Electronics For Imaging, Inc. has named printing technology executive Evandro Matteucci vice president and general manager, Building Materials and Packaging.
Matteucci, a long-time senior leader at Kodak who is starting in his new position today, replaces former VP/GM José Luis Ramón Moreno, who has departed to pursue other career opportunities.
Matteucci has responsibility for the Almassora (Castellón), Spain-based EFI Building Materials and Packaging business, which manufactures a portfolio of award-winning solutions, including the industry's leading, and most technologically advanced, single-pass inkjet corrugated board and ceramic products - the EFI Nozomi C18000 direct-to-board printer and EFI Cretaprint tile decoration printers.
Matteucci's role also includes directing operations for EFI's new, award-winning Cubik line of single-pass printers for wood, concrete and polymer materials. In addition, he will manage the Almassora facility's development and commercialization of high-quality single-pass inkjet solutions in new and adjacent markets.
"I would like to thank José Luis for his dedication and contributions to EFI and wish him all the best in his future endeavors," said EFI Chairman and CEO Jeff Jacobson. "I am also very pleased to welcome Evandro into his new role, where he will deliver sound, customer-focused management advantages that reflect his extensive print technology expertise. I know he will make a significant impact as we continue to bring more productivity, value and innovation to the markets we serve."
Matteucci's international career spans more than 25 years in the printing industry in sales, marketing and general management roles. Most recently, he was global VP for Marketing, Business Development and Product Management in the Kodak Print Systems Division.
Matteucci, who first joined Kodak in 2005, has also served as Kodak Print Systems' regional VP and GM for the Asia Pacific, Middle East/Africa and Latin America regions. Prior to that, he was Kodak's APAC regional VP and GM for prepress solutions and workflow software. He has also served as Kodak's EMEA-region VP of Marketing as well as regional VP and GM for Kodak's prepress operations in EMEA. Prior to working for Kodak, Matteucci held a regional leadership position with Kodak Polychrome Graphics, a joint venture between Kodak and Sun Chemical.
Throughout these positions, he has gained significant expertise in digital print hardware, software and workflow, with keen insights on successful tech development and real-world implementations that help users profitably grow their businesses.
Matteucci's path in print began in his native Brazil at SENAI-SP Theobaldo de Nigris, where he obtained a Graphics Arts Technician degree. He earned a Bachelor of Arts in Communications and Marketing and an MBA in Brazil as well. Matteucci also holds an Advanced Management Program degree from IPADE in Mexico City and, most recently, completed Harvard Business School's General Management Program.
"EFI is in a very exciting phase right now, and I am pleased to participate in the groundbreaking work taking place to make it an even more innovative company," said Matteucci. "EFI's Nozomi and Cretaprint solutions have had unparalleled impact driving the analog-to-digital transformation, and I am dedicated to continuing that momentum by helping customers capture new opportunities."
