Nitro PDF Software Appoints World-Recognized PDF Authority, Lonn Lorenz, as Director of Product Management

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - January 12, 2010) - Nitro PDF Software, the company that revolutionized the PDF software space with the release of its award-winning Nitro PDF Professional, today announced the appointment of Lonn Lorenz as Director of Product Management. Lorenz joins Nitro from Adobe Systems, where his last role was Senior Product Manager for Scene7.

A globally-recognized authority on PDF, Lorenz brings more than two decades of industry experience, and has served as an expert speaker and panelist at leading industry forums including CeBIT, Seybold, and Macworld.

"Lonn's experience with the PDF format and within the industry, coupled with his strategic vision and ability to deliver true, market-led product design, is unparalleled," said Nitro CEO, Sam Chandler. "We've undertaken a substantial expansion of our product range in the past year, and with millions of Nitro users worldwide, we're thrilled to have someone of Lonn's caliber to manage our product portfolio."

Heavily involved with PDF since its inception, Lorenz was instrumental at Adobe in the development of Adobe Acrobat -- overseeing all creative, print, and prepress feature development since Version 6, as well as the bifurcation into Professional and Standard editions. During his tenure as Senior Product Manager of Creative Suite Design Premium, Lorenz managed PDF feature integration across all products, and was the driving force behind the incorporation of Acrobat into Adobe's Creative Suite.

"I'm excited to again focus my attention on PDF as a format, and continue Adobe founder John Warnock's vision for it as a publishing, collaboration, and document-delivery medium," said Lorenz. "Nitro has an established track record of developing high-quality, business-oriented PDF solutions, and it's exciting to join such a dynamic player in this market."
