Donald Snider formerly served on our Advisory Council on Agriculture, Small Business and Labor. He is president and chief executive officer of Paper Plas, Inc. In 1994, Chrysler was looking for a new source to supply paper to its glass plants. Snider, owner and CEO, quickly raised enough capital to assume the paper conversion interest of Midwest Paper and started his own company. In addition, Snider recently opened his second plant in Milwaukee. He is currently doing business with four Fortune 500 Companies and has also forged strategic alliances with Tenneco Packaging. Snider has received numerous awards and recognition for his entrepreneurial achievements and service to the community, including Black Enterprises magazine's Business Innovator of the Year.
