Adobe has appointed Simon Dale as Managing Director (MD) of Southeast Asia (SEA) business operations. Simon will be responsible for leading the company’s accelerated growth and delivering exceptional customer experiences across its Digital Experience (DX) and Digital Media for Enterprise (DME) business units.
Dale has over three decades of professional experience in the technology sector, and has previously held senior roles at business software company MapR and a 16-year tenure at SAP and scaled new businesses across the region.
According to Dale, Southeast Asia is currently feeling the full effects of digital disruption.

“This is especially crucial when operating within a competitive economy as we are now. With its expertise and deep knowledge in this area, Adobe is well-placed to act as a trusted partner to Southeast Asian brands and businesses by providing all the tools needed to future-proof the delivery of exceptional digital experiences,” said Dale.
“I am excited to be working closely with Adobe’s customers and partners on this journey,” he added.
