Digital Inkjet Leader Scott Schinlever Returns to EFI as Inkjet CEO

He assumes leadership for EFI’s industrial inkjet portfolio across display graphics, textiles, packaging and building materials


Digital inkjet professional Scott Schinlever rejoins Electronics For Imaging Inc. in a new role as the chief operating officer for EFI’s global inkjet business.

In the role, Schinlever leads the expansion of EFI’s industrial inkjet portfolio, while facilitating the analog-to-digital transformation throughout the industry for EFI’s current and future customers. Schinlever is responsible for all equipment, ink, and service solutions throughout the EFI portfolio in display graphics, textiles, packaging, and building materials.

Schinlever most recently held the position of president and COO at Automation Solutions for Tolland, Connecticut-based Gerber Technology. He 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 super wide-format printer manufacturer VUTEk, a company EFI acquired in 2005. He continued to rise the ranks at EFI following the acquisition, becoming senior vice president and general manager for EFI Inkjet Solutions, the company’s largest business unit, before going to Gerber Technology in 2018.

“We are thrilled to have Scott back in the EFI family,” says EFI chairman and CEO Jeff Jacobson. “Scott has an innate understanding of and expertise in the portfolio and solution set that will enable our customers to excel as the industry quickly migrates to industrial inkjet.”

Schinlever adds, “It feels great to be back at EFI. 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.”
