Bill McDermot has left SAP to take-up CEO role at ServiceNow vacated by John Donahoe who joins Nike.
ServiceNow have announced the appointment of former SAP head Bill McDermott.
McDermott's position has been confirmed just two weeks after he left SAP, while ServiceNow's John Donahue has taken up a position at global sportswear giant Nike.
McDermott, who joined SAP in 2004, will complete his move by the end of this year, following a handover period where he will operate in an advisory role. Donahoe meanwhile, will maintain his place on ServiceNow's board until 2020.
“ServiceNow’s board is thrilled to have Bill McDermott join the company,” said Jeff Miller, Lead Independent Director of the ServiceNow Board of Directors. “His global experience and proven track record will provide for a smooth transition and continued strong leadership. Bill will further enhance ServiceNow’s momentum and reputation as a digital workflows leader committed to customer success, and as a preferred strategic partner enabling enterprise digital transformation.”
Miller added: “John Donahoe has been an exceptional leader for ServiceNow, championing a purpose‑driven culture, strong customer focus and product innovation, and achieving outstanding shareholder value. The board extends its deep appreciation and thanks on behalf of our employees, partners and customers. We wish him much success as he embarks on his next role.”
