Jennifer Morgan is Co-Chief Executive Officer of SAP, the world’s largest provider of enterprise application software with nearly 100,000 employees and 437,000+ customers across the globe.
Prior to being named Co-CEO of SAP, Jennifer served as President of SAP’s Cloud Business Group, where she had end-to-end responsibility for the company’s cloud lines of business, including SAP’s Intelligent Spend Group (SAP Ariba, SAP Concur and SAP Fieldglass), SAP SuccessFactors, SAP Customer Experience, and Qualtrics. Jennifer has spearheaded the company’s rapid and aggressive shift to the cloud. In 2018, SAP cloud revenue surpassed license revenue for the first time in the company’s nearly five-decade history.
In 2017, Jennifer became the first American woman ever appointed to the SAP Executive Board when she was named President of the Americas and Asia. In this role, she was responsible for SAP’s revenue, strategy, and customer success in North America, Latin America, and Asia Pacific Japan, regions encompassing more than 43,000 employees and nearly 230,000 customers. As president of SAP North America from 2014 to 2017, Jennifer led the region’s shift to the cloud, sharpened the focus on growth and innovation for more than 155,000 customers, and helped build a culture that earned SAP North America its first ever listing on Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work For. Jennifer was also instrumental in the region securing its place as a leader in the areas of diversity and inclusion through programs like Autism at Work, and particularly the company’s receipt of EDGE certification – a recognition awarded by the World Economic Forum recognizing the company’s commitment to gender equality and equal pay in the workplace.
Since joining SAP in 2004, Jennifer has held numerous leadership roles for SAP within the company. As head of SAP North America’s public sector organization, and later as president of its Regulated Industries business unit, she was a recognized thought-leader on government and public sector technology innovation, represented SAP to the U.S. Government, and testified before the United States Congress on technology and acquisition issues.
Jennifer is the first female CEO in SAP history and the first woman to serve as CEO of a company on the German DAX 30 index. She has been named multiple times as one of Fortune Magazine’s Most Powerful Women in Business and by Forbes as one of the Most Powerful Women in the World and Technology. She is a proud graduate of the James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia. Jennifer serves on the Board of Directors of the Bank of New York Mellon, a global leader in investment management and investment services, as well as on the non-profit board of the National Academy Foundation (NAF) and the Board of Advisors at James Madison University’s College of Business.
