Kodak is establishing a new organizational structure to take effect on January 1, 2015, with five business divisions: Print Systems; Enterprise Inkjet Systems; Micro 3D Printing and Packaging; Software and Solutions; and Consumer and Film.
“Kodak has an extraordinary product and service portfolio, groundbreaking scientific and engineering expertise, and a world-famous and highly trusted brand,” said Jeff Clarke, Kodak Chief Executive Officer. “We now have the right organizational structure for deploying those strengths to drive growth.”
The Print Systems division is to be led by Brad Kruchten, focusing on graphic arts and commercial print customers with printing plates, computer to plate (CTP) imaging, electrophotographic press technology, OEM toner and all equipment services.
Enterprise Inkjet Systems is to be led by Philip Cullimore, focusing on existing inkjet technologies like the Prosper and Versamark, as well as ink OEM solutions.
Micro 3D Printing and Packaging is to be led (on an interim basis) by Philip Cullimore, focusing on packaging customers and display OEM partners with products such as Flexcel NX systems, legacy packaging solutions and touch sensor films. The Software and Solutions division is to be led by Eric-Yves Mahe and the Consumer and Film division is to be led by Steven Overman, who is also Kodak’s Chief Marketing Officer.
Kodak is also combining its current four regional sales organizations into two: Europe, United States and Canada, Australia and New Zealand (EUCAN) and Asia, Latin America, Middle East and Africa (ALMA). These will be led by John O’Grady, Managing Director, EUCAN, and Lois Lebegue, Managing Director, ALMA.
In addition to CEO Jeff Clarke, the company has also altered its executive structure to reduce overlap with the following leaders: John McMullen, Chief Financial Officer and Executive Vice President; Mark Green, Chief Human Resources Officer and Senior Vice President; Steven Overman, Chief Marketing Officer and Senior Vice President; Patrick Sheller, General Counsel, Secretary and Chief Administrative Officer and Senior Vice President; Terry Taber, Chief Technical Officer and Senior Vice President; and Kim VanGelder, Chief Information Officer and Vice President.
