SAP announced that the SAP Supervisory Board has extended the contracts of Executive Board Members Julia White, Chief Marketing & Solutions Officer, and Scott Russell, who leads SAP’s Customer Success organization, for three years until 2027.
“We express our gratitude to Julia and Scott for their excellent work, which has significantly propelled the company forward. With their exceptional skills and expertise, we are confident that they will continue to provide the necessary drive for their respective Board areas to manage the opportunities and challenges ahead,” said Hasso Plattner, Chairman of the SAP Supervisory Board.
Furthermore, Sabine Bendiek, Chief People and Operating Officer and Labor Relations Director, informed the Supervisory Board that she will not seek to renew her Executive Board contract.
