Adobe has announced the appointment of Scott Belsky as chief product officer and executive vice president, Creative . In this new role, Belsky will lead product management and engineering for Creative products and services, Adobe Spark and Behance.

Belsky previously served as Adobe’s vice president of products, leading the Creative Cloud mobile product strategy.

He joined the company in 2012 through the acquisition of Behance, a platform he co-founded in 2006. Throughout his career, Belsky has served as an advisor and investor to several organizations that sit at the intersection of technology and design, including Pinterest, Uber and Periscope – now part of Twitter.

Prior to Adobe, Belsky was a venture investor at Benchmark. He serves on the advisory board of Cornell University’s Entrepreneurship Program, is a member of the board of trustees for the Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, and serves on the boards of Prefer, a referral network for independent professionals, and Cheddar, a next-generation live and on-demand video news network.
