Paul Wells

CEO, Kodak Alaris

Years in current role: Newly promoted

What do you enjoy most about your role?

Working with talented people and creating an environment where they can be successful and, in turn, ensure our organization’s success is what motivates me. I enjoy seeing projects and goals being achieved and completed. Seeing others achieve more than they thought they could is very rewarding.

What has been the biggest challenge you’ve dealt with over the past year?

We believed COVID was the biggest challenge we had faced but the last year has seen incredible disruption in the market, particularly in the supply chain and logistics area. This disruption coupled with inflation continues to be a big challenge, but I am proud of how the teams have mitigated these challenges and delivered. I am also particularly pleased with how we have prioritized the health and safety of our employees through the pandemic and continued to deliver on our commitments.

What has been your organization’s biggest success over the past year?

To meet and exceed our goals in the face of unprecedented disruption must be our biggest success in the last year, we have overcome so many challenges that could not have been reasonably foreseen and still delivered beyond what we committed to.

What do you see as the biggest changes in the technology industry over the next year?

Inflation and supply chain challenges are likely to drive the biggest challenges and changes for the technology sector in the short term. This includes people, who will be harder to attract and retain than ever before because the competition for talent is escalating.

What community organizations do you support as a volunteer and why?

Many of our employees and the company support the United Way in Rochester and the Day of Caring is our biggest volunteering activity. As an organization we have also donated to the UN Children’s Fund following the crisis in Ukraine. Personally, I am active in our local church community.
