Adobe has appointed Paul Robson (pictured) as president of the company’s Asia Pacific operations, replacing Craig Tegel.
Tegel is leaving the company on 1 July after 17 years in the company, across markets such as Australia, Asia Pacific, Europe and Japan.
Meanwhile, Robson will report to Matt Thompson, executive vice president of Worldwide Field Operations. Robson begins in his role immediately.
He will continue to be based in Adobe’s Sydney headquarters, but will travel frequently to oversee Adobe’s operations in Australasia, Southeast Asia, Korea, India and Greater China.
“Craig will work to ensure a smooth transition for Paul, a dynamic leader with a strong track record of leading business transformation at both an operational and executive level. I’m confident our business in Asia Pacific will continue to thrive under his leadership,” said Thompson in a statement.
Robson joined Adobe in November 2012 as managing director for Australia and New Zealand. Since May 2013 Robson has led Adobe’s enterprise sales function across Australia and New Zealand, Southeast Asia and Korea.
Before joining Adobe, Robson was the vice president and general manager for HP’s Networking Division across Asia Pacific and Japan.
