By CBR Staff Writer

Adobe Systems’ chief technology officer, Kevin Lynch, has joined Apple as a vice president of technology and will report to senior vice president, Bob Mansfield.

Adobe said in its filings with the US Securities and Exchange Commission: "On March 18, 2013, Kevin Lynch resigned from his position as executive vice president, chief technology officer, of Adobe Systems Incorporated, effective March 22, 2013, to pursue other opportunities."

Lynch joined Adobe in 2005 as part of the company’s acquisition of Macromedia, and was responsible for technology associated with cloud, social computing and multi-screen efforts.

Apple’s technology team includes wireless teams from across the company as well as the semiconductor teams responsible for chips.

"Kevin was previously CTO at Adobe, where he was shaping Adobe’s long-term technology vision across the company," said a spokesperson for Apple.

Currently, Adobe has no plans to hire a new chief technology officer.
