She works tirelessly to foster an extremely effective partnership between the IT and customer success organizations. The resulting working relationship between both teams is very positive and collaborative—and has a direct, measurable impact on Proofpoint’s ability to thrive and keep organizations safe from cybercriminals.

In addition, Campbell has reduced turnover significantly by increasing the overall investment in her people. She has built employee training and development into quarterly roadmaps and goal planning to ensure success in addition to obtaining/renewing certifications. She also focuses on creating an exceptional team based on individual skill sets and she sees it as her responsibility to find those opportunities.
