30 Notable IT Executive Moves: June 2012


Gary Koopman

The path from HP to Oracle is getting some wear, and in late May Gary Koopman became the latest to walk it. Koopman, most recently vice president of U.S. distribution at HP, is now group vice president of North America hardware, alliances and channel sales at Oracle. He'd been with HP since 2007 and has been in the industry nearly 28 years. Koopman's exit from HP to Oracle followed those of Tom LaRocca, now vice president of worldwide product strategy and alliances, and Mark Hurd, who landed at Oracle as co-president.
