Senior Vice President, Digital Transformation Office APJ at SAP
At SAP, we believe that when you bring everything you are, you can become everything you want.
The day I became a parent, I became a better leader.
Originally hailing from Belgium, Peggy Renders has lived in Melbourne, Australia, for 13 years. As SVP, Digital Transformation Office for the APJ region, her role demands extensive travel to meet with teams in different countries. But Peggy is also a single mom, and spending time with her sons is a top priority. Working at SAP allows her the flexibility to have a demanding job and be a great parent. She puts family first, and in doing so, she gives permission for those around her to do the same.
"The results are there and will be better if people can be who they are and can pay attention to all the different aspects of their life."
In the earlier years of her career, Peggy seized the opportunities offered to her by SAP – working on complex deals and travelling around the world – and quickly solidified her reputation as a hard worker who loves new challenges. She believes the pursuit of personal development is limitless and continues to find new ways to improve herself in all aspects of her life. After taking time off to take care of her young children, she returned to the company and became a people manager, which she believes is her true calling. Passionate about helping employees in their careers, she is a mentor to many and makes the time to connect with as many people as she can despite her busy schedule. She says, "I believe that my purpose in life is to help people dream big, and the best way to do that is to lead by example. Anything is possible when you dare to leave your comfort zone."
