EFI’s CEO Guy Gecht to resign

In 2015, EFI entered the textile printing marketing with the acquisition of Italian digital textile company Reggiani Macchine. © EFIElectronics For Imaging (EFI), a leading provider of complete solutions for the textiles market, has announced that its long-time CEO, Guy Gecht intends to step down from his operating role at the company when his successor is named.

Mr Gecht will continue to serve as CEO until his replacement is named and has committed to working closely with the new CEO to ensure a successful transition. Gecht will remain as a member of the Board of Directors 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.

“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 analogue 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 US$ 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.”

EFI develops technologies for the manufacturing of signage, packaging, textiles, ceramic tiles, and personalised documents, with a wide range of printers, inks, digital front ends, and a comprehensive business and production workflow suite that streamlines the production process. In 2015, EFI entered the textile printing marketing with the acquisition of Italian digital textile company Reggiani Macchine. The following year, EFI acquired Optitex, a 3D digital workflow provider.
