TigerStop LLC has hired Rakesh Sridharan, formerly of the Leatherman Tool Group, as the company’s new CEO of worldwide operations.  “2016 was our strongest year in our 21 year history,” says TigerStop’s founder, Spencer Dick.
“Sridharan has come aboard at just the right time to help guide our tremendous growth, ensuring that TigerStop continues to provide exceptional products and service on all fronts. We feel very lucky that someone with his skills, experiences and past successes has chosen to join TigerStop.”

As founder and board of directors’ member, Spencer Dick will focus on his true passion of new product innovation to bring the next generation of TigerStop products to market. Sridharan comes to TigerStop from Leatherman Tool Group where initially he was VP of Operations, and most recently the President of LED LENSER out of Germany, a subsidiary of Leatherman Tool Group.

Prior to joining the Leatherman Tool Group, Sridharan worked for Toro Company of Bloomington, MN, a market-leading maker of lawn care equipment with 2016 revenues of 2.4 billion dollars. Sridharan was responsible for starting Toro’s first foreign operations in Mexico and within four years, the operation covered over half a million square feet and employed nearly 3,000 personnel.

“I am honored and privileged to join the TigerStop team and continue the mission, vision and values of founder Spencer Dick,” says Sridharan. “I’m excited to work with TigerStop’s leaders, talented employees and dedicated partners in the U.S. and around the world to create greater value. I look forward to working on strategies to grow the company, continuing to innovate new products and better serving our customers.”
