Why Nominated: Lyn Campbell has evangelized a people-centric approach to security across Proofpoint. Since joining the company, Campbell has added employee training and development to the company’s quarterly roadmaps and goal planning to ensure success. She has also focused on creating an exceptional team based on individual skill sets and has established a culture internally at Proofpoint that is focused on bringing in entry-level people and then growing them into the next phase in career within the company. This helps to limit much of the department’s attrition to other roles within Proofpoint.
