REDWOOD SHORES, CA: Oracle continues to shuffle its senior communications staff in the wake of Dave Samson's departure last month.
VP of global communications Jim Finn promoted Kristin Hollins to replace Samson. Finn also increased the responsibilities of Jennifer Glass, VP of external affairs. Finn has tapped Chimene Stewart, formerly head of applications PR, to take on Hollins' previous role as VP of product and services communications. Hollins, Glass, and Stewart all report directly to Finn.
Finn also announced that senior director of internal communications Donna Uchida is leaving to become senior director of employee communications for The Gap.
Samson, who was VP of international PR and executive communications at Oracle, joined ChevronTexaco as GM of public affairs, where he oversees all corporate, external, and internal communications.
