Kodak Alaris names Marc Jourlait as CEO

Kodak Alaris has appointed Marc Jourlait as chief executive officer, effective 1 January 2017. 

Interim CEO Jeff Goodman will return to his role as chief operating officer (COO) to support Jourlait during the next few months. Jourlait’s arrival and Goodman’s transition will position Kodak Alaris in a future-facing direction to best serve its customers.

“Jourlait is an inspirational leader with a track record of driving sustainable and profitable growth for international technology companies,” said Mark Elliott, chairman of the Board of Kodak Alaris. “I am thrilled that he will join us as CEO as his experience spans both consumer and enterprise oriented companies. In his most recent role, Jourlait was the deputy CEO of Navico – the global leader in marine electronics for recreational and commercial use. 

“Previously, Jourlait held leadership roles with Apple, HP, Seagate, Technicolor and Bose. Marc worked and lived in the United States, Europe and Asia to drive many successes for the global, high-growth businesses that he led.”

“It is an honour and privilege to join and lead Kodak Alaris,” said Jourlait. “We have all of the necessary ingredients to successfully deliver on our plans: an iconic brand heritage, cool technology and innovative portfolio, new growth initiatives, and dedicated and passionate employees around the world. I cannot wait to get started at Kodak Alaris.” 

Jourlait will be based in Rochester, New York.
