Kelly Olson, former acting director of technology transformation services at the General Services Administration, has joined Adobe (Nasdaq: ADBE) as head of industry strategy and marketing for public sector.
She will work to develop a go-to-market strategy and a digital experience messaging approach for the software company’s engagements in the government sector, Adobe said Tuesday.
Olson has gained experience in the areas of public-private partnerships, communications, strategy, marketing and technology during her 20-year career.
“I have experienced the power of what can be accomplished when government and industry come together to share experiences and build solutions together,” she said.
“I’ve had the unique opportunity to do this from multiple vantage points, most recently at GSA, working collaboratively across government to transform how agencies build, buy and share technology to improve user experiences.”
Her industry career includes vice president roles at ConnellyWorks and Atlantic Media. She also worked at Professional and Scientific Associates and at the American Council for Technology and Industry Advisory Council.
At GSA, Olson led the agency’s efforts to implement programs and policies related to information technology modernization, digital transformation and innovation.
