Eastman Kodak Company announced that Charles S. Brown Jr., currently the director of Global Manufacturing & Logistics, has been promoted to Chief Administrative Officer (CAO), reporting to chairman and CEO Daniel A. Carp.

As CAO, Mr. Brown will be responsible for such corporate functions as Health, Safety & Environment, Communications & Public Affairs, Human Resources, Corporate Security, Information Security, and the Legal departments. He also will oversee the company's international regions, which had been the responsibility of Henri D. Petit, who announced on April 13 his plans to retire effective June 1. Kodak's Global Diversity Office, which previously reported to the CAO, now will report to Mr. Carp.

Mr. Brown, a senior vice president of the company, succeeds Michael P. Morley, who will retire on June 1, 2004 after 40 years of service with the company. Mr. Morley, who began his career with Kodak in the Film Testing Division in 1964, is an executive vice president of the company.

"As our senior manufacturing executive, Charlie Brown brings to his new position years of experience managing the global implications of business decisions," Mr. Carp said in a written statement "He understands public affairs, legal issues, human resources, communications, marketing and the importance of balancing the interests of all of our constituents. He is the perfect choice for a position that Mike Morley so ably filled.

"On a personal note, I can only describe today's announcement as bittersweet," Mr. Carp said. "Mike has been a trusted colleague and adviser to me in these exciting and challenging times, and I will miss his wise counsel and our close working relationship. But he has decided that the time has come to enjoy a retirement that he has thoroughly earned, and on behalf of everyone at Kodak, I wish Mike and his family all the best in his new life."

In tandem with this change, Kodak also announced the following appointments:

  • Daniel T. Meek, currently director of the Kodak Operating System, will succeed Mr. Brown as director, Global Manufacturing & Logistics, reporting to president and CEO Antonio M. Perez. Mr. Meek also was elected a senior vice president of the company by the board of directors, effective immediately.

  • Charles C. Barrentine, currently manager of Kodak Rochester Operations (KOS) (Rochester, NY, U.S.) and a corporate vice president, will succeed Mr. Meek as director, KOS, reporting to Mr. Perez.

  • Mary Burkhardt, currently general manager, Global Sites, and a corporate vice president, will succeed Mr. Barrentine and will report to Mr. Meek. A successor to Ms. Burkhardt will be named at a later date.
