UK Oracle User Group’s CEO resigns for career break

James Haslam, who joined in July 1997, is leaving UKOUG on 6 March 2015.


The CEO of the UK Oracle User Group has resigned after 19 years at the association.

James Haslam, who joined in July 1997 as financial controller, is leaving UKOUG on 6 March 2015 for a career break, using the opportunity to travel.

During his tenure, Haslam held a range of leading positions, including operations manager, general manager, director of operations to the CEO and board member.

In its announcement, the association said he played a "pivotol role" in building the UKOUG’s position as a leading user group worldwide, and expanding the group’s portfolio to include the user groups of PeopleSoft, JD Edwards, Hyperion, Siebel, Solaris and Taleo.

"The role James is vacating is a key leadership role to both UKOUG and in the wider User Group community. As such it is important that James’ replacement is selected with care. To that end, until a replacement is selected, we will be appointing an interim CEO supported by the Senior Management Team," Fiona Martin, UKOUG’s members advocate chair, said in a statement.

"I’m sure you will all join me in wishing James all the very best for the future. As and when a replacement is appointed I will not hesitate to communicate that to you."
