We’re excited to announce that seven members of our award-winning Sitecore team have been selected as 2019 Most Valuable Professional (MVP) by Sitecore®, the global leader in experience management software. Now in its 13th year, Sitecore’s MVP program recognizes exceptional professionals from the community who actively share their Sitecore expertise to advance the future of customer experience and drive organizational change. 

This year’s wins are especially exciting for us on account of several factors:

  • This year marks the most MVP nominations in our history, with a total of seven MVPs across three categories: Technology, Strategy, and Ambassador. 
  • We’re extremely proud to see the growing diversity in our group of MVPs. It’s an honor to welcome two women MVPs to this elite group, who truly embody the spirit of Sitecore’s Move the Dial initiative and are forging a path for many other women in technology. 
  • Four of this year’s MVPs have won the distinguished status multiple years in a row, attesting to the strength of our Sitecore practice and our team’s tremendous commitment to the platform. 

"As one of Sitecore’s oldest North American partners from back in 2006, we are honored to have been a part of its evolution for well over a decade. We are extremely proud of all our Sitecore MVPs, several of whom have won Sitecore MVP awards multiple years in a row. We are also proud of our ongoing partnership with Sitecore and look forward to continue using the platform to create high-impact digital experiences for our clients."
