Mark Hurd

Mark Hurd

President, Oracle Corporation

As President, Mr. Hurd oversees the corporate direction and strategy for Oracle’s global field operations, including marketing, sales, consulting, alliances and channels, and support. He focuses on strategy, leadership, innovation, and customers. Says Mr. Hurd, “It’s our job as a company to help our customers save money and innovate.”

Before joining Oracle, Mr. Hurd served as Chairman of the Board, Chief Executive Officer, and President of HP, where his focus on customers, innovation, improved operational efficiency, and execution led to significant company growth. Prior to that, he spent 25 years at NCR Corporation, where he held a variety of management, operations, sales, and marketing roles, ultimately serving as the company’s Chief Executive Officer and President and leading a successful effort to improve operational efficiency, strengthen the product line, and drive growth.

Mr. Hurd was listed as one of Forbes’ Market’s Best Managers for 2009. In 2007, Mr. Hurd was named one of Fortune Magazine’s 25 Most Powerful People in Business. He was recognized multiple times by Business 2.0 magazine as one of the 50 Who Matter Now and by Barron’s in its Best CEOs lists. The San Francisco Chronicle honored him as the 2008 CEO of the Year. He appeared on CRN’s 25 Most Influential Executives list in three separate years and was twice one of CRN’s Top 25 Executives.

Mr. Hurd earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration in 1979 from Baylor University, in Waco, Texas, which he attended on a tennis scholarship. He continues to show his passion for tennis, supporting Baylor’s national championship tennis program through philanthropic donations to upgrade and renovate facilities in the Hurd Tennis Building, which is part of the Hurd Tennis Center. He also supports the Baylor Bear Foundation and the Men’s Tennis Excellence Fund. He has been honored with the 2012–2013 Baylor Meritorious Achievement Award—the Baylor Legacy Award—in recognition of his extraordinary service and philanthropy to Baylor.

Since joining Oracle, Mr. Hurd has worked to share Oracle’s strategy and vision with customers, partners, shareholders, and investors. “Our strategy is complete stack, open, best-of-breed at every single layer of the architecture,” he says. “We vertically integrate those best-of-breed pieces for extreme performance and total-cost-of-ownership benefit to give you differentiation. Our products are designed to be the best technology at every single layer of the stack, and then be vertically integrated. We want to give customers choices for how they access that technology—on premises, building a private cloud, using a public cloud, or a hybrid cloud combination. It’s your choice how you get access to all of this technology.”

As one of the world’s largest enterprise technology companies, Oracle has more than 390,000 customers in 145 countries and annual revenues of $37.1 billion. The company engineers hardware and software to work together in the cloud and in customer data centers—from servers and storage, to database and middleware, through applications. Oracle is the only vendor able to offer a complete technology stack in which every layer is engineered to work together as a single system. Oracle’s industry-leading on-premises and cloud-based solutions give customers complete deployment flexibility and unmatched benefits, including unbreakable security, high availability, scalability, energy efficiency, powerful performance, and low total cost of ownership. The company has an active mergers and acquisitions program, with more than 80 in the past six years, including the industry-transforming acquisition of Sun Microsystems.

Mr. Hurd’s leadership in managing past acquisition integrations has enabled him to take a significant role in Oracle’s acquisition strategy. He is also responsible for Oracle’s global business units for industries, which build products for specific industries such as telecommunications, financial services, health sciences, retail, utilities, and public sector. Says Mr. Hurd, “This industry focus is an important strategy for us. We get deeper into these industry verticals because they solve our customers' most difficult problems, which are very industry- and business-specific.”

Marie-Anne Morgan

Marie-Anne Morgan

Vice President Human Resources, Elizabeth Arden International

Graduated from the University of Neuchatel (Switzerland) in Psychology of work, Marie-Anne has always been interested by the interaction between people and business. She has built her career with the strong belief that you can’t support an organization from an HR stand-point unless you understand the economics of its business.

Marie-Anne has worked in small/family companies as well as in large international groups such as Unilever. During 6 years, she had her own consulting firm in HR interim management. She has participated in a number of due diligence processes in view of M&A and subsequent organization re-designs.

In all the positions she held, she considered that a key factor to success is to build a real strategic partnership between HR and the business it supports. This way, decisions around opportunities and challenges are made as a team and therefore take into consideration not only the pros and cons at strategic and operational levels, but also anticipate the organizational impact of those decisions.

Elizabeth Arden is a global prestige beauty products company with an extensive portfolio of prestige fragrance, skin care and cosmetics brands. In the last few years, Elizabeth Arden has grown organically, geographically and through acquisitions. This required the HR team to attract and recruit in territories new to them, to manage talents in a creative way and in some instances, to re-allocate resources behind new strategic priorities.

The International business of Elizabeth Arden is constituted by a sum of small nimble structures in each country. It is therefore imperative to attract and retain talents through pay-for-performance compensation and have strong assessment tools in place to manage the business and the individual performance in a fair manner. It also requires demonstrating creativity to offer development opportunities to the best performers.

The Company always had robust data systems to support business decision making. In 2012, it was decided to implement Oracle Fusion so organizational decisions could be taken using similar rigorous and data driven tools. Elizabeth Arden has successfully implemented Fusion across all its International sites.
