Andrew Mendelsohn

Senior Vice President of Oracle


I am a Senior Vice President in Oracle’s Server Technologies Division (ST). I've been in management at Oracle for the last twleve years and am currently responsible for the development and product management of Oracle's database product. Before my management days, I had lots of fun writing database kernel code at HP, Esvel, and Oracle for about ten years. My biggest accomplishment as a developer was writing the Oracle B-tree indexing code that is still in use to this day. I also did a lot of work in the Oracle SQL query processing engine and was the co-designer of Oracle's PLSQL stored procedure language.

I have a B.S.E. degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from Princeton University. I also did graduate work at MIT’s Laboratory for Computer Science.
