CNBC reports that Adobe chief technology officer Kevin Lynch is heading to Apple. Whoa! What does this mean? Especially given that Lynch has publicly trashed Apple in the past.
According to financial documents filed today with the Securities Exchange Commission, we know for sure that Lynch is leaving Adobe:
Item 5.02. Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.
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.
Apple has confirmed that Lynch is coming on board to work under Bob Mansfield as VP of technology.
