APEarlier this week, we heard rumors that a top Salesforce.com sales person was jumping ship to join Oracle.
FitzGerald is seemingly bucking the trend. In recent months, we've heard multiple reports of sales people leaving Oracle for Salesforce.com, some unconfirmed, some announced. For instance, earlier this month 17-year Oracle sales veteran Anthony Fernicola became Salesforce.com's president of Global Enterprise Sales.
FitzGerald was in charge of Salesforce's Service Cloud, a customer support tool that competes with products like Zendesk.
Instead it seems to indicate how Salesforce's new sales leader, Keith Block, is marking his territory. He joined Salesforce.com in June, a year after he left Oracle where he was head of North American sales.
Sources close to Oracle tell Business Insider that grabbing FitzGerald was something of a coup for Oracle.
