“As White Ops continued to hit certain revenue milestones, I felt strongly that the requirements for the CEO role changed significantly,” said Michael Tiffany, President and Co-founder of White Ops. “It was important to me, our executive team and the board that we bring in a seasoned leader who can partner with me, exemplify our unique culture and steer and scale our business. Sandeep fits that mold beautifully.”
