Klee Kleber has spent more than 20 years working globally as a marketing executive at companies such as Rackspace, Dell, WP Engine, and Segway. He has managed through periods of hyper-growth and significant market change, and has specialized in building high-performance teams from the ground up.
Klee currently is a Co-Founder at BuildGroup, a company that selectively invests in leadership teams with staying power. BuildGroup backs founders who are ambitious enough to want to make a dent in the universe and humble enough to realize they can’t do it alone. By providing permanent capital from aligned investors and avoiding forced exits, BuildGroup frees entrepreneurs to focus on serving customers instead of raising the next round. The company believes that great businesses are built, not bought, and that’s why the team works side-by-side with founders to create conditions for long-term growth. BuildGroup was founded in Austin, Texas by a team of proven builders who love nothing more than helping build and grow extraordinary companies.
Klee also serves as the Chair of the Board of Trustees for the national Polycystic Kidney Disease Foundation, and the Chair of the KUT Public Media Advisory Board. He lives in Austin with his wife, Brigid, and their two daughters, Cate and Claire.
