Quest’s new Board Chairman, Paul Brand, has said,
“I look forward to serving as the Chairman of the board for Quest during one of the most exciting times in Oracle’s user group history. The organization has gone through a period of significant growth over the past several years and is ideally positioned to help customers make informed decisions regarding their Oracle investments for the long-term. Also, we have many initiatives underway that are focused on serving Oracle customers as learning and networking mediums evolve. It is an exciting time to be involved Quest and I am looking forward to seeing what we are able to accomplish over the next 12 months.”
Quest has always been fortunate to have such strong Oracle customer leadership, and our new class of board members is no different. We are excited to add customers to the Quest board that have significant Oracle footprints (on-premise, cloud and hybrid) in their organizations. It is important that our board members resemble the community they serve.
Oracle User Groups are entering a period of significant change, and we have a board to help our organization navigate that change and deliver winning results for our members.
