John Wookey will rejoin SAP as the new President of Intelligent Spend and Business Network, the company has announced.

Wookey is tasked with ensuring that SAP continues to be a leader in the Intelligent Spend Management and Business Network markets while also leveraging the broader SAP portfolio to allow customers to benefit from a suite of integrated solutions.

Previously at SAP from 2008 to 2011, Wookey was responsible for the development and support of line-of-business cloud applications. Wookey recently held the position of executive vice president of the industry applications and platform technology teams at Salesforce. Prior to that, he also held senior leadership roles at Oracle.

“John is a recognized development expert with a proven track record of leading ERP, CRM and industry-specific application and platform technology teams,” said Thomas Saueressig, member of the Executive Board of SAP for SAP Product Engineering. 

“Integration is top priority for our customers. John’s experience guiding companies through all development phases, including business needs analysis, design, development and deployment, will help us deliver on this promise to companies that rely on SAP to run their businesses. I look forward to welcoming John back to SAP and working with him to help our customers become intelligent enterprises.”

Wookey has an MS in engineering sciences from the University of California, Berkeley. He will report to Saueressig and be based in Silicon Valley.

Having previously led Intelligent Spend Management, Michael Weingartner will succeed Gunther Rothermel as President, SAP Cloud Platform, with Rothermel becoming head of SAP S/4HANA Sustainability.
