Scott Schinlever rejoins EFI
Industry digital inkjet leader Scott Schinlever has re-joined Electronics For Imaging as Chief Operating Officer for EFI’s global inkjet business, a role which will see him further expanding EFI’s industrial inkjet portfolio, while also facilitating the analogue-to-digital transformation throughout the industry for EFI’s current and future customers.
He will be responsible for all equipment, ink, and service solutions throughout the v EFI portfolio in Display Graphics, Textiles, Packaging and Building Materials.
Schinlever, formerly the President and COO of Automation Solutions for Tolland, Connecticut-based Gerber Technology, had a long career managing the marketing, growth and development of EFI VUTEk printers and other EFI inkjet technologies. He joined the digital print industry in the late 1990s, working with the Xerox Office Systems Group. In 2001, he took on a marketing position at the pioneering superwide-format printer manufacturer VUTEk, a company EFI acquired in 2005 and continued to rise through the ranks at EFI following that acquisition, becoming Senior Vice President and General Manager for EFI Inkjet Solutions – the company’s largest business unit – before joining Gerber Technology in 2018.
“We are thrilled to have Scott back in the EFI family,” said EFI Chairman and CEO Jeff Jacobson. “Our industry is at a critical inflection point. I joined EFI one year ago because I clearly understood that EFI is the best-positioned company in the industry to drive the analogue-to-digital transformation in the industrial inkjet space. Under Scott’s leadership of the Inkjet Business, I am convinced that EFI will attain that leadership position across the diverse segments of display graphics, packaging, textiles and building materials.
“It feels great to be back at EFI,” Schinlever stated. “In the two years that I have been away, much has changed, but the spirit of innovation and the strong desire to make our customers successful has remained strong and is increasing every day. I look forward to digging in, getting caught up, and working to take our inkjet businesses to a new and even more successful future.”
Schinlever, who works from EFI’s Londonderry, N.H., facility, has an MBA from Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business and a bachelor’s degree in managerial economics from the University of California, Davis.
