Dear 2020 Luncheon Guests — we are postponing our event to September 21, 2020. Our hearts go out to all of those who have been impacted by the novel COVID-19 virus. Heeding to what Governor Wolf has recommended, we are postponing our March 23rd event to the fall. Jennifer Morgan continues her kindness and has agreed to be our keynote speaker for this new date as well. Please take extra care during this time.
Jennifer Morgan is former co-CEO of SAP. Previously, as the leader of SAP’s Cloud Business Group, Jennifer had end-to-end responsibility for the company’s cloud lines of business, including SAP Ariba, SAP Concur, SAP Fieldglass and SAP SuccessFactors solutions as well as SAP C/4HANA and Experience Management solutions from SAP (Qualtrics). Jennifer was spearheading the company’s rapid and aggressive shift to the cloud as her portfolio included revenue, product development, research, engineering, operations, and sales and marketing across SAP’s cloud businesses. In 2018, SAP cloud revenue surpassed license revenue for the first time in the company’s nearly five-decade history.
Jennifer became the first American woman ever appointed to the SAP Executive Board when she was named President of the Americas and Asia in 2017. 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. Prior to being named to the Executive Board, Jennifer served as President of SAP North America, where she led the region’s rapid 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.
Jennifer has served in several other leadership roles for SAP since joining the company in 2004. 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. Earlier in her career, Jennifer served in various management roles at Siebel Systems and Accenture.
Jennifer has been named 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.
