About Mike McKee

Mike is the Founder of Onward & Upward Consulting -- an advisory firm focused on helping CEOs and functional leaders master the First Principles of growing a venture-backed company. Mike founded the firm for two simple reasons: he was the beneficiary of so much great advice at PTC, Rapid7, ObserveIT, and Proofpoint that he wanted to share it with as many people as possible so that more people will hopefully experience the excitement, challenge, learning, fulfillment, and joy that comes from taking a company from point A to point B; and secondly, Mike plans to be a CEO again so wants to stay connected with as many great people as possible. Mike has over 25 years of cross-functional, global experience in technology, most recently as EVP and GM at Proofpoint. Prior to joining Proofpoint, Mike was the CEO of ObserveIT which got sold to Proofpoint in 2019.
