About Larry Ellison

Larry Ellison is chairman, chief technology officer and cofounder of software giant Oracle, of which he owns just under 40%.

He gave up the Oracle CEO role in 2014 after 37 years at the helm.

Oracle has grown in part through steady acquisitions of software companies: the biggest was $28.3 billion for electronic health records company Cerner in 2021.

In 2020, Ellison moved permanently to the Hawaiian island Lanai, which he bought nearly all of in 2012 for $300 million.

Ellison sat on Tesla's board from December 2018 to August 2022. He still owns about 15 million shares in the electric carmaker.
