Since the turn of the economy, technology hasn’t been doing so hot. People just can’t afford to replace their computers and other hardware as often as they’d been doing before. What’s a technology company like Oracle to do? Hire a new president!


Recently, Oracle has hired Mark Hurd, the former CEO of Hewlett-Packard. Hurd formerly helped run the $100 billion business, and he specialized in expanding the company through acquisitions.

Business news says he’ll be reporting to CEO Larry Ellison and working with president Safra Catz.
