– I’m excited for this next stage in Plexus’ growth. 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 – said Tarl Robinson.
Gene Tipps said: – I’m honored by the trust placed in me by Tarl and Alec. 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.
