Gone in a flash: Adobe's Chief Technology Officer joining Apple
Adobe's Chief Technology Officer is leaving the company to join Apple. Adobe announced the news in an SEC filing earlier today. Chief Technology Officer Kevin Lynch tendered his resignation at the company yesterday, Adobe confirmed to AllThingsD:
"Kevin Lynch, Adobe CTO, is leaving the company effective March 22 to take a position at Apple," an Adobe spokesperson told AllThingsD. "We will not be replacing the CTO position; responsibility for technology development lies with our business unit heads under the leadership of Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen. Bryan Lamkin, who has recently returned to Adobe, will assume responsibilities for cross company research and technology initiatives as well as Corporate Development. We wish Kevin well in this new chapter of his career."
Apple confirmed the hire to AllThingsD, noting that Lynch will be the Vice President of Technology at the company, reporting to Bob Mansfield, where he'll work with coordinating the hardware and software teams. Lynch was one of Adobe's biggest evangelists for Flash, which Apple notoriously blocked from working on iOS.
