The CFO of

Adobe Systems

(ADBE) - Get Report

has resigned his position after just five months on the job.

The Thursday press release announcing Randy Furr's departure gave no reason for the sudden move, but a spokeswoman for the company said he left "for personal reasons."

The company took some pains to indicate that Furr is not leaving a scandal behind. "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," the announcement said.

Adobe makes a number of popular software applications, including PhotoShop and Acrobat.

Furr's predecessor, Murray Demo, left in December of last year "to spend more time with his family." He had been with the company for 10 years. Furr joined the company in May 2006.

In recent after-hours trading, shares were off 42 cents, or about 1%, to $39.27.
