Klaas was CEO and GM of Colorant Chromatics through early 2012 and has also held management positions at chemical company Clariant.

“Bjoern’s experience in international leadership and his knowledge of the manufacturing industry will be invaluable,” said Vicki Holt, president and CEO at Proto Labs.
