Guy Gecht, CEO of Electronics For Imaging (EFI), Inc., a world leader in customer-focused digital printing innovation, has expressed his intention to step down. He will continue to serve as CEO till his replacement is named, and will work closely with the new CEO for a successful transition. Gecht will remain as a board member following the CEO change. 

“Stepping down as the leader of a great company is never an easy decision. With vast market opportunities, loyal customers and a robust product roadmap, reinforced by the unprecedented interest in Nozomi, EFI has never been better positioned for continued growth and success,” said Guy Gecht, CEO of EFI, said in a statement. “I think this makes it the right time, after 19 years as CEO of this unique company, for me to hand the reins to the next leader. I will stay fully focused on leading the outstanding EFI team during the search period, and will assist in ensuring a smooth transition once the new CEO is in place. As a shareholder, board member and a lifelong fan, nothing will be more gratifying for me than to see my successor leading EFI to achieve its full potential.”

“We are grateful for Guy’s 19 years as CEO of EFI,” said Gill Cogan, Chairman of EFI’s Board. “Together with his team, Guy transformed EFI from a single product line and OEM business model to a diverse, worldwide leader driving the transition from analog to on-demand digital imaging in industries that touch our lives every day. He led the expansion into Productivity Software and Industrial Inkjet, which drove EFI’s rapid growth to over $1 billion in annual revenues. Guy is only EFI’s third CEO in its 30-year history, which has brought a unique stability that the Board truly appreciates. As a global company with industry-leading technology and products, there is an unmatched opportunity for a new CEO to lead the charge in the years ahead.” (RR)
