ROCHESTER, NY — Kodak (www.kodak.com) has appointed Christian Richter to the newly-created role of film lab and studio relationship manager. The move is part of Kodak’s ongoing effort to support the motion picture film infrastructure.
Richter will be responsible for developing and managing strategies to optimize the workflow between studios, filmmakers, laboratories and post facilities. He joined the company in 1997 and has worked solely in the entertainment imaging division. His responsibilities have ranged from managing the business unit’s initiatives for students, film schools and emerging filmmakers in Germany, to general management of Kodak’s Cinelabs in Dubai and Bulgaria.
After developing broad international sales experience over several years, Richter became an integral part of Kodak’s product development and innovation advocacy teams, working with R&D scientists to drive product quality and growth.
Currently, he is the business manager for Europe, the Middle East and Africa, a title he’ll maintain as he embarks on his new responsibilities.
