Happy Anniversary, Adobe!
This month we celebrate our 30th anniversary, a major milestone for technology companies. We are in very rare company of those who have thrived over such a period by both making the billion-dollar-a-year and billion-dollar-a-quarter milestones.
This success over the past 30 years is as a result of a relentless focus on innovation and customers first set by our founders, John Warnock and Chuck Geschke. Our impact on every form of communication has been profound – every magazine, every newspaper and web site, images that you encounter, video and application on mobile devices – chances are Adobe has played a major role in its creation.
As we continued to evolve our company, we decided that as all businesses moved mobile and online, we needed to expand our offerings beyond creation to management, measurement and monetization. Through organic innovation and targeted acquisitions, we’ve aligned our strategy around Digital Media – the creation of content, and Digital Marketing – the business of content. Our goal is to make every digital experience across every device a high-impact experience.
The single biggest reason this vision is possible is our employees around the world. We are a truly globally diverse company with over 10,000 employees. Our core values of genuine, innovative, exceptional and involved are what set Adobe apart.
Happy anniversary, Adobe, and here’s to many more great years to come!
