Lauren Lung Named VP/GM of Kodak's Motion Picture Business in the Americas
LOS ANGELES, April 21, 2010 -- Lauren Lung has been named vice president and general manager of Kodak's Entertainment Imaging Division in North and South America. Prior to this role, Lung was VP of Corporate Business Development and Marketing Operations, having global responsibility for the company's business development partnerships and marketing operations.
Lung assumes the responsibilities formerly held by Peter Boyce, who has taken the role of general manager for the division's Europe, Africa and Middle East Region. Her appointment is effective immediately. She will report directly to Kimberly Snyder, president of Entertainment Imaging and vice president of Eastman Kodak Company. Lung will split her time between the division's Hollywood headquarters and its New York City office.
"Lauren is a proven and effective leader who brings a broad range of management experience in operations, sales, marketing and business development to her new role," says Snyder. "Her ability to listen to customers will guide our ongoing innovations that have taken film technology to new levels."
Lung, 48, is an alumnus of New York University, with bachelor's and master's degrees from New York University's Stern School of Business. Lung spent 18 years of her career at Hewlett Packard in a variety of sales, marketing and operations positions with progressively greater responsibility. She joined Kodak in 2005 as director of Professional Services for the company's Graphic Communications Group.
"I am looking forward to working with the creative community in the motion picture and television industries," Lung says. "We continue to be driven by the filmmakers who want to bring their visions to the screen in more powerful and compelling ways. I look forward to working hand-in-hand with them and our partners in the industry to deliver the expertise, technology, products and solutions they have come to expect from Kodak."
