Strategic leadership, creative decision making and a focused vision help Dolores Kruchten successfully develop new IT channel opportunities for Kodak and its partners. For these achievements CRN magazine recently tapped Kruchten, General Manager, Business Solutions and Services Group, and Vice President, Eastman Kodak Company as one of 2009's "Top 100 Women in the Channel."
The Top 100 Women were chosen by CRN editors for outstanding achievements in their businesses, as well as their roles as key influencers in the technology channel. The Top 100 Women in the Channel, commended for their leadership and conquering challenges within their business communities, represent a changing trend in a traditionally all-male industry.
With more than 10 years of service to the channel for Kodak's Document Imaging business and Kodak Service and Support, Kruchten offers her unique management style to dramatically transform the face of Kodak's channel program. She remains a key driver of Kodak's channel category-leading products, including KODAK Capture Pro Software, the KODAK SCANMATE i1120 Scanner, and the KODAK Scan Station 500. Under her leadership, Kodak's Service and Support team provides integrated multi-vendor support, sales and marketing. Kruchten guides Kodak's value-added reseller network, helping to create new service and revenue opportunities.
"We are very pleased to recognize women executives reaching the highest levels of leadership in a wide range of dynamic companies," said Robert C. DeMarzo, Senior Vice President and Editorial Director, Everything Channel. "It is with great pleasure that we honor the women who have made a profound impact in the technology marketplace. We offer our congratulations to Dolores Kruchten for her significant contributions to Kodak and to our industry."
Over the next year, Kruchten will continue to lead Kodak's BSSG to enhance its offerings for information-dependent enterprises, while at the same time working collaboratively with channel partners to help grow their business.
