Adobe has named John Landwehr public sector chief technology officer, where he will spearhead the company’s initiatives to help the government ecosystem digitize workflows and services.

This is Adobe’s first ever public sector chief technology officer.

Landwehr will help the government better digitize workflows and services by creating solutions that encompass traditional desktop, mobile and server software as well as new managed service offerings delivered as FedRAMP authorized cloud services, the company said in a release.
