SAP published a post dated today on its official blog highlighting the progress it is making in increasing its female ranks both at the board and executive levels.

In particular, it profiled six female leaders at the company.

However, the first woman profiled, Chief Human Resources Officer and Executive Board member Luisa Deplazes Delgado, is already departing, it was announced last week. The story of her departure may have been overlooked by many since it came out the same day as the news that SuccessFactors founder Lars Dalgaard was leaving (he will remain an advisor, and it was announced yesterday he would join Andreessen Horowitz as a general partner). Delgado, who will become CEO of an unspecified startup, will leave at the end of June. It was a short stay for Delgado, who joined SAP from P&G in September 2012.

Her predecessor in the position didn't stay long either. Angelika Dammann left in 2011 after a year on the job,

SAP's blog post today did not mention Delgado's planned departure.
