Schinlever had previously worked at EFI for more than 12 years. He joined the group when EFI acquired Vutek, where he was VP of marketing, in 2005 and went on to head up EFI’s inkjet business. He left the group in spring 2018 to join Gerber Technology as COO of automation solutions.
EFI chairman and CEO Jeff Jacobson said he was “thrilled” to have Schinlever back on board.
“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,” Jacobson stated.
“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.”
Schinlever said it was “great to be back”.
“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,” he said.
