Adobe combines PC and mobile groups

The company continues to consolidate business units following its 2005 acquisition of Macromedia.

Adobe Systems, maker of Photoshop and Acrobat software, is folding the company's mobile group into its platform operations as a way to create one platform for computers, handsets, and other consumer devices.

The move coincides with the departure of Al Ramadan, who was in charge of Adobe's mobile unit. Ramadan spent nearly 10 years at Adobe and Macromedia, Adobe said in a press release.

The company is still trying to consolidate business units from its 2005 acquisition of Macromedia.

Gary Kovacs, vice president of product management and marketing for Adobe, was promoted to general manager of the new combined business unit and will take over for Ramadan. Kovacs will report to Kevin Lynch, the company's chief technology officer.
