Adobe Systems’ CTO Kevin Lynch is leaving the company at the end of this week to take up a job at consumer tech giant Apple, as its vice-president of technologies.

Lynch will report to Apple’s senior vice-president Bob Mansfield, CNET reported.

Adobe said it won’t replace Lynch but will instead assign the CTO’s responsibilities to Adobe’s CEO Shantanu Narayen and senior vice-president Bryan Lamkin.

News of Lynch’s resignation – but not his new job – came with Adobe’s SEC 8-K filing with its first-quarter financial results.

“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,” Adobe said.

According to CNET, CNBC revealed Lynch’s move to Apple.

Yesterday, Adobe reported US$1.008bn in revenues for the last quarter, and profits of US$65.1m.

CFO Mark Garrett said Adobe’s Creative Cloud suite gained 153,000 subscribers in the last three months and 2m people have tried the free download.
