Kevin Lynch of Adobe pursuing new opportunities at Apple


Kevin Lynch, Adobe senior technological director will leave the company this Friday to take the position of Vice-president of Technologies at Apple. He will operate under senior VP Bob Mansfield’s guidance. Lynch will coordinate the software and hardware teams and direct Apple’s wireless, semiconductor and material units.

Lynch joined Adobe in 2005 when the company acquired Macromedia and Flash. He has worked on cloud technology, social systems and multi-display technology. When Apple dismissed Flash in iOS, he became something of a spokesperson on behalf on Adobe and the longtime standard which generated an exchange of “open letters” with the late Steve Jobs.

Adobe wish Lynch all the best and don’t plan to hunt talent for the vacant position.
