I joined Oracle Direct in 1996 on a role that when I look back now has long disappeared. What I did not expect back then is that I would end up leading a team of top Technology Sales Consultants covering over 70 internal Sales reps for the UK and Ireland.
What I did not imagine back then either is the scale of knowledge and skill that Oracle has helped me acquire throughout the 18 years that I have been here. It has been a truly exciting journey and it is getting even more and more exciting every day. Now I am looking at the future from a feeling of being on top of the world in the best possible company that will motivate anyone that wants to be involved in using or adopting the latest IT technology and applying the best selling methodologies.
Oracle has been amongst the Industry leaders on the 95% of the products it sells, for years and will continue to be for years to come. No one has the ability to acquire the top market leading products and integrate them so solidly and transparently like Oracle does. No other company offers the best product portfolio, the best integrated products, no matter what industry you look at like Oracle does. When Oracle says they will be the 1st on something, you bet, it’s going to happen. The latest challenge now is become number 1 in Cloud, whether SaaS, PaaS or IaaS, only Oracle has what is needed to do it without depending on 3rd party suppliers. The only company that caters for big and small customers equally.[Read More]

Matthijs: “For the past two years I have been working as an Oracle Direct Core Technology Inside Sales representative for Named Accounts in the Netherlands, based in Malaga, Spain.
In my case, working for the Dutch OD Core Technology team means that I am responsible for the Account Management of Larger companies in the Travel & Transportation and the Manufacturing, Retail & Distribution sector. I work together with the Oracle Field Account Managers and our Field Sales Management in the Netherlands where I am often the main point of contact for customers. This means that I deal with their requests and I manage their various issues, provide solutions and suggestions based on the Oracle Core Technology portfolio. I work on interesting projects with end-customers, making financial proposals and building business cases. It is a very interesting sales environment and for the last two years I improved my skills substantially. This month I will finish my Inside Sales career in Malaga to move to a position within Field Sales in the Netherlands. Oracle Direct has proven to be a great stepping stone for my career...[Read More]

We congratulate Nico for introducing a new way to talk to the customers! He is not only involving Sales Consulting to his customer meetings, but he also surprises the clients.

Nico always has great and creative ideas for Demand Generation and he is highly motivated to work hard! He continuously spreads ideas, whether it is about contacting new clients or creating a concept of making our customers understand the company Oracle and its structure better.

The Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) is an Irish amateur sporting and cultural organisation, focused mainly on promoting Gaelic games such as hurling, gaelic football and camogie.
Despite the fact that the #Oracleteam were newcomers to the game, having only been set up in the past few months, the team saw off the competition from other well-seasoned firms such as ESB, Deloitte, Media Gaels and Citi Group.
The team which was founded by Stephen Twomey, Colm
Bermingham and Tony Dunne from the Business Development Group in Oracle Direct
