SAP wunderkind Agassi abandons code for clean tech
Ashlee Vance, March 28, 2007 (The Register)
The man once expected to take over SAP has left the software maker to initiate projects in clean technology.
His resignation will take effect at the end of the week of March 26-31.
SAP corporate HQ is in Germany, a world leader in alternative and renewable energies.
Agassi's peers at SAP expect him to form an alternative energy start-up. SAP recently extended the contract of CEO Henning Kagermann. Agassi had expected to be promoted to that position.
"I look forward to new opportunities, and working on issues that are important to me, including alternative energy and environmental policy issues, as well as the future of Israel," [Agassi] said.
