Ann Turner was promoted to chief marketing officer and vp for the company's film, photofinishing and entertainment group, while Michael Morelli was upped to vp and GM of Kodak's motion picture business in North and South America.

"(The promotions) are part of the growing changes as we continue to invest in future film business and look for additional opportunities in the digital business," Morelli said.
