Greg Running has been promoted to the position of Canadian National Sales Manager for Kodak, which the company describes as a move illustrating its commitment to the graphic arts market in Canada.
“Canada continues to be a significant market for Kodak with tremendous growth potential,” stated John O’Grady, Managing Director for the U.S. & Canada Region, and Vice President of Eastman Kodak Company. “Greg’s experience will provide a clear focus on the unique needs and requirements of the Canadian printing industry and unifies our sales team to effectively represent Kodak’s broad portfolio of digital printing products.”
Running has more than 20 years of experience in the graphic arts industry and most recently served as a Kodak Sales Specialist, selling workflow, prepress and digital printing solutions throughout Canada. He is to manage Kodak’s Canadian commercial sales team of regionally based account managers, sales specialists and technical project leads, working in both a direct and channel/dealer-based environment.
“Kodak is very focused on Canada as a key market and I look forward to the opportunity to lead our national and regional sales teams,” said Running, who will help reorganize Kodak’s presence in the country, which is to be categorized by East, Ontario, and West regions. Each region will be equipped with an account manager and sales specialist, supported by two national technical product leads.
“My entire career in printing sales has been devoted to the Canadian market,” continued Running, “and I’ll be able to apply that knowledge to ensure Kodak is focused on what our customers require to grow their business and be successful.”
