ROCHESTER, N.Y., February 8-Kodak's Graphic Communications Group (GCG) today announced a new leadership team for its operations in Israel. Kodak also announced that Michael Rolant, General Manager of GCG Israel has decided to leave the company on March 31, 2006. Located in Herzelia, Kodak GCG Israel develops and manufactures computer to plate (CTP) equipment, digital front ends and software applications for the graphic communications industry, including the commercial, packaging, newspaper, in-plant and print on demand segments of the market. The new organization will be led by: - Hezy Rotman, General Manager, will lead Output Devices; - Ronen Cohen, General Manager, will lead Print On Demand Systems; - Dov Kalinski, General Manager, will lead Input Products; - Avi Waldman, Vice President of Operations & Infrastructure, will lead operations. The new leadership team will report to Judi Hess, General Manager and Vice President, Workflow and Prepress Equipment, GCG. Rolant will work closely with the new leadership team over the next two months for a seamless transition of Kodak GCG Israel's business. "Since 1995, Michael has played an important role in the success of our Israeli operations. We thank him for his contribution over many years, we respect his decision to move in a different career direction, and we wish him well in his future endeavors," said Hess. Rolant began his career at Creo Inc. in 1995. In 2000, he was named president of Creo Israel, which focused on R&D and manufacturing. When Kodak completed its acquisition of Creo in June 2005, Rolant was named general manager of the GCG's operations in Israel. "Kodak's acquisition of Creo created significant value for the graphic communications industry," said Rolant. "I am proud to have worked with the most creative and talented people in our industry and I leave a strong and dedicated management team in place." "Kodak continues to show great momentum in providing graphic communications companies with advanced solutions to help them grow their business. We plan to continue to develop and commercialize breakthrough products and services, under the strength of our new leadership organization," said Hess.
