“On behalf of the entire team, I look forward to building on our successes and continuing our mission of working collaboratively with each other and with SAP to advance and apply technology for the greatest gain of the worldwide SAP customer community,” said van der Horst.

Ending his two-year term as chairman, Mike Stoko, who continues as a member of the core team, adds, "I am confident that the newly elected leadership team will continue to identify areas where SUGEN can have a strategic impact and drive the market towards innovation and success.”
