Digital Graphics Executive Recruiting (DGER) opened for business January 1, 2007. DGER specializes in personnel recruitment for wide format color inkjet printer manufacturers, ink and media companies, sign and screen printing shops, textile manufacturers, garment printers, sign accessory companies, commercial printers, application and RIP software companies, and other digital printing related areas.
DGER places up to five personnel per month. We work on a contingency fee basis only, believing that stripes must be earned and not paid for prior to work delivery (many retained search firms ask for up front payment without a guarantee of qualified candidate delivery). DGER places entry level to executive personnel in sales, service, marketing, graphic artistry, equipment operation, management , and more.
DGER has over 200 contracted clients on three continents including a list of who’s who among the above company types and Fortune 500 industry companies. We have a high rate of personnel placement longevity.
Scott Hoyt has a 30+ year wide format digital color printing history with working positions ranging from entry level to executive. National Sales Manager, Business Development Director, Business Line Team Chair, and author of wide format unit business plans. Scott has been an integral part of more than a dozen new product launches and sat on a piezo marketing development team when the print head technology was fairly new.
Scott built industry training materials, product trained 3,000+ company and distributor personnel (hands-on and presentation style), built return on investment models, and prepared side by side competitive analysis models. He is a paid industry consultant and heavily networked with sign franchises, buying groups, and 1,000’s of companies and candidates.
Featured industry speaker to groups as large as 500—Print-on-Demand Show, Flexcon Seminar, ERRA, and IMI “Next Era” Digital Conference.

Sampco is a national provider of marketing services to the building materials industries. Our Brilliant Graphics Group subsidiary provides large format digital printing, high definition digital scanning, color correction and graphic design. The Sampco Companies have over 23 years of experience and a national infrastructure of five manufacturing / distribution centers.
We contacted DGER several months ago to fill the Operations Manager position for Brilliant Graphics Group. I can say with confidence that Scott (Owner) is one of the most professional and customer focused recruiters that we have worked with to date. He is passionate about placing the correct individual in the position and has the resources and networking capabilities to succeed in his mission.
What impressed us the most about Scott is the impeccable follow up once the candidate was placed. His job didn’t end when the invoice was paid. We have consulted with him on several occasions after the fact and have invited him to strategic planning sessions. He has literally become an extension of our executive team and is a tremendous resource for our future planning in the large format printing realm.
Without reservation, I would recommend DGER highly for your recruiting needs.

DGER’s professional demeanor and extensive market knowledge make them the ideal recruiter for wide format inkjet. They present qualified candidates and really do their homework. It’s a pleasure working with a company that knows both the sales and technology sides of the business.

Although Nazdar SourceOne enjoys a leading position as a distributor to the screen printing and wide format graphics imaging industry, we still experience the same challenges as other companies when identifying talented individuals to fill our sales and technical support vacancies.
That is why we chose DGER to coordinate our recent search for a Northeast Region Territory Manager. This position was identified as a critical role in our Sales Organization and we needed to hit the ground running. Thanks to DGER, we greatly reduced our recruitment period and identified a well qualified individual to fill this important role. Thanks DGER, we’ll be back!
