"After more than 20 years with SAP, I have decided that it is time for me to begin the next phase of my career, closer to my family," said Co-CEO Jim Hagemann Snabe. "What the entire SAP team has achieved since 2010 is remarkable, and the momentum we have built is now driving the transformation of the industry. I would be honored to continue my commitment to SAP in serving as a member of the Supervisory Board, building on the partnership and friendship with Bill McDermott and the entire Global Managing Board, to further accelerate SAP's success."

"I am incredibly proud of what Jim and Bill have achieved together since they took the lead as co-CEOs in February 2010. They have exceeded my expectations in expanding SAP's market leadership and profitable growth through a relentless focus on innovation and customer success. With two of the best leaders in the industry, now I can look to bring Jim's experience and energy to the SAP Supervisory Board, and be sure SAP is firmly in the hands of a visionary leader with Bill as sole CEO," said Hasso Plattner, Co-Founder of SAP and Chairman of the SAP Supervisory Board.

"As co-CEOs, we have a proven track record of making bold decisions that set SAP and our customers up for value and growth," said Co-CEO Bill McDermott. "The proposed set-up, with Jim joining the Supervisory Board, builds on the strength of our partnership and personal friendship, and will make SAP an even stronger company as we accelerate the transformation of the industry. Our commitment to SAP, our global customers and our innovation agenda is stronger than ever."
