SAP NEWSBYTE — Jan. 8, 2018 — SAP Canada, a subsidiary of SAP SE (NYSE: SAP), today announced the appointment of Andy Canham as managing director. Canham was most recently the chief operating officer for SAP Canada and brings more than two decades of executive leadership experience to the role.

We’re helping many of Canada’s leading companies, government agencies and academic institutions innovate and thrive in this digital era, and the best is yet to come.”
Prior to SAP, Canham held a variety of executive leadership roles, including COO of Vital Insights and senior vice president of sales for Oracle’s Systems division in North America, where he guided the company’s commercial hardware sales integration with Sun Microsystems and led the division for the next two years. He is also the cofounder of Eclipsys Solutions.
“Andy quickly made his mark on the Canadian business,” said DJ Paoni, president of North America Sales, SAP. “He has a proven history of guiding high-performing teams, and I’m confident he will build upon the strong team and foundation we have in the region.”
