Mark Garrett, a veteran software executive, has been named chief financial officer of Adobe Systems ( ADBE), the company said late Tuesday.

Most recently, Garrett served as senior vice president and chief financial officer of EMC's ( EMC) software group.

He had been CFO of Documentum until the content management company was acquired by the storage vendor in 2004.

Adobe's previous CFO, Randy Furr, resigned in November after six months on the job.

"Furr's resignation is unrelated to his work performed at Adobe, and no issues have been raised regarding the integrity of the company's financial statements," Adobe said at the time.

Garrett starts his new job on Feb. 1. and will report to CEO Bruce Chizen.

Shares of Adobe were up 28 cents to $37.80 after hours.
