Ex-Oracle Pres. Charles Phillips Lands at Infor

A sideshow to Oracle's controversial hiring of former HP CEO Mark Hurd as president was the departure of Charles Phillips. Phillips was a key executive at Oracle, directly responsible for many of the computer giant's major acquisitions.

But as eCRM Guide reports, it didn't long for Phillips to land on his feet. The article details Phillips' new responsibilities as CEO of Infor, a provider of ERP and other business applications to mid-sized businesses that's quietly achieved an impressive level of success and is gearing up for a major new release in January.

Charles Phillips has rebounded from his awkward exit from Oracle, landing the CEO spot at ERP provider Infor.

Phillips, the former president of Oracle (NASDAQ: ORCL), left in September after the company appointed former HP (NYSE: HPQ) Mark Hurd to the position. Oracle claimed Phillips' departure had been mutually agreed to and been in the works for a while, but Oracle moved quickly to hire Hurd once he became available.
