Dave Valliere, CEO, Velir

Velir was one of the first agencies to partner with Sitecore since its introduction to the US market in 2006 and is one of just over a dozen partners (out of a field of hundreds) in North America to be awarded Platinum partner status. We have since grown with Sitecore to become one of the largest Sitecore Solution Partners in North America, have performed over 100 enterprise-level Sitecore implementations, and completed hundreds of Sitecore-related projects. 

“The Sitecore MVP awards recognize and honor those individuals who make substantial contributions to our loyal community of partners and customers,” said Pieter Brinkman, Sitecore Senior Director of Technical Marketing. “MVPs consistently set a standard of excellence by delivering technical chops, enthusiasm, and a commitment to giving back to the Sitecore community. They truly understand and deliver on the power of the Sitecore Experience Platform to create personalized brand experiences for their consumers, driving revenue and customer loyalty.”

The Sitecore Experience Platform™ combines web content management, omnichannel digital delivery, insights into customer activity and engagement, and strategic digital marketing tools into a single, unified platform. Sitecore Experience Commerce™ 9, released in January 2018, is the only cloud-enabled platform that natively integrates content and commerce so brands can fully personalize and individualize the end-to-end shopping experience before, during, and after the transaction. Both platforms capture in real time every minute interaction—and intention—that customers and prospects have with a brand across digital and offline channels. The result is that Sitecore customers are able to use the platform to engage with prospects and customers in a highly-personalized manner, earning long-term customer loyalty.
