HP CEO to Oracle: Here’s Looking at You, Kid–Suntory Time!

The process servers Oracle’s hired to track down former SAP Chief Léo Apotheker can take a few days off. Apotheker, who’s just begun his new gig as CEO of Hewlett-Packard, is far beyond their 100-mile reach.

He’s in Japan. Or at least he was a few days ago, when he gave an interview to Nikkei BP while in Tokyo. Of course that doesn’t mean he’s still there now–unless he’s shooting whisky ads on the side or has struck up an unlikely friendship with a neglected newlywed.

HP continues to refuse to divulge his location and, to be fair, that’s company policy and were you to put the same question to Oracle about one of its execs you’d likely get a similar answer. Said an HP spokesperson, “We don’t discuss the schedules or specific whereabouts of our executives.”
