Plexus Worldwide has appointed Gene Tipps to be the health and wellness company’s new Chief Executive Officer, effective October 3, 2022. Founders Tarl Robinson and Alec Clark will shift into new roles with the launch of a new strategic council.
Robinson transitioned from his role as CEO at the end of September while Clark will remain on until early 2023, ensuring a smooth changeover.
Tipps joined Plexus® in 2018 as Chief Operating Officer. He was the driving force behind the delivery of over 30 new products and expanded Plexus Worldwide’s reach into new and emerging markets.
Last year, Tipps was promoted to President of Global Operations, overseeing all areas of the company’s operations and information technology at both domestic and international levels. He has played a central role in the development and evolution of Plexus during the last four years and helped the company navigate a global pandemic during one of the most challenging times for supply chain and operations in recent history.
“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.”
Before joining Plexus, Tipps served as Chief Operating Officer at Yevo, and Senior Vice President, Operations at LifeVantage. A seasoned direct selling executive with extensive knowledge of all stages of the business life cycle, Tipps is passionate about infusing bold concepts into organizations at their growth and maturity points.
“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.”
Tipps also cites the rapport between Robinson and Clark as one of the foundations of Plexus Worldwide’s success.
“Tarl and Alec have a camaraderie that is built on shared vision,” explains Tipps. “They know where they want the company to go and use their complementary talents and skills to get there. It’s a dynamic that works and one that I’ve been lucky enough to have with our executive team. We look to Tarl and Alec as our role models.”
The new Strategic Council formed by Robinson and Clark as Chair and Vice Chair will consist of four outside thought leaders and industry experts. The group will serve in both a visionary and advisory capacity.
“It’s a powerful moment in Plexus’ history” said Clark. “To have the leadership in place that allows Tarl and I to be able to focus on the company’s long-term vision is both humbling and incredibly rewarding. With Gene at the helm of Plexus, I am confident of a dynamic and prosperous future.”
