Presstek Elects Freimuth to be Its New Chief Executive
“We are also pleased to be able to have Arnon assume the role of chief financial officer. Arnon brings a rare combination of both executive operations and executive finance leadership experience from within our industry. He will be an outstanding addition to the Presstek team.”
In recognizing the departing executives, Barr said, “The board is indebted to Jeff Jacobson and Jeff Cook for guiding the company safely through an incredibly difficult period created by the economic recession. They leave the company well positioned to take advantage of its broad product portfolio, headlined by the versatile 75DI digital off-set press. We know they will both be successful in their upcoming roles, and we wish them the best.”
“I am thrilled to be joining Presstek,” said Freimuth. “I want to thank Jeff Jacobson who has done an outstanding job of steering the company through the most difficult waters in the memory of our industry and emerging still on course and once again picking up steam. I look forward to working with the amazing team at Presstek as together we help our customers succeed by bringing them the best digital solutions in the marketplace.”
