Mark Garrett
Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer at Adobe

Back

Mark believes that bold decision-making and transparency are critical to transforming and growing a company. Under his guidance, Adobe has completed the fastest transition to a cloud-based subscription model among companies in the software industry. A “people’s CFO” with an MBA in organizational behavior, Mark is just as comfortable talking about numbers as he is about leading and developing teams. In 2015, the Silicon Valley Business Journal named him “Public Company CFO of the Year.” In 2017, Institutional Investor magazine ranked him No. 1 in the Best Software CFO category by sell-side analysts.

While in college, Mark hoped to become a veterinarian, but quickly found out that accounting, not organic chemistry, was the right fit for him.

If Mark were not at Adobe, he would be an architect designing buildings.
