Rochester, NY—Kodak established a new organizational structure to make it “faster moving, more competitive and more entrepreneurial.” Kodak now has five market-focused business divisions: Print Systems; Enterprise Inkjet Systems; Micro 3D Printing and Packaging; Software and Solutions; and Consumer and Film. They are each end-to-end operating units with responsibility and accountability for portfolio, product design, engineering, services, sales, purchasing and supply chain.

“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’s CEO. “We now have the right organizational structure for deploying those strengths to drive growth. We designed this structure to sharpen our focus on performance, predictability and accountability for business results.”

Here is a brief outline of Kodak’s operating divisions, their markets and their leaders.

Print Systems: Led by Brad Kruchten, president, Print Systems, and senior vice president, Kodak, this division serves graphic arts and commercial print customers with printing plates, computer-to-plate imaging solutions, electrophotographic printing solutions, OEM toner and equipment services.

Enterprise Inkjet Systems: Philip Cullimore, president, Enterprise Inkjet Systems, and senior vice president, Kodak, leads this division, which serves inkjet printing customers with Kodak Prosper systems, VersaMark systems; Print on Demand Solutions; and ink OEM solutions.

Micro 3D Printing and Packaging: Philip Cullimore also leads this group on an interim basis as president. It serves packaging customers and display OEM partners with products such as Kodak Flexcel NX systems and plates, legacy packaging solutions and touch-sensor films.

Software and Solutions: Eric-Yves Mahe, president, Software and Solutions, and senior vice president, Kodak, heads this unit, which includes Kodak Technology Solutions, Kodak’s go-to-market engine to prioritize and monetize Kodak innovations in partnership with Kodak Research Labs; Kodak Unified Workflow Solutions; Brand Protection Solutions; Kodak Services for Business; and Design 2 Launch solutions to manage and coordinate use of brand assets.

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). They are led by John O’Grady, managing director, EUCAN, and vice president, Kodak; and Lois Lebegue, managing director, ALMA, and vice president, Kodak.
