Kodak Alaris has appointed Rick Costanzo President and General Manager of the company’s Information Management (IM) Division. He joined Kodak earlier this year to lead its global business – which delivers hardware, software and services in 27 countries and helps customers automate business processes and accelerate digital transformation.
Costanzo joined Kodak Alaris following a successful tenure at SAP, where he served as Executive Vice President for the Telecommunications Industry and Enterprise Mobility Solutions. In this role, he led SAP to a global leadership position in Telecommunications and transformed its Enterprise Mobility business into high-growth, cloud-platform services.
Prior to SAP, Costanzo was Executive Vice President of Global Sales and Regional Marketing for BlackBerry where he was responsible for overseeing go-to-market strategy and financial performance. Costanzo was BlackBerry’s first employee in Europe, where he established and ran commercial operations for five years before undertaking similar responsibilities in Latin America, achieving triple-digit revenue and margin growth in both markets prior to taking on worldwide responsibilities.
“As we continue to identify new opportunities to expand our business, Rick’s experience as a global leader and catalyst for change will be instrumental,” said Jeff Goodman, CEO of Kodak Alaris. “Rick is adept at driving organizations into new and uncharted territories and delivering high-growth returns. He has already made a significant impact on our business and I’m confident he’ll continue to challenge the status quo and deliver outstanding business results as he leads our Information Management business into the future.” Kodak Alaris is the worldwide market-share leader in high-volume production scanners.
