Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Eastman Kodak Company
Since joining the company in April 2003, Kodak’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Antonio M. Perez, has led the worldwide transformation of Kodak from a business based on film to one based primarily on digital technologies. In the past four years, Kodak introduced an array of disruptive new digital technologies and products for consumer and commercial applications that generated $6.6B in revenues in 2007. Those include consumer inkjet printers, CMOS sensors for digital cameras and mobile phones, dry labs and kiosks for printing at retail, as well as high-volume digital production presses and digital plates for commercial printing. The result is a new Kodak -- a company with 70 percent of revenue coming from digital products, higher gross margin commercial businesses accounting for 60 percent of sales, and a sustainable traditional business model.
Mr. Perez brings to the task his experience from a 25-year career at Hewlett-Packard Company, where he was a corporate vice president and a member of the company’s Executive Council. As President of H-P’s Consumer Business, Mr. Perez spearheaded the company’s efforts to build a business in digital imaging and electronic publishing, generating worldwide revenue of more than $16 billion.
Prior to that assignment, Mr. Perez served as President and CEO of H-P’s inkjet imaging business for five years. During that time, the installed base of H-P's inkjet printers grew from 17 million to 100 million worldwide, with revenue totaling more than $10 billion.
After H-P, Mr. Perez was President and CEO of Gemplus International, where he led the effort to take the company public. While at Gemplus, he transformed the company into the leading Smart Card-based solution provider in the fast-growing wireless and financial markets. In the first fiscal year, revenue at Gemplus grew 70 percent, from $700 million to $1.2 billion.
Mr. Perez is a member of the board of directors of Schering-Plough Corporation. Mr. Perez serves as Chair of the Diversity Best Practices CEO Diversity Initiative in 2008. He is a member of The Business Council as well as the Business Roundtable. He is also a member of the board of trustees of the George Eastman House.
A native of Spain, Mr. Perez studied electronic engineering, marketing and business in Spain and France.
