"While it was a difficult decision for me to leave EFI as the business is just beginning to realize its full potential, this strong position also makes it the right time for me to take on a different set of challenges and embark on the next chapter in my career," said Vincent Pilette. "My confidence in the Company's leadership and opportunities has never been higher, and I look forward to remaining a supporter and a shareholder of EFI."
