Research Board Co-Founder Named to Oracle Board of Directors

Seligman also serves on the boards at Sun Microsystems, Akamai Technologies, and Dun & Bradstreet

Naomi Seligman, co-founder of the Research Board Inc., a private group of 100 influential CIOs, was named as the 12th member of the Oracle Corp. board of directors Friday.

Seligman is a senior partner at the IT consulting firm Ostriker von Simson Inc. and has been a member of Sun Microsystems Inc.'s board of directors since 1999. She also serves as a director at Dun & Bradstreet, Akamai Technologies, and is a former board member of identity management software maker Oblix, acquired by Oracle on March 25.

Members of the Research Board include CIOs from Wal-Mart, FedEx, General Motors, Boeing, and J.P. Morgan. The members of the Research Board, which Seligman co-founded in 1977, meet to discuss IT strategies.

"Naomi is a strong and very welcome addition to Oracle's Board of Directors," said Oracle CEO Larry Ellison in a statement announcing her appointment. "CEOs and CIOs throughout government and industry have long sought out and relied on her advice and counsel."

Seligman graduated from Vassar College with high honors in economics and received a graduate degree from the London School of Economics. She is a trustee of the Boston Science Museum.

Other Oracle board members include Ellison, Oracle presidents Charles Phillips and Safra Catz, chairman and former chief financial officer Jeffrey Henley, Jeffrey Berg, Raymond Bingham, Michael Boskin, Hector Garcia-Molina, Joseph Grundfest, Jack Kemp, and Don Lucas.
