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.
