Eastman Kodak is announcing a change in the corporate ranks. The company says that John O’Grady has been named President for the Print Systems Division effective April 24.

O’Grady is currently President of the Consumer and Film Division and he is the former General Manager of World Wide Sales for Print Systems.

He will replace Brad Kruchten, who is retiring after 36 years with Kodak. CEO Jeff Clarke said that Kruchten “has been an important part of our company for many years, and I thank him for his tremendous commitment to Kodak and outstanding accomplishments. John O’Grady is very well positioned to lead the Print Systems Division. His industry experience is unparalleled.”

Kruchten’s wife, Dolores Kruchten, is President of Kodak’s Eastman Business Park Division.

Clarke will lead the Consumer and Film Division on an interim basis until a successor is appointed.
