Celebrating Veterans

November 11, 2013

Amanda_Lettman-2Today, we honor the many men and women who’ve served and continue to serve to keep nations around the world safe.

At Adobe, we’re fortunate to have many veterans who dedicate their talent towards furthering the mission of our company. Amanda Lettmann, is one of them. She’s an Air Force veteran who’s been at Adobe for five years. She has held leadership positions in various groups within the company, and currently leads the business transformation and enablement unit.

“My team focuses on both transformation and continuous improvement in quote-to-cash technology, processes, and programs; and merger and acquisition integration,” Amanda said. “We help customers foster innovation and improve their business processes, and we enhance their sales effectiveness, capability, and productivity.”

As a certified Co-Active Professional Coach (CPC) and an Associate Certified Coach (ACC) with the International Coach Federation, Amanda also serves as an internal corporate coach and 360° Feedback performance-assessment facilitator at Adobe. Her 16 years of experience helping organizations improve comes in handy as she helps employees across the company develop their core strengths.

Amanda served on active duty in the Air Force from 1995 until 2000, leading the business operations of three divisions in Flight Operations. She was stationed in North Carolina at Air Combat Command, and in Maryland at the Andrews Joint Base. She also served in Operation Northern Watch in Turkey for the Combined Task Force.

Amanda has a particular interest in helping veterans succeed because of the time she spent in the military. She’s actively involved in organizing hackathons for veterans in the Bay Area in an effort to get them reconnected to the tech ecosystem. She also provides career coaching to returning veterans and regularly speaks at veteran conferences.

Adobe has over 11,000 employees around the world and hires across a broad spectrum of jobs. “We are always on the lookout for the best and the brightest,” Amanda said. “Adobe welcomes employment applications from veterans because they often bring with them valuable high-tech experience gained during their military service.”
