Sohaib Abbasi, A Former SVP of Oracle from Pakistan

Yes, he is an Informatica guy now, but he spent 20 years at Oracle, and led Oracle Tools and Oracle Education with a bang. Joined Oracle when it had US 4MILLION Dollars revenue annually, and when he left Oracle, annual revenues of Oracle was US $9.5 billion.

It was gut-wrenching for me to learn that he came back to Pakistan to contribute to the education, but due to red tape and lack of transparency he went back. Understandably, that is the biggest reason why Pakistan's education system is not something to write home about.

Here is a fine wikipedia article about the great Sohaib Abbasi, with some very fine external links.

I came to know about him while reading this article.
