EFI CEO Guy Gecht to Step Down

Guy Gecht (pictured), longtime CEO of Electronics For Imaging (EFI), has informed the board of directors about his intention to resign when his successor is named. Global executive search firm Spencer Stuart has been tasked to assist in searching possible candidates both internally and externally.

According to EFI, 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 EFI Board of Directors following the CEO change.

Gecht commented: “Stepping down as the leader of a great company is never an easy decision. With vast market opportunities, loyal customers and a robust product road map, reinforced by the unprecedented interest in Nozomi, EFI has never been better positioned for continued growth and success. 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.”
