Jennifer Laible Makes Minnesota Business (Real) Power 50

We’re pleased to announce that Antenna President Jennifer Laible is being recognized by Minnesota Business Magazine as one of the 2018 (Real) Power 50 business leaders in the city.

The magazine describes the honorees: “The members of The (Real) Power 50 are the linchpins in their company. The connectors in their industry. The heart of the operation. The people who make things happen. The remarkable players in the Minnesota business community with a knack for getting things done — and being helpful along the way.”

This April, the 50 chosen movers and shakers will be honored at an awards dinner at the new Hyatt Regency, which will also be attended by former winners, nominators, and other Minneapolis/St. Paul business leaders.

We are so grateful for Jennifer’s steady leadership and passion for helping people do work they love.

This year's year features a great list of leaders, with many friends and clients among the honorees. Congrats to all the winners!
