Larry Ellison is Not Stepping Down from Oracle Leadership

Ellison commented on the call that both Hurd and Katz have done a great job and deserve the title of CEO. That said, Ellison made it clear that he will remain very actively involved in a manner very similar to what he has done to date.

“I’m going to continue to work with Thomas Kurian in software engineering and John Fowler in hardware engineering and Ed Screven and Mark and Safra as I have exactly in the past,” Ellison said. ” So I’m going to continue doing what I have been doing over the last several years, they’re going to continue what they’ve been doing over the last several years.”
