SAP ANZ partner boss exits company

11 Jan 2016

Greg Miller, SAP ANZ’s partner head is exiting the company, to pursue 'more expansive leadership opportunities’.

Miller joined SAP in late 2012 as the company’s chief operating officer.

In May 2014 he took on the added responsibility of vice president and general manager of global partner relations.

SAP says Miller will leave the company on January 31 and until then, will be working with the wider global partner operations (GPO) and senior executive team to ensure a smooth transition.

“Greg has led the establishment of a GPO team poised to help our partners scale with SAP in 2016, overseeing the most successful GPO year in recent history,” a spokesperson for SAP says.

SAP says Miller also established a general business team ready to scale in 2016 for the increasingly important SME market.

Last year, Miller told ChannelLife his single biggest objective was to ‘dramatically’ grow the SME space across Australia and New Zealand, with the company – traditionally enterprise focused – now having a portfolio of solutions for the ‘lower end’ of the SME market.

“Greg will hand over his responsibilities to SAP ANZ chief operating officer Jim Fisher on an interim basis until we name a successor,” SAP says.

Perry Manross, SAP ANZ head of corporate affairs, will handle a number of programs headed by Miller in the region, until a new sponsor for CSR initiatives is appointed.
