A personal note from Jerry McCreary, Head of Human Resources, SAP (former manager & colleague): “You helped me beyond what we got done. Maybe I had a little vision but without you (Fred) it would have never gotten any traction at SAP. You influenced and taught me valuable things (and that in itself is not easy to do) and they have had a lasting effect. Opening the heart and taking risks, opens the mind and accomplishing great things. Thanks for taking risks with me. Still have much to learn and the progress most likely is not as good without you by my side.”
