Kodak Completes Creo Acquisition
Judi Hess will lead Workflow & Prepress strategic product group.
The latter company's business is now part of the Graphic Solutions & Services operating unit within Kodak's Graphic Communications Group (GCG). Creo's former president, Judi Hess, has joined Kodak and will lead the Workflow & Prepress strategic product group as general manager and vice president. Hess will remain based in Vancouver, which will serve as GCG's center for prepress and workflow operations.
"The addition of a complementary portfolio of leading computer-to-plate equipment, workflow software, prepress, proofing, digital plates, scanning and image-capture solutions, in addition to the highly talented Creo team, will make Kodak a stronger partner for our customers," says James Langley, GCG president and Kodak senior vice president.
In addition, to Hess, several other Creo managers are joining Kodak, including: Dan Gelbart, as senior research fellow and special advisor to Langley; Israel Sandler, as managing director of Europe, Africa, and Middle East region; and Garron Helman, as managing director of Greater Asia region.
