Kodak Names Clarke CEO
Kodak’s parent company, Eastman Kodak, has elected Jeffrey J. Clarke CEO, the company announced Wednesday.
The hire comes as Kodak has emerged from bankruptcy. He replaces Antonio Perez.
“Jeff is the right person to lead Kodak forward. His combination of strengths and experience in technology, transformation, finance, operations, and international business is precisely what we set out to find in the next leader of Kodak. His past leadership positions have included businesses selling hardware, software and services, and printing – with B2B customers as well as consumers,” James V. Continenza, chairman of the board, said in a statement.
“The Board evaluated many highly qualified and talented people during the search, but it was clear to all of us that Jeff was the one we wanted. We feel extremely confident about Kodak’s prospects with Jeff at the helm.”
