Software vendor, Adobe, has appointed Cynthia Stoddard as its new senior vice-president and chief information officer in a move to strengthen its Cloud business.

The appointment will become effective on June 13 and will see Stoddard lead the strategy, development and deployment of a scalable technology and business infrastructure to support the vendor’s Cloud platform business.
