Appoints Bas Kamphuis & Maggie Key to executive roles
Austin, TX – February 4, 2020 – Magnitude Software, a leader in delivering unified application data management, today announced the addition of Bas Kamphuis as General Manager, Productivity and Maggie Key as Chief Customer Officer, expanding the company’s strategic, SAP ecosystem and customer expertise. The additions to the leadership team follow a substantial investment in Magnitude by 3i Group in March 2019, which empowered Magnitude to build on its eight acquisitions to deliver accelerated value to a growing, blue-chip customer base.
Kamphuis and Key will leverage their extensive expertise and Magnitude’s global operating platform to deliver solutions for organizations heavily invested in ERPs such as SAP and Oracle that struggle to get value from their hybrid cloud and application environments. Magnitude solutions enable customers to more easily capitalize on the digital revolution by simplifying and easing the flow of data.
Kamphuis brings to Magnitude 20+ years of cloud and SAP leadership experience, having most recently led the global commercial relations between Amazon Web Services and partners SAP and Microsoft. He will shape and deliver Magnitude’s global growth strategy in the SAP and productivity markets with responsibility for driving the solution roadmap, as well as expand Magnitude’s revenue and market share via a customer-driven culture and strategic partnerships.
A strategic, customer-centric executive, Key will build on her customer success track record, which includes leadership roles with Salesforce, Dell, Accruent and Anaconda, to drive customer priorities across the entire Magnitude team and take the company to the next level of customer success. Responsible for reinventing the customer experience, she brings together all functions to deliver the greatest value to customers through trusted partnerships that increase customer retention, satisfaction and growth.
“I could not be more excited to welcome Bas and Maggie to our top-notch leadership team,” shares Chris Ney, chairman and CEO, Magnitude Software. “With our newly expanded team at the helm, we have incredible breadth and depth – plus the operational expertise – to bring greater value to the SAP ecosystem and reinvent our customer experience around the globe. These executives broaden our solution orientation and deepen our understanding of customers, enabling us to continue accelerating our global footprint, market share and revenue growth.”

Over 1,500 customers, including 50% of the Fortune 100, use Magnitude solutions today. The global cloud ERP market is expected to grow to $28.8 billion in 2022 based on Statista forecasts within a total ERP market that Gartner forecasts will be worth $44 billion by 2022.
“My team and I have the unique privilege of collaborating with Magnitude’s global customer base to help them get the most value out of their SAP and cloud investments,” comments Kamphuis, who has held corporate strategy, alliance partnership and IT leadership roles at HP, Microsoft, Accenture and Capgemini, in addition to serving as General Manager, Strategic ISVs at Amazon Web Services. “I look forward to building on Magnitude’s success by way of core technology integration, and full solution design and delivery to seamlessly enable customer transition from legacy systems to the cloud – accelerating growth and innovation for them – and for Magnitude.”
