Ousted HP CEO named co-president of Oracle

September 7th, 2010 at 11:44 AM

Talk about landing on your feet. HP’s former CEO, Mark Hurd, was forced to resign after allegations of personal misconduct were made public by the company’s board. Hurd was sent packing with a mere $28 million in cash and stock for his efforts; efforts that lasted just over five years at HP. The forced resignation of Hurd was denounced as “cowardly” by Oracle CEO Larry Ellison, and now it looks like Ellison is putting his money where his mouth is. The AP is reporting that Hurd has been named co-president of Mr. Ellison’s company, Oracle. “Mark did a brilliant job at HP and I expect he’ll do even better at Oracle. There is no executive in the IT world with more relevant experience than Mark,” said Ellison. “Oracle’s future is engineering complete and integrated hardware and software systems for the enterprise.” Oracle is the top database reseller in the world and, with Hurd’s expertise, is looking to expand its business into different areas.
