Mark Hurd gets a Labor Day present – hired as co-president of Oracle

Oracle has officially announced that ousted former HP CEO Mark Hurd has joined Oracle as co-President.

According to The New York Times, Hurd’s close friend at Oracle – who happens to be CEO Larry Ellison – criticized HP for letting Hurd go and believes that “Mark did a brilliant job at H.P. and I expect he’ll do even better at Oracle. There is no executive in the I.T. world with more relevant experience than Mark.” Hurd is replacing Charles E. Phillips Jr. as co-president and director of Oracle.

So. Much. Tech.

Some of the biggest names in tech are coming to TNW Conference in Amsterdam this May.

There had been rumors circling around the tech scene for days that Hurd would be joining Oracle, and now – ironically perhaps on Labor Day – Hurd has himself a new job.
