The chief technology officer at Adobe, Kevin Lynch, has resigned. This news of his resignation came today from a SEC filing. He will cease to hold office on March 22. As far as his former position at Adobe is concerned, the company says that it is not finding a replacement at this point in time. Rather the duties and responsibilities of CTO are being assigned to Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen and SVP Bryan Lamkin.
It is now known as of now what exactly will be Kevin’s position at Apple. The Cupertino company itself is yet to comment on Kevin’s hiring. Kevin himself is also yet to comment on the move he’s making from Adobe to Apple. Lynch has previously criticized Apple for not supporting Flash on its iOS devices, but I guess that won’t trouble him anymore since Flash on mobile devices has been done away with. Lynch joined Adobe when the company acquired Macromedia, Inc., in 2005. He worked his way up the ranks and eventually became CTO. We wish him all the best for the journey that lies ahead at Apple.
