Kodak CEO named to governor’s commission

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo has announced the members of the Spending and Government Efficiency Commission to modernize state government, improve performance, increase accountability and save taxpayers’ money.

Tapped to head the commission is Antonio M. Perez, chairman and CEO of Eastman Kodak Co.

The governor proposed the commission in January and it was recently passed in the state budget. It is is the first major redesign of state government since 1927.

The commission will be co-chaired by Paul Francis, the director of Agency Redesign and Efficiency.

“Improving the performance of state government has been one of Gov. Cuomo’s highest priorities and I am honored to be part of the team that will make it a reality,” Perez said.

Since 2003, Perez has led a transformation from a film-based business to one based on digital technologies. Prior to that, he served 25 years at Hewlett-Packard, where he was a corporate vice president and a member of the company’s Executive Council. Perez also serves on President Obama’s Jobs and Competitiveness Council, which is responsible for promoting economic growth and job creation in the U.S.

The commission will  deliver final recommendations to the governor by June 1, 2012.
