Kodak snaps up former Dell exec

Struggling iconic photography company Eastman Kodak has hired a new chief
financial officer and postponed a key investor meeting on its future strategy.

Frank Sklarsky will join Kodak on 30 October as executive vice president and
will become CFO on Nov. 13.

He was previously CFO of ConAgra Foods Inc. and served in executive roles at
automaker DaimlerChrysler and computer maker Dell.

Sklarsky will replace Robert Brust, 63, who previously announced his
intention to retire by January 2007.

Chief executive Antonio Perez said Kodak investors deserved to hear the
financial story from executives who will implement the strategies discussed,
rather than one who is retiring and claimed there was ‘nothing to hide’.
