Infrastructure hardware vendor Fujitsu Technology Solutions has named Rolf Schwirz as its new CEO. Schwirz joins the company from SAP, where he was heading the software firm's ‘mature markets' business in EMEA.

His switch to a hardware-centric company comes after an extensive period of working in the software market. Prior to his time at SAP, Schwirz spent 12 years in various roles at Oracle, including stints as sales chief of its German operation and senior VP for western continental Europe.

Schwirz will report directly to Richard Christou, corporate senior executive VP at Fujitsu Limited. Christou has been overseeing affairs since the departure of former CEO, Kai Flore, back in June.  

"I believe Rolf has the breadth of experience in both product and services to bring real added value and leadership to Fujitsu," said Christou in a statement announcing the appointment.

The company says that Schwirz will take up his new position by November at the latest.
