Jim Davis

Director, Americas, Automotive Industry Business Unit


Jim Davis, Director-Americas for the SAP Automotive Industry Business Unit joined SAP in February of 2010, coming to SAP with a diverse background in automotive, aerospace & defense, and professional services industries – with hands-on experience in manufacturing and supply chain, program management and government contracting.

In his current position, Mr. Davis is charged with the responsibility of managing the SAP Automotive team in the Americas with the aim of making SAP’s global automotive customers best-run businesses leveraging SAP technology and solutions.

His personal fascination with all things automotive started from the jump-seat of his father’s 1962 Austin-Healy 3000 Mk II, accelerated with his tenure at Honda of America Mfg. and continues to this day – spending weekends detailing the family’s toys, experimenting on the possibilities and use cases of the connected automobile, and helping transform his son’s Jeep into an off-road monster!
