MAPLE PLAIN, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Jackie Schneider, vice president of sales and customer service at Proto Labs, Inc., (NYS: PRLB) received a Woman in Business Award from the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal. Her leadership in expanding sales growth, and her position on the executive committee were key factors in her nomination for this prestigious award.

"I really admire women who make it to the executive level, which is a challenge in corporate America," says Schneider's nominator, Marmy Nelson, Proto Labs senior international compliance manager. "It has been said that women don't do enough to encourage other women, and I wanted to nominate Jackie as an example to the young women in our company."
