Lacerte will remain with the company as chief financial officer and as a board member. Heeger had served as president and CEO of Fotiva Inc., a photography software company, before it was acquired by Adobe in 2001. While at Adobe, Heeger oversaw the launch of the Adobe Creative Suite, as well as other flagship products such as Adobe Illustrator CS, and Adobe InDesign CS. Prior to that, he spent several years at Intuit, where he was CFO and later senior vice president and general manager of Intuit's small business division.
