Digital transformation vendor Software AG has promoted Anneliese Schulz, its vice-president of Asia operations, to the post of regional president for Software AG Asia Pacific and Japan.

A statement from the company said Schulz would be the youngest regional president in its history, and would succeed Mike Saxton who had been appointed as global head of Alliances and Channel.

Schulz, who joined Software AG in 2011, has held senior leadership roles across Europe and APJ, including serving as the VP Partner Sales and VP Alliances & Channels in APJ and VP Business Development for Mobile Solutions and director of Support Services in Europe.

Over 30% growth has been achieved each year since her appointment as Software AG Asia’s vice-president. Prior to Software AG, Schulz was involved in sales and marketing in large information technology companies such as SAP, Siemens and Original 1.

“I am delighted to announce the appointment of Anneliese as the new regional president for Asia Pacific & Japan," said Sanjay Brahmawar, chief executive, Software AG.

"Anneliese has demonstrated consistent performance in each of her designated roles within Software AG for the last eight years, and we are confident that her expertise in leading teams and managing business operations throughout the region will help strengthen the company’s market leadership in IoT, API management, and the digital business platform space across APJ.”

Schulz, who will be based in Singapore, will report to John Schweitzer, Software AG’s chief customer officer. Marco Warrens, president, Software AG Japan, and Stuart Rees, vice-president for Software AG ANZ will report to Schulz.

“Given the accelerated momentum of Industry 4.0 and digitalisation across the region, Software AG is committed to further strengthening its market strategy to ensure the sustainability and future-readiness of APJ enterprises in 2019," said Schulz.

"My key thrust is to drive the alignment of IT and business requirements, while streamlining the implementation of services such as IoT through better customer engagement across the region.”
