Dilipkumar Khandelwal, managing director of SAP Labs India, has quit the firm.
Khandelwal’s resignation was confirmed in a statement issued by a company spokesperson.
Khandelwal took on the role of managing director in August 2014 after holding various positions in SAP Labs India for 18 years. He also served as the global president for SAP HANA enterprise cloud. He was instrumental in setting up the SAP Startup Studio, an accelerator programme to incubate startups.
An advisor at early-stage venture capital firm Stellaris Venture Partners, Khandelwal has also been an angel investor for various startups like Signzy, Moglix and Fablestreet. Earlier this month, he was one of the leading investors in logistics startup Loadshare Networks along with top executives from Ashok Leyland and McKinsey.
Sindhu Gangadharan, who currently serves in the office of the chief technology officer as global vice president and head of integration at SAP Germany, will take over the role in September, the statement added.
Gangadharan has been working at SAP Labs since 2001. She has headed the product management portfolio for IoT, integration and process orchestration, apart from serving in various other positions at the Waldorf-headquartered enterprise software solutions provider.
“Sindhu will bring valuable insight to SAP Labs India having held various leadership roles in product management and integration technologies in her 18 years with SAP. We thank Dilipkumar Khandelwal for his integral role in shaping SAP and wish him all the best as he pursues a new opportunity outside SAP,” the statement said.
