Oracle's billboard bonker gets new job

Infor a penny, etc

Security for virtualized datacentres

Charles Phillips, ex-Oracle president, has got himself a new job at Infor.

Phillips came to the world's attention when his mistress rented a bunch of billboards in New York, San Francisco and Atlanta.

The adverts, complete with the message "You are my soulmate forever", were apparently designed to show the significance of the relationship. They included a link to an online gallery of pictures of the couple.

YaVaughnie Wilkins's cousin told the Register at the time that Wilkins ended the relationship when she discovered Phillips was still married.

Phillips admitted the eight and a half year affair and said he wished Wilkins well.

Phillips left Oracle to make room for Mark Hurd. He becomes chief executive officer of Infor which makes customer relationship and enterprise planning software.

Infor's chairman and chief executive Jim Schaper said of Phillips: "He is a true visionary in the technology industry and has a unique perspective drawn from his experience at one of our leading industry peers, in addition to his years on Wall Street."

Schaper will remain as chairman.

Phillips said he was keen to join the 8,000 strong firm and to lead it during a period of industry consolidation; he saw Oracle through some of its largest aquisitions.

Infor's take on Charles Phillips's appointment is here. ®
