Set to join Apple’s executive team Lynch recently resigned from Adobe to pursue better opportunities. Adobe in its recent Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) filing wrote that Kevin Lynch resigned from his Executive Vice President, Chief Technology Officer post with effect from March 22, 2013 to pursue other good opportunities.

Lynch will be reporting to Bob Mansfield, who is Apple’s senior vice president of technologies. Lynch joined Adobe in 2005 and played a key role in the development of the Dreamweaver. He joined Apple following the company’s acquisition of Macromedia Company in the same year.

Lynch has been in limelight for his issues with Apple earlier. He raised his voice against Apple’s decision of not allowing Adobe’s Flash program to run on iOS systems in 2010. Apple had earlier refused to allow Adobe Flash on its mobile devices. This decision was taken by Steve Jobs as the company felt that Adobe Flash would result in technology issues with iOS.

Lynch dismissed Steve’s explanations saying that the platform was not at all an issue rather he predicted that Apple in future would allow Flash on all iOS devices as result of pressure from its other competitors.

No comments have been received from Apple about this development.
