ORACLE Asia-Pacific has replaced Australian senior manager Nick Evered with former Hyperion executive Sebastien Marotte.
Mr Evered, Oracle's Asia-Pacific senior vice-president for technology sales, is understood to have left the company earlier this month, as reported in The Australian last week.
Mr Evered's departure follows a rejig of Liberal Party proportions at the database maker.
A few months ago Oracle Asia-Pacific head Brian Mitchell also left the company.
Oracle today confirmed that Mr Marotte had replaced Mr Evered.
Mr Marotte comes to the role with a slight change in job titles. As senior vice-president for the technology business unit, he will provide overall leadership for the company's technology solutions portfolio, business strategy, and market development in the region.
He was previously the company's vice-president of enterprise performance management and business intelligence.
According to Mr Marotte's profile on Oracle's website, he has more than 20 years experience in the business software arena.
Mr Marotte has been with Hyperion for over 15 years in senior management roles across various locations, and was the company's Asia-Pacific vice-president since 2005.
Mr Evered spent more than a decade at Oracle where he began his career in Australia managing its alliances and channels division.
Oracle's new Asia-Pacific head and former BEA executive, Steve Au-Yeung, is said to be fine-tuning the company's operations across the region.
Oracle last week exceeded analysts' expectations by posting a stronger-than-expected quarterly profit. Net income rose from $US840 million to $US1.1 billion in the first quarter ending August 21.
However, Oracle's business management software sales dipped 12 per cent to $US331 million, a performance some analysts expressed concern over.
