Adobe A/NZ has named Suzanne Steele as the No.1 design and production company’s new MD. In November she will replace incumbent Chris Skelton, who has decided to move on.

Steele joins Adobe from business data, analytical and marketing outfit Experian, where she has led A/NZ operations for the past two years. She has also worked in North America, the UK and Singapore, including in senior roles at Visa Europe, CACI London and Morgan Stanley.

Said Paul Robson, president of Adobe Asia-Pacific, to whom she will report: “Suzanne … is a customer-centric leader who understands the importance of client relationships to competitive differentiation and growth.”

Robson also paid tribute to the outgoing Chris Skelton, saying “Our A/NZ business has enjoyed significant growth and maturity under Chris’ leadership.”
