CAMX 2019 kicked off with an exciting General Session, open to all attendees and exhibitors, featuring Vicki Holt, CEO of Protolabs. Protolabs is a bold manufacturing company that is creating disruption in manufacturing with a fresh, creative business model that is digitizing traditional manufacturing processes and enabling their clients to design, test and produce parts quickly, getting to market faster with smaller runs of customized products. The company has been named one of Forbes “Best Small Companies to Work” twice and has increased revenue by 160% in recent years. Holt will share with CAMX why the way manufacturing is done needs to be rethought and approached differently in order to meet the needs of the future. From robotics and AI to 3D printing, prototyping, and employee leadership, everyone in the audience will leave impressed, inspired, and ready to think about customer service, manufacturing, engineering, leadership and management differently.

Holt has served as President and CEO for Protolabs since 2014.
