Former SAP Executive Michael Kramer has joined Steelwedge Software, Inc. as SVP of Sales and Marketing. Kramer joins Steelwedge at a time of extremely rapid growth. He will be responsible for scaling the Steelwedge sales and marketing organizations and ensuring that Steelwedge maintains its leadership role as the “dominant best-of-breed Sales and Operations (S&OP) vendor.” (AMR Research).
In his role at SAP, Kramer was responsible for increasing revenue by over ten times within his region and closing major deals at companies such as Starbucks, McKesson, T-Mobile, Clorox, Coors, and Adidas. Kramer also served as Director of Sales at Yantra where he increased sales by four fold in four years and helped drive Yantra’s highly successful acquisition by AT&T Sterling Commerce. Kramer was also the VP of Sales at Accruent and Amitive where his teams doubled sales during his employment.
“Sales and Operations Planning is the most strategic process a company has.” said Michael Kramer, “At its core, SAP is a transactional and BI system and does not offer a practical S&OP solution. Steelwedge is the only vendor that offers a cloud-based S&OP solution that truly addresses the needs of SAP customers while offering seamless integration into SAP.”
“We are extremely pleased with the progress Steelwedge is making in rapidly growing revenues and attracting world-class talent” said “Glen Margolis, CEO of Steelwedge Software, Inc. “And, we are very confident that Michael’s leadership will enable us to further cement our position as the dominant S&OP solutions provider.”
Also joining the Steelwedge sales team as VP of Solutions is Ed Lewis. Ed brings over twenty years of experience in manufacturing and is a specialist in Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP). Prior to Steelwedge, Ed was the CEO of a supply chain technology services provider, President of an industrial manufacturing company, and Director of Materials at a high tech manufacturing organization.
