Kodak Names Oviedo GM for Worldwide Sales and Customer Operations


Green, Korizno, and O’Grady Named Regional Managing Directors

ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- Eastman Kodak Company has named Gustavo Oviedo as General Manager, Worldwide Sales and Customer Operations. In that role he oversees worldwide sales and customer support for the company’s Consumer Digital Imaging and Graphic Communications Groups. Oviedo is a Kodak vice president.

Oviedo previously was Managing Director for Kodak’s Asia Pacific Region and Managing Director for the Graphic Communications Group for that region. He held the latter role since 2006, when Kodak acquired Kodak Polychrome Graphics (KPG).

“We have consolidated our sales and customer operations for Kodak’s digital businesses into one organization that presents a single face to the customer, maximizing our value proposition to customers,” said Philip J. Faraci, Kodak President and Chief Operating Officer. “Gustavo’s international career spans more than 25 years working in South America, Asia, Europe and North America, and he brings fluency in several languages to his interactions with our customers.”

Before joining Kodak, Oviedo, who will report to Faraci, worked for Schneider Electric in increasingly responsible positions managing logistics, sales and marketing, business development, and mergers and acquisitions. He holds a business degree from the University of Salvador in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

“I am looking forward to meeting our customers worldwide, as well as the opportunity to introduce others to the broad range of solutions offered by Kodak for consumer and commercial applications,” said Oviedo.

At the same time, Kodak announces three regional managing directors for Consumer and Commercial Sales and Customer Operations. All will report to Oviedo.

* Stephen Green, Asia Pacific.
* Michael Korizno, Americas.
* John O’Grady, Europe, Africa and Middle East.

Green was previously Asia Pacific Region manager and vice president for Prepress Solutions in Kodak’s Graphic Communications Group (GCG).

Green is a graduate of Bolton Technical College in the U.K., holds a graduate management diploma from the Australian Graduate School of Management at the University of New South Wales, and an M.B.A. from the Macquarie Graduate School of Management.

Korizno, a Kodak vice president, was previously Americas Region general manager for Kodak’s Consumer Digital Imaging and Film, Photofinishing and Entertainment Groups. He held a variety of sales and marketing management positions since joining Kodak in 1997, and previously was a vice president of sales and marketing for Sony.
