There is new leadership coming to the Eastman Business Park.

Kodak announced on Thursday that Dolores Kruchten is retiring from her position as leader of the business park and Kodak Corporate Real Estate.

Kruchten has had a 36-year career as a senior executive with Kodak. She took over as Vice President of the business park in 2015.

“We appreciate the many accomplishments and contributions Dolores brought to Eastman Business Park,” said Jeff Clarke, CEO, Kodak. “We look forward to continuing to leverage this important asset to our company and the Greater Rochester Area.”

Kruchten is confident about the park’s future.

“Eastman Business Park is on a strong growth path today; new buildings are going up for the first time in decades,” Kruchten said. “The face of the area is changing for the good and I am very pleased to have had a chance to contribute to the revitalization of this great asset to the greater Rochester area, to New York State, and to the country.”

The business park will now be headed by Kodak Chief Financial Officer David Bullwinkle. He says that the company will continue to invest in the business park to accelerate its growth and create more jobs.

Bullwinkle will be working with two Kodak vice presidents Arline Liberti and Tim Palmer  in managing Eastman Business Park.

Kruchten’s last day is November 5.
