Electronics For Imaging (EFI), a global technology company leading worldwide transformation from analog to digital imaging, has appointed Jeff Jacobson, a 30-year veteran of digital imaging and industrial technology sector, as chief executive officer (CEO). Jacobson will retain his position as executive chairman. He succeeds Bill Muir who is stepping down.

Prior to joining EFI, Jacobson served as chief executive officer of Xerox. He also served as both president of Xerox's Technology Business and president of Xerox's Global Graphic Communications Operations. Prior to joining Xerox in 2012, Jacobson was the chairman, president and chief executive officer of Presstek, a leading manufacturer of digital offset printing solutions, according to a press release by EFI.

"I am thrilled to be expanding my role on EFI's leadership team to identify unique opportunities for innovation across the company. EFI's portfolio of best-in-class solutions presents an exciting opportunity to drive further growth in high-quality inkjet and integrated, digital workflows. Together with my experienced and talented colleagues on the EFI team, we will provide the leadership needed to help EFI accelerate the transformation of industries where colourful images matter. I also want to join the EFI team in thanking Muir for his contributions to the company's success and wishing him the best in his future endeavours. Muir played a pivotal role in successfully positioning EFI for the next chapter of our evolution, always doing so with integrity and the best interests of customers and employees," said Jacobson.

Throughout his career, Jacobson has displayed an on-going commitment to helping customers improve their productivity and enhance their operations. As CEO of Xerox, he oversaw Xerox's largest product launch in its more than 100-year-history and led the company through a strategic transformation, delivering best-in-class customer service, and driving innovation, while improving Xerox's operating margins and cash flow.

Before his time at Xerox and Presstek, Jacobson served as chief operating officer of Eastman Kodak's Graphic Communications Group, where he was responsible for managing operations in Eastman Kodak's Global Graphics operations, which included manufacturing locations throughout North America, Europe, Japan, China, Israel and South Africa. Jacobson also served for five years as CEO of Kodak Polychrome Graphics, a highly successful joint venture between Sun Chemical and Eastman Kodak.

"It has been a privilege to lead EFI through an important chapter in the company's history, and I look forward to seeing EFI thrive as it continues to collaborate with customers and partners worldwide," said Muir. "I have admired Jacobson as an expert in the digital imaging space, and I am confident that with his vision and under his leadership, EFI will be able to successfully write the next chapter of innovation and market leadership across the company's portfolio of solutions."
