Congratulations, Jeff. You are the right person at the right time to lead EFI into the future. It is so refreshing to see EFI's sponsor, Siris Capital, select an industry veteran to the CEO role. Our industry still relies on strong customer relationships and a strong focus on maintaining and building staff morale. Too many private equity firms choose outsiders, who manage by spreadsheets and miss the opportunities right in front of them.

Good luck to you and the entire EFI team!
