Adobe appoints Chris Skelton as A/NZ managing director

Regional boss replaces Paul Robson who was promoted last month

It has taken Adobe a mere month to find a new managing director, with the vendor naming Chris Skelton as the new head of its Australia and New Zealand (A/NZ) business.

He takes the reins after two years as Adobe’s head of digital media across A/NZ, South East Asia, and Korea.

Skelton replaces Paul Robson who was promoted to Asia-Pacific president last month following the departure of 17-year company veteran, Craig Tegel.

Robson, who promoted Skelton to the new role, said, “He has made a significant impact over the past two years and I look forward to working with him to continue to grow Adobe’s operation in A/NZ.”

Before arriving at Adobe in 2012, Skelton was A/NZ regional director for hardware and software reseller, Insight, for three years.

He also served as head of alliances for Unisys' APAC and SAP’s United Kingdom operations, before which he oversaw Cisco Systems’ European, Middle Eastern, and African (EMEA) teams.

His career of more than 20 years commenced at Hewlett-Packard where he held the role of account manager from 1994 until 1999.

In Pictures: Houston, we have a bug - 9 famous software glitches in space

There’s never a good time to run into software bugs, but some times are worse than others - like during a mission to space. Spacecraft of all shapes and sizes rely heavily on software to complete their objectives. But those missions can be quickly ended by the simplest of human errors when writing code. The omission of an overbar here or overflow error checking code there can mean the difference between success or failure, not to mention the loss of hundreds of millions of dollars, years of work and, on manned missions, human life. Use the arrows above to read about 9 examples that show that, despite the care with which these systems are built, bugs have occurred in spacecraft software since we started to fling rockets into space - and will, no doubt, continue to crop up.
