SUSE has appointed Melissa Di Donato as the next CEO of the company to succeed, Nils Brauckmann, who will be retiring and leaving SUSE.

“I am incredibly proud of SUSE’s progress and growth over the last eight years, which has culminated in it securing independent status,” Brauckmann said.

Prior to SUSE, Di Donato was chief operating officer and chief revenue officer at SAP, where she was responsible for the worldwide revenue, profit, and customer satisfaction of the company’s digital core solutions.
