Oracle co-CEO Mark Hurd passes away, age 62 Featured

By

Hurd was co-CEO of the global enterprise software company, and the announced successor to Larry Ellison, 75. Hurd's passing follows his absence from Oracle OpenWorld last month for health reasons.

Mark Vincent Hurd came to Oracle from HP, and along with founder and Chief Technical Officer, Larry Ellison, and co-CEO Safra Catz, led the company through a major cloud vision that saw all core applications re-architected and the acquisition of NetSuite for $US 9.3b.

Oracle has not publicly stated details around Hurd's illness. Only last month, September 2019, Hurd was expected, as usual, to present at Oracle's annual OpenWorld conference in San Francisco. Days prior to the event Oracle announced Hurd would be absent for health reasons.

Ellison and Catz stepped in to fill the gap, with Ellison becoming emotional during one keynote presentation. He said he missed Mark Hurd and hoped he recovered. "I don't have many friends," Ellison said. "I can't afford to lose any."

Hurd passed away on Friday 18th October 2019, age 62. He was born 1 January 1957.
