In this role Moore will be responsible for building on the substantial growth and adoption of SAP’s extensive cloud portfolio and supporting SAP’s wider customer, partner and community ecosystem in ANZ.

“Under Stephen Moore’s leadership, organisations in Australia and New Zealand have adopted our cloud solutions at an unprecedented rate,” Russell added. “We look forward to his continued leadership as we simplify and harmonise the way we deliver on our customers’ increasing demand for our innovation in the cloud.

“More and more organisations are relying on SAP to help them navigate and make the most of digital business. Through these appointments, we are confident we can better serve our customers and strengthen our position as their innovation partner.”
