This week, the German enterprise software giant made the announcement that Angela Colantuono has been promoted as the Senior Vice President (SVP) and Head of SAP SuccessFactors HXM Suite in the Asia-Pacific and Japan (APJ) region.
Now joining the SAP Regional Team headed by SAP APJ President Paul Marriott, the former Head of SAP SuccessFactors Australia and New Zealand (ANZ) Angela Colantuono will be responsible for developing the company’s regional go-to-market strategy, leading a team of world-class professionals, and ensuring that the organization is efficiently serving clients throughout APJ. According to Colantuono, helping businesses address clients’ requirements, engage in competitive markets, and respond to changes in the industry by establishing a productive workforce is one of her passions. She noted that this is how she plans to eventually support customers.
“HR leaders are being called to go beyond the traditional tools of HR and human capital management, and create work experiences that drive not only engagement and productivity, but also sustainability and profitability,” Colantuono further remarked.
In a LinkedIn post, Colantuono said that she considers it an honor to be able to work alongside SAP APJ President Paul Marriott and the outstanding SAP Regional Team as they continue to support clients in developing the workforce agility that is necessary for them to keep updated with new ways of doing things. She also acknowledged SAP ANZ President and Managing Director Damien Bueno and SAP ANZ Head of Industries Pete Andrew for their contributions — together with those of the senior leadership team — to the development of a great atmosphere for women to thrive and achieve their ambitions.

It is also worth noting that Colantuono takes on the responsibilities that were previously held by Aaron Green, who was promoted to the position of Chief Marketing and Solutions Officer (CMSO) for SAP SuccessFactors. Additionally, Green disclosed in a post that he published on LinkedIn that he is really enthusiastic about the field of HXM and the ways in which businesses can improve talent engagement as a tool to generate more meaningful results.
“I could not be more excited to start this new chapter of my career at SAP SuccessFactors and the opportunity to change work for good with this incredible team,” he said.
Commenting on the appointment of Colantuono as the new SVP and Head of SAP SuccessFactors HXM Suite in the region, Marriott welcomed his colleague’s extensive knowledge and experience in human capital management (HCM), and her solid leadership track record.
“With flexible work arrangements here to stay, organisations are increasingly focused on building and strengthening a supportive work environment, and a culture that prioritises employee wellbeing. In a turbulent environment, where the rapidly evolving nature of work continually creates new challenges, organisations are prioritising the experience of their total workforce,” Marriott concluded.
The cloud-based SAP SuccessFactors Suite provides services to more than 218 million people throughout the world, using 45 different languages. These services include core human resources (HR) and payroll, talent management, HR analytics and workforce planning, and employee experience management (XM).
Moreover, the solutions aim to provide individualized experiences that keep people engaged, growing, efficient, and interconnected to help employers establish the workforce agility that is vital to maintain constant innovation. SAP SuccessFactors earned consecutive recognitions in December 2021 from the analyst companies Forrester and Gartner, which further strengthened its position in the HCM and talent management market category.
