Global software giant SAP has appointed Damien Bueno as president and managing director for Australia and New Zealand to replace Colin Brookes who has stepped down to take up a new role with SAP globally.

Bueno joined SAP in 2007 and has worked with some of Australia and New Zealand’s largest organisations, across multiple industries, most recently as vice-president for Strategic Industries and Markets SAP ANZ.

Scott Russell, president, SAP Asia Pacific Japan, said, “Australia and New Zealand is a key market unit for the APJ region, having become a $1 billion business and delivering 22% year-over-year cloud business growth.

“As an experienced member of the ANZ senior executive team, Damien Bueno is a proven leader who embodies what it means to be customer-centric and employee-focused. I look forward to Damien supporting our customers’ future successes, as our ANZ business enters its next phase of growth.

“Under Colin Brooke’s leadership, first as chief operating officer and then as president and managing director, SAP ANZ delivered a relentless industry focus across its entire business with a shift to an industry-led Go To Market strategy. We thank Colin for his contributions to the ANZ business.”

“Our customers are asking more and more of us each day, as they deal with the opportunities and disruptions that their respective industries throw at them. As a valued partner to help our customers succeed in today’s digital economy, it has never been a better time to be at SAP,” Bueno said.

With his appointment Bueno joins SAP’s Asia Pacific Japan senior executive team, reporting directly to Russell.
