA division, is now COO as well as an Executive Board Member.
Bill McDermott: McDermott, formerly the president of SAP Americas, is now in charge of Global Field Operations.
John Schwarz: Schwarz, the CEO of Business Objects, is now on the Executive Board as well.
Jim Hagemann Snabe: Snabe heads up SAP’s new Business Solutions and Technology organization, which is in charge of the SAP Business Suite and SAP NetWeaver.
In addition to these Executive Board appointments, SAP has imported new managerial blood by appointing Jose Duarte as head of EMEA, replacing Gunst, and making Rodolpho Cardenuto president of SAP Latin America, replacing McDermott (who used to head up the Americas and APAC for SAP).
