Former Microsoft VP Juha Christensen joins Macromedia mobile and devices division
Posted on 7-Jan-2004 07:29 | Tags Filed under: News



Macromedia announced the appointment of Juha Christensen as president of its mobile and devices business unit. Christensen recently served as corporate vice president of the mobile devices division at Microsoft Corporation, building Microsoft's franchise in the mobile industry. Before joining Microsoft, Christensen co-founded Symbian Ltd., a joint venture between Nokia, Ericsson, Sony-Ericsson, Matsushita, Samsung, Siemens, and Psion, whose cross-vendor operating system is emerging as an industry standard. Previously Juha worked at Psion Plc., bringing out some of the first PDAs in the industry.

Juha Christensen left Microsoft in November 2003, and since then joined Action Engine Corporation's Board of Directors.

"Juha Christensen brings entrepreneurial leadership, an amazing track record with mobility, and clear vision to our growing mobile and devices business," said Rob Burgess, chairman and CEO, Macromedia. "As president of this important division, Juha will help Macromedia lead the field in delivering innovative and practical solutions for this fast-growing industry."

"While researching for a start-up this fall, I came across Macromedia and was incredibly impressed with the people, the technologies, and the strength of the authoring community. I joined the company because Macromedia is uniquely positioned to deliver the experience layer that will 'light up' next generation mobile devices with exciting consumer services, applications, and content," said Juha Christensen, president of mobile and devices, Macromedia. "I'm excited about leading the development of a rich set of solutions that enable mobile services to be created by a wide range of individuals and companies. Our solutions will be aimed at anyone from the professional content developer to the individual who, without programming skills, wants to reach out and connect with people within their wireless communities."

The market for new devices has been fueled for the past few years by powerful hardware combined with new, consumer friendly software. Macromedia Flash players and content are already found in devices including mobile phones, PDAs, televisions, toys, and other consumer electronics devices. Popular new products using Macromedia Flash include the NTT DoCoMo 505i, 505iS, and the soon to be launched FOMA 900i series mobile phones, many Sony Clie PDAs, and the LeapFrog Leapster educational toy. Macromedia Flash uniquely supports many operating systems, embedded processors and data networks including existing 2.5G and 3G wireless systems. The ubiquitous Flash Player is increasingly playing a key role in new products to support rich, interactive content, improve embedded Internet browsers, and power entire user interfaces.
