- Leaked org charts show Oracle’s cloud leaders after major organizational changes at the company.
- Oracle earlier this week began layoffs that could affect thousands of employees globally.
- The cuts came after Oracle quietly reorganized its cloud unit to focus on new core initiatives.
An internal Oracle organizational chart seen by Insider shows the 30 people running Oracle’s all-important technical and cloud sides of the business after the company quietly reorganized them in June.
Oracle earlier this week began layoffs that could affect thousands of employees globally, primarily in its marketing, advertising, and customer experience units. But the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure has been virtually unaffected by layoffs, multiple employees told Insider. OCI is the cloud taking on Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud, and it’s the business where Oracle’s biggest hopes for growth are pinned.
Instead, Oracle reorganized OCI to focus on what it describes as “four pillars” — infrastructure, security and developer services, core platforms, and data and emerging services, an internal email seen by Insider said. Matt Ryanczak, a top executive who managed the operations and support organization, left the company after he was moved under Jae Evans, Oracle’s chief information officer, another internal email showed.
But changes at the top of this unit have been going on for months. In March, Don Johnson, Oracle’s cloud and AI leader, stepped down from the platform and AI-services organization that he formed about a year prior, leaving only the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure boss Clay Magouyrk in charge of the company’s cloud unit. In an internal email at the time, Johnson said he would advise on healthcare initiatives.
It wasn’t the first time Johnson had stepped back from a role leading OCI. In June 2020, Johnson told employees that he was stepping down from direct leadership of the cloud unit to pursue new projects within Oracle, tapping Magouyrk to replace him. Johnson returned in December 2020 to start the new cloud and artificial-intelligence organization that he described in an email to employees as “an extension of OCI, not a division of it.”
Now, the org chart shows, Johnson has about 1,200 reports, including those leading healthcare, engineering, and artificial-intelligence teams.
Magouyrk, meanwhile, now leads all of OCI’s 10,500 employees, the org chart shows. Greg Pavlik is leading the largest team within OCI, with about 3,500 reports. Magouyrk elevated Pavlik in the recent reorganization to become senior vice president of OCI, so he now runs a combined OCI Infrastructure and core-services org.
The below org chart focuses on the people running the technical and cloud side of Oracle’s business, so it doesn’t include CEO Safra Catz, who is generally considered to run the finance, sales, and marketing sides of the business. The chart features the people who report up to Larry Ellison, the chairman and chief technology officer; Johnson; and Magouyrk, as depicted on the company’s internal org chart.
