About Richard Ferris
A part of the Richard Ferris collection. Richard Ferris worked at Kodak for over
40 years, Starting work in the UK in 1947 as a sales rep, developing photos in
the back of a Kodak van, he began a career with Kodak at its peak that would
last decades, and cross continents.
From 1955 his work in sales would take him to Rhodesia, as it then was – the
first commercial photographic venture to do so in the region – from which he
would rapidly rise through the ranks. By 1959 he was the technical sales manager
for all of Rhodesia, where he would work until 1968.
From there he moved to Singapore, where he would become general manager and
managing director of Kodak in Singapore in 1975, grossing $20 million in sales
in 1976 and directing activities in a swathe of the Far Eastern region from
Thailand to Indonesia. He then returned to Africa as managing director of the
near entirety of the South African region, until his retirement in 1986.
