SAP's McDermott steps down; Morgan, Klein become co-CEOs

BERLIN (Reuters) - Bill McDermott stood down on Friday after a decade at the helm of SAP <SAPG.DE> and will be replaced by Jennifer Morgan and Christian Klein, who will become co-CEOs with immediate effect, said the German business software company.

SAP announced the move after rushing out third-quarter results, bringing down the curtain on an era in which McDermott undertook a string of acquisitions that drove growth but also created complexity that frustrated many clients.
