Impossible Foods employs about 350 people, mostly in the Redwood City headquarters and at its first manufacturing facility in Oakland.

Previously Chief Operating Officer of Dropbox, Dennis is a tech industry veteran and has  more than 25 years of experience at both startups and major multinationals. At Dropbox, Dennis helped Founder Drew Houston build a robust, scalable technology company with millions of customers globally. Dennis helped increase Dropbox’s global revenue to nearly $1.4 billion, and he was part of the company’s IPO in early 2018.

During his tenure he built the first business operations team, oversaw sales operations in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and led sales in North and South America, responsible for over $10 billion in revenue. Underlying every role was the challenge of scaling a fast-growing business with an expanding product set and a consumer pool of literally billions of people.
