SAP has appointed Colin Brookes President and Managing Director of SAP Australia and New Zealand (ANZ) and Stephen Moore as Executive Director for SAP ANZ.

Brookes, who will be responsible for all customer operations across the region, joined SAP ANZ from SAP United Kingdom and Ireland as Chief Operating Officer in January this year. He has more than 20 years’ international experience in the information technology sector, including in leadership positions with organisations such as Software AG and CA Technologies.

“In the past six months, Colin Brookes has brought a new level of sophistication to our operations that has translated to better outcomes for and higher satisfaction among our customers in Australia and New Zealand,” said Scott Russell, recently appointed President, SAP Asia Pacific Japan. “Under his leadership, I am confident this trend will accelerate.”

After nine months leading the organisation as interim President and Managing Director, Stephen Moore has taken on the role of Executive Director, SAP ANZ. In this role Moore will be responsible for building on the substantial growth and adoption of SAP’s extensive cloud portfolio and supporting SAP’s wider customer, partner and community ecosystem in ANZ.

Moore joined SAP in 2011 as a delivery executive for SAP Asia Pacific Japan (APJ), progressing to technology sales and delivery roles with SAP ANZ and SAP APJ. He has over 25 years’ experience in the industry, including in executive leadership positions at PeopleSoft, Unisys and CAI Technologies.

“Under Stephen Moore’s leadership, organisations in Australia and New Zealand have adopted our cloud solutions at an unprecedented rate,” Russell added. “We look forward to his continued leadership as we simplify and harmonise the way we deliver on our customers’ increasing demand for our innovation in the cloud.

“More and more organisations are relying on SAP to help them navigate and make the most of digital business. Through these appointments, we are confident we can better serve our customers and strengthen our position as their innovation partner.”
