Kodak selects tech industry veteran as CFO

Rochester Business Journal
May 22, 2014

Eastman Kodak Co. has selected its new chief financial officer.

John McMullen was named CFO and executive vice president effective June 15. The board of directors has elected McMullen, 55, a corporate officer, and he will become a member of the company’s executive council, Kodak (NYSE: KODK), said Thursday.

McMullen held a series of senior financial roles during a 32‐year career with Hewlett-Packard Co. and predecessor companies, Compaq Computer Corp. and Digital Equipment Corp. His positions included senior vice president of finance and corporate treasurer of HP.

“John is an accomplished executive, recognized for his substantial financial and strategic expertise and deep knowledge of the commercial imaging and printing industries,” said Kodak CEO Jeffrey Clarke.

“Having worked for many years with John in dynamic and complex situations, I know how effective he is at cutting through challenges and achieving excellent outcomes—and doing so at high speed,” Clarke added.

Clarke also worked at HP and DEC.

McMullen succeeds Rebecca Roof who has served since September 2012 as interim chief financial officer while remaining a managing director of AlixPartners LLP, which advised Kodak during its Chapter 11 reorganization.
