"I am pleased to announce that Sudipta will now be responsible for the Wonderware business," said Henriksson in the press release. "With his diverse background in core engineering and software, he brings a unique set of skills to the job and was the right choice to step into the shoes of a very successful leader in Mike Bradley."

Mike Bradley became president of Wonderware in November 2002 and was “instrumental in driving the HMI and SCADA businesses,” Invensys noted, “then taking the company deeper into other manufacturing and infrastructure spaces. Under his leadership, Wonderware has consistently achieved over four years of double-digit growth,” the company said.

In the Invensys statement about the transition, Bradley commented, "My time at Wonderware has been some of the most gratifying years of my career to date. After collaborating with Sudipta as an SAP business partner, and later helping to bring him in as my successor, I have every confidence that Wonderware is in capable hands."

Sudipta expressed appreciation, saying, "It is rare to have an opportunity as exciting and as large as the one emerging in this space. I sincerely thank Mike and look forward to expanding the capabilities of our solutions to reach well beyond the 100,000-plus global plants that we currently serve."

Sudipta joined Invensys in August 2007 as chief software solutions officer. He came from SAP AG, where he was senior vice president of solutions management for SAP's supply chain, manufacturing and product lifecycle management applications. Sudipta holds bachelor's and master's degrees in chemical engineering and in business administration, with specialization in marketing, finance and operations, according to information provided by Invensys.
