NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- Mark Hurd, who abruptly resigned last month as chief executive of Hewlett-Packard, has landed at another big tech company.
Also on Monday, Oracle said that Charles Phillips had resigned his post as a co-president, as well as his seat on the board. Phillips had been a key member of Oracle's executive team since 2003.
Hurd will report to Oracle CEO Larry Ellison.
"Mark did a brilliant job at HP and I expect he'll do even better at Oracle," Ellison said in a statement. "There is no executive in the IT world with more relevant experience than Mark."
At the time of his departure, Hewlett-Packard executives said that Hurd, who is married, failed to tell the board about a personal relationship with a female marketing contractor hired by his office. He filed inaccurate expense account reports in a bid to keep the relationship secret, HP said.
Jodie Fisher, an actress who had been employed as a contractor for HP, subsequently came forward and said that there had been no sexual relationship between them.
Hurd was credited with reviving Hewlett-Packard following the tumultuous tenure of his predecessor, Carly Fiorina.
