Michael Kleinemeier and Steve Singh have joined the Global Managing Board of SAP SE, the company announced recently.
Kleinemeier (pictured) was formerly the regional president, Middle and Eastern Europe (MEE) and responsible for all go-to-market activities for SAP’s product portfolio. His new tasks will include leading the worldwide version of SAP Service and Support, as well as helping lead the Global Service and Support board area, along with Executive Board Member Gerhard Oswald and head of Cloud Delivery and CIO Helen Arnold.
Formerly CEO of Concur, Singh will head up SAP’s Business Network Strategy. Singh had served as Concur’s CEO since 1996, and joined SAP during the company’s acquisition of Concur in December 2014.
The move to buy Concur followed the acquisition of both Fieldglass and Ariba, enabling SAP to offer the world’s largest network of digitally connected businesses.
