Charles Phillips has served as CEO of Infor since 2010, during which time the company more than doubled in size and became the first major software company to offer an integrated, end-to-end application suite for entire industries: the first Industry Cloud Company. Infor is also the first large business applications company to adopt a public cloud platform at scale (70+ million users on AWS), to establish a captive design agency in New York (Hook & Loop), and to create a captive AI/science team in Kendall Square (MIT).
Prior to Infor, Phillips was President of Oracle Corporation and a member of its Board of Directors. During his seven and a half year-tenure, the company tripled in size and successfully acquired 70 companies. Prior to Oracle, Phillips was a Managing Director in the Technology Group at Morgan Stanley, where he was an Institutional Investor All Star for ten consecutive years.
Before his business career, Phillips was a Captain in the U.S. Marine Corps in the 2nd Battalion, 10th Marines artillery unit in a line of three generations of military service. In 2012, Phillips was the guest speaker at the Marine Corps' 237th birthday ball for his old unit, after their return from Afghanistan.
Phillips holds a BS in Computer Science from the U.S. Air Force Academy, a JD from New York Law School, and an MBA from Hampton University; he is also a member of the Georgia State Bar.
