Friends and families are paying tributes on social media to Beloved Oracle Corp Chief Executive Officer Mark Hurd who recently passed away. Mr. Hurd died today Friday 18th 2019.

I’m very sorry to hear this. I worked for both NCR and HP when Mark Hurd was CEO and I was successful under his leadership. My thoughts are with his family and friends.
Former Oracle and HP CEO died after he stepped down from Oracle in Sept. I’ve interviewed thousands of execs over the years and Mark Hurd is in that category who could go toe to toe on any topic. He was an avid tennis player and if you watch my 59min interview in 2016 it was like a long tennis rally. RIP Mark Hurd.
RIP Mark Hurd. Oracle will miss you. Thank you for the time we spent together in NY for the Cloud Symposium. May your daughters and wife find peace.
Very sad to hear the news about the passing of Mark Hurd, Oracle CEO. We will all miss his friendly combativeness, his strong opinions, and his always well-considered vision of where the tech world was headed. His passing will leave a void in the industry and in our lives.
All I could find on Mark Hurd was that he donated to the Trump campaign and served on Trump’s transition team when he got elected. Nothing on whether he was deep state or not.
Had some good times and some tense times with Mark Hurd over the years. Even battled on the tennis court once. Pretty fascinating guy when you got to know him. A couple thoughts here. RIP
