As a Senior Program Manager in Adobe System’s Digital Media BU, Dirk is a member of the Program Management Office there, contributing to Adobe’s Creative Cloud business platform development. With more than 20 years of experience in global program management, Dirk contributes to Adobe’s strategic business planning and innovative programs. Through analysis of technologies, infrastructure, and regulatory environments, he helps Adobe’s key products meet demanding requirements, and achieving readiness for successful international market entries.
For a total of four years, Dirk worked at Adobe’s China R&D and Sales Offices in Beijing. Based on that experience, he contributed to Adobe’s first Creative Cloud products and making them available to customers in China. Dirk’s first contact with Egret dates back to those years, when he connected with key contributors at Egret.
Those were also the years, when China went through the period of first exposure to early cryptocoins and blockchain developments. Now back in the US, Dirk remains an advisor-investor in future-oriented, innovative blockchain developments, be they based in China or elsewhere.
He is a co-founder of Egretia Blockchain Lab and continues a long and successful collaboration with Peter Huang, that started in Adobe’s Beijing offices.
