Lawrence Joseph Larry Ellison is an American business magnate, co-founder and chief executive officer of Oracle Corporation, a major enterprise software company. As of 2011 he is the fifth richest person in the world, with a personal wealth of $39.5 billion.
Larry Ellison was born in New York City to Florence Spellman, an unwed 19-year-old. Ellison graduated from Eugene Field Elementary School on Chicagos north side in January, 1958 and attended Sullivan High School at least through the fall of 1959 before moving to South Shore.
Ellison and his partners won a two-year contract to build a relational database management system (RDBMS) for the CIA. The projects code name: Oracle. They finished the project a year ahead of schedule and used the extra time to develop their system for commercial applications. They named their commercial RDBMS Oracle as well. In 1980, Ellisons company had only eight employees, and revenues were less than $1 million, but the following year, IBM itself adopted Oracle for its mainframe systems, and Oracles sales doubled every year for the next seven years. The million dollar company was becoming a billion dollar company. Ellison renamed the company Oracle Corporation, for its best-selling product.
Today, Lawrence Ellison has his principal home in Woodside, California. He served as President of Oracle from 1978 to 1996, and undertook two stints as Chairman of the Board, from 1990 to 1992, and again from 1995 to 2004.
