During his three years as SAP’s global corporate development chief, Shenkman led the company’s strategic investment efforts and helped the software company acquire Concur, Fieldglass, BusinessObjects, hybris, SuccessFactors, Ariba and Sybase, SAP said Thursday.
“He’s been a key architect of our growth strategy over the last several years and his leadership skills, experience at SAP and deep knowledge of our customers and partners make him uniquely qualified to help lead our region into the future,” said Jen Morgan, president of SAP North America.
