Computer software giant Adobe has announced two new appointments for its team in Australia and New Zealand.
Scott Dawes has joined Adobe as enterprise sales director for the region and will be based in Melbourne.
He joins Adobe from SAP where he was the FSI executive general manager for Australia and New Zealand. Prior to SAP, Dawes worked at Oracle for more than 20 years, where he was responsible for its overall go-to-market strategy, sales and operations.
Steve O’Connell has also joined Adobe’s ANZ team as its government sales director, and will be based in Canberra.
