Oracle chief bean-counter mysteriously quits database giant

Software maker drags the Catz in to replace him

Eight steps to building an HP BladeSystem

Software maker Oracle has let go of its chief finance officer, Jeff Epstein, without revealing why the exec had resigned from the company.

He has been replaced by the firm's current president Safra Catz.

Epstein, who had reported to Catz during his tenure, only joined Oracle in September 2008.

The company confirmed Epstein's resignation but declined to comment on the reason behind the erstwhile Oracle CFO's departure.

Catz, meanwhile, has returned to her previous role as Oracle's CFO while retaining her prez position. From November 2005 until Epstein's arrival at the database giant, Catz held down the same jobs.

Even during Epstein's CFO reign, Catz was typically more vocal during Oracle's number-crunching conference calls. Here's one such cheeky example. ®
