Jeff Lettes has left Oracle as senior marcoms changes continue at top valley companies

By Tom Foremski for SiliconValleyWatcher

Jeff Lettes, Oracle's communications chief has left Oracle just a few months after joining SiliconValley's largest software company.

This is the latest in an unprecedented number of changes in senior marcoms VPs at Silicon Valley's top tech companies over the last six months.

Here are some of the top changes: Jeff Lettes leaves Applied Materials; Cindy McCaffrey leaves Google; Jim Finn leaves Oracle soon to be followed by Jennifer Glass; Alison Johnson leaves Hewlett-Packard; Andy Lark leaves Sun Microsystems; Pam Pollace leaves Intel; Robin Stoecker leaves Tibco Software; and now Jeff Lettes leaves Oracle.

Is it over? Did I leave anybody out? Is this a trend and what does it mean? I’m not sure what’s going on, if anything. But, it does seem a bit odd and I'm hoping some of our readers might know of an explanation. Leave a comment here or ping me: tom@siliconvalleywatcher.com.
