NEWTOWN SQUARE, PA: Bob Evans, formerly SVP and content director of TechWeb, has joined SAP in the new position of communications strategist at the company.
In his role at the business software company Evans will write a blog called The Innovation Business. He will also work with SAP's strategy and innovation teams and do public speaking for the company.
Evans was formerly editor-in-chief of Information Week and editorial director of Information Week and TechWeb, both owned by UBM TechWeb.
SAP's former VP of PR Bill Wohl left the company in January to join Hewlett-Packard as chief communications officer. Wohl's departure came months after former SAP CEO Leo Apotheker took over as CEO of H-P, following the dismissal of Mark Hurd.
James Dever, who works in SAP's global communications department, is handling Wohl's duties until a replacement is found.
