CHICAGO - Wednesday, June 26th 2013 [ME NewsWire]

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The Americas' SAP Users' Group (ASUG) Board of Directors announced today the launch of a national CEO search to replace CEO Bridgette Chambers, who departs the post on Dec. 31. She is leaving at the end of her contract having completed a successful financial turnaround of the world's largest independent community of SAP professionals.

ASUG’s Board Chairperson Michael Stoko said the organization would begin the search immediately with the goal of having a new CEO in place to ensure a smooth transition.

“Working with the board, Bridgette has done a great job bringing ASUG back to financial stability and to growing our membership and services to our members,” Stoko said. “During her tenure she has helped us achieve a revitalization of ASUG relevance to our members that is at an all-time high.”

The turnaround included growing initiatives globally; bringing operations and financial stability to a new level of success; and achieving a broader recognition in the business community by winning six national Stevie® Awards from The American Business Awards.

Chambers joined ASUG in June 2009 when the organization was struggling financially. “I accepted the position with the express goal of transforming the organization both operationally and financially, and we have exceeded both mine and the Board’s expectations. The foundation we have put in place has resulted in an organization that is in excellent health and has a sound vision for the future that will continue to serve ASUG members and the SAP global ecosystem.”
