Blinklogic CEO Dave Morris issued a press release today announcing the appointment of new chief marketing officer Mike Thoma. As the release states, Mike worked at Oracle in the mid-80s. The text repeatedly makes reference to Oracle CEO Larry Ellison. “Like Larry Ellison, David Morris is a CEO who ‘gets’ the value of marketing as a competitive weapon to dominate an emerging market.”
Well that’s half true. Larry does understand marketing and I’m sure under the tutelage of Mike Thoma and his 50+ years of successful Attack Strategies David Morris might even become half the leader Larry Ellison is.
