SAUG CEO resigns
SAP Australian User Group (SAUG) has announced that their CEO Mark Baker has elected to resign from the company.
Mr Baker, who first joined SAUG in February 2012, departs following a long and successful career at the organisation.
“I am truly grateful to Matthew Perry, all past Chairs, the current and past Committee members, our members, and all my SAUG colleagues for the opportunity to have been be part of such a special organisation. As I leave SAUG for a new journey, I do so safe in the knowledge SAUG has the capacity to take the next steps," said Mr Baker.
“Let me first congratulate and thank Mark for everything he’s done in his distinguished SAUG career. He’s been a pleasure to work with, and I wish him all the very best in his future endeavours," said Matthew Perry, Chair of SAUG.
"We are extremely grateful for the numerous successful initiatives and significant contribution Mark has made to SAUG’s transformation. He has turned the SAUG from a financially struggling organisation into one with a very strong balance sheet, despite introducing new initiatives and members services and engaging increased staff numbers to deliver these. The current solid financial base will allow SAUG to continue to introduce new initiatives and services well into the future, delivering greater value to our members."
"We are currently in the market for a new CEO and hope to make an appointment before the end of November. In the interim SAUG staff will continue to manage and implement SAUG’s day to day activities, reporting to the Chair and Vice-Chair of the SAUG Board."
Mr Baker’s last day as CEO of SAUG will be Friday 22 November 2019.
