Plexus Worldwide announced that Gene Tipps, who joined the company as Chief Operating Officer in 2018, has been promoted to Chief Executive Officer. Founders Tarl Robinson and Alec Clark will now transition into roles on a newly created strategic council. Robinson will stay in his current role until the beginning of next year to ensure a seamless transition.
“I’m excited for this next stage in Plexus’ growth,” Robinson said. “Gene has been instrumental in Plexus’ continued trajectory to becoming a leader in our industry. I’ve seen his steadfast commitment to Plexus and have been inspired by his strategic vision for the company. I know he will be an inspiration for the entire organization as we continue our legacy journey.”
The new Plexus Strategic Council formed by Robinson and Clark as Chair and Vice Chair respectively will also include four other outside thought leaders and industry experts. Together, the group will serve in both visionary and advisory capacities.
“I’m honored by the trust placed in me by Tarl and Alec,” Tipps said. “They are the epitome of what business leaders should be–brilliant, insightful, deeply invested in their people, and committed to creating the best products on the market. I know this new structure will allow an even greater partnership with them.”
