Oracle hires Mark Hurd as president

Posted on Tuesday, September 07 2010 @ 12:45:57 CEST by

It didn't take former HP CEO Mark Hurd long to find a new job, as Oracle confirmed today that it has hired Hurd as president:
Hurd, a close friend of Oracle CEO Larry Ellison will replace Charles Phillips, who has resigned, Oracle said in a statement on Monday. Phillips was co-president alongside Safra Catz, who remains in her role.

Ellison had slammed HP's decision to oust Hurd, calling the actions of HP's board "cowardly.

Hurd resigned from HP on August 6, after a probe into sexual harassment allegations. HP said at the time that he filed inaccurate expense reports related to Jodie Fisher, a marketing contractor who worked for Hurd's office from 2007 through 2009.

This is kind of like someone announcing they just stepped in dog poo. It's not something you go "wow" about but more makes you go "eww" and feel sorry for that person.
