GERMANY – Technology brand SAP has taken top spot in the BrandZTM Top 50 Most Valuable German Brands ranking from WPP and Kantar Millward Brown.

David Roth, CEO EMEA and Asia, The Store WPP, said: “Germany is the juggernaut at the heart of the European economy and its brands are part of consumers’ lives all around the world. The government’s active encouragement of innovation led by Chancellor Angela Merkel and it’s recognition that this is a chance to build a new relationship with consumers is welcome as this is one area where even Germany’s biggest brands are vulnerable to global disruptive rivals.”
