Basis Technologies Appoints SAP Expert as New CRO

Basis Technologies was founded in Melbourne where it launched Transport Express, the first version of the company’s flagship change and release management product. Since 1997, the company has focused on automation engineered specifically for SAP and has helped enterprises worldwide become more agile, innovative, and competitive.

Basis Technologies appointed Duncan Williamson, an SAP veteran, as Chief Revenue Officer (CRO) to drive business growth and manage operations of the global enterprise with offices in Australia, Germany, UK, and the US. Headquartered in London, Basis Technologies offices in Australia support operations in APJ, including Australia, New Zealand, China, Singapore, India, and Japan.

The seasoned SAP expert Williamson has successfully led high-performing teams across various countries and industries within the German ERP software giant. From his most recent role as Managing Director of SAP Malaysia, now, he is expected to lead all aspects of sales, business development, and alliances activity worldwide as the CRO of Basis Technologies.

“Business leaders need to be ahead of the curve, understand the impact of technology on their business models, look ahead for disruption, and future-proof the business at all times,” Williamson explained. He added:

“This is precisely what Basis Technologies’ automation does for companies running SAP. I am delighted to join the team and excited by the opportunity to introduce more organizations around the world to this revolutionary innovation.”
