039: Oracle Marketing Cloud Sr. Director of Corporate Marketing Nick Bell on CMOs Serving Two Masters


Nick Bell (@nbell94102) is a results-driven Hightech Marketing Executive with proven track record developing award-winning marketing programs and brand strategies. With broad-based experience with both agency and corporate environments, he joined Oracle 3 years ago when it formed the Oracle Marketing Cloud (@OracleMktgCloud). His southern roots and Journalism background help his marketing career today.


Oracle (@oracle) is the second largest software maker in the world after Microsoft. It leverages innovation to enable its 400,000+ customers in over 145 countries to deliver the best experience to their own customers by simplifying IT. Last year, Forbes listed Oracle’s brand as more valuable than AT&T, Walmart, Verizon, and Budweiser. With 38.3 billion dollars in brand revenue, Oracle sells more than Ralph Lauren, Visa, EBay, Gucci, and Rolex combined. Oracle is also one of the major sponsors of the IMA.


“The pure marketer frankly didn’t come from a data, IT, or really even an analytical background and that’s something you have to be able to do today or you won’t make it in marketing.” – Nick Bell
