Plexus Worldwide has appointed Gene Tipps to the role of President of Global Operations. Previously, Tipps held the title of Chief Operating Officer at the Plexus headquarters in Scottsdale, where he worked with global teams to launch more than 30 new products, expand the product distribution footprint, enhance domestic and international supply chain and provide guidance to new markets in Australia, Mexico and Canada.
“Since Gene joined Plexus in 2018, he has been a key leader who has been responsible for many of our recent accomplishments, including expanding existing supply chain and warehouse operations across all markets while navigating logistical challenges during the global pandemic,” said Tarl Robinson, Plexus Founder and CEO. “As one of the industry’s top experts, we rely on his experience and insight to define and implement domestic and global expansion strategies so we can share our approach to health and wellness with more people around the world.”
Tipps will continue to lead the Operations, Manufacturing and Logistics teams, but will now also provide strategic leadership for company operations, both domestic and international, including research and development, information technology and procurement.
“I am excited to continue to guide the Plexus team through future opportunities, while supporting growth objectives and strategies,” Tipps said. “We have amazing people at Plexus, and I look forward to helping them grow individually and as leaders as we seek to help more people around the world achieve health and happiness through Plexus’ unique product line.”
