Recently departed Oracle co-president Charles Phillips has been named chief executive at enterprise software vendor Infor.
The Atlanta-based company said that Phillips will take over the role from Jim Schaper, who will stay with the company as chairman.
"Charles Phillips is a proven executive who brings the diverse skill set, direct industry experience and track record of performance necessary to lead the company to continued growth," said Schaper.
"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."
Earlier this year, Phillips found himself the odd man out in a spat between Oracle and HP. When Mark Hurd was forced to resign as HP chief executive following a sexual harassment scandal, Oracle chief Larry Ellison hired him to take Phillips's position.
Following a brief public feud between the two firms, the move was finalised and Hurd took over as president of Oracle.
"Infor's focus on understanding and automating complex business processes, along with its commitment to constant innovation, has served customers well," said Phillips.
"I am eager to lead this proven team of over 8,000 employees through its next phase of growth."
