Kodak Alaris Hires New CEO from Motorola Mobility

Posted by on Monday February 17, 2014 | Business

Kodak Alaris, the personal and document imaging company now owned by the UK Pension Plan (KPP), named Ralf Gerbershagen its new Chief Executive Officer on Friday. Gerbershagen was previously at Motorola Mobility, currently part of Google, where he had held positions as Managing Director Motorola Germany GmbH and VP & General Manager Motorola Mobility Europe and had responsibility for several product portfolios such as Network Infrastructure equipment, Smartphones and Accessories. Gerbershagen’s appointment takes effect April 1, 2014.

Eastman Kodak announced in April 2013 that it was transferring its Personalized Imaging and Document Imaging businesses to its UK Kodak Pension Plan (KPP). The transfer settled the $2.8 billion that KPP claimed against Eastman Kodak during the former film giant’s bankruptcy proceedings. In September, the deal was completed and the company announced its new name, Kodak Alaris.

Kodak Alaris’s Personalized Imaging business includes the manufacture and sale of film products and photographic paper, as well as its business in retail photo kiosks and dry lab systems, and digital souvenir photography services at theme parks, resorts and other destinations.

Gerbershagen will be based in the UK and report to Steven Ross, Interim Chairman of the Board of Kodak Alaris.
