Elite distinction of 2016 Sitecore MVP was awarded for exceptional contributions to the Sitecore community.

Velir, a platinum Sitecore partner, today announced that 6 of its developers have been named a “Most Valuable Professional (MVP)” by Sitecore, the global leader in experience management software. Corey Caplette, Daniel DeLay, and Mark Stiles renewed their MVP status while Chris Sulham was newly recognized as an MVP this year. In addition, Velir recently hired 2 more MVPs, Dan Solovay and Mark Servais, who will be joining its development team at the end of this month. Together, this group formed six of only 177 people worldwide to be named a Sitecore Technology MVP this year, making Velir the only North American Sitecore partner to have 6 Technology MVPs. There are more than 10,000 certified developers and hundreds of partners in Sitecore’s global network. Less than 4% of Sitecore partners worldwide received an MVP designation, making Velir one of the leading Sitecore partners globally.

Now in its tenth year, Sitecore’s MVP program recognizes individual technology, digital strategy, and commerce advocates who share their Sitecore passion and expertise to offer positive customer experiences that drive business results. The Sitecore Technology MVP Award recognizes the most active Sitecore experts from around the world who participate in online and offline communities to share their knowledge with other Sitecore partners and customers.

"As one of Sitecore’s earliest North American partners in the mid-2000s, we saw the tremendous value the platform could provide to our clients and are honored to have been a part of its growth over the past 10 years. We are proud of Corey, Chris, Dan, Daniel, Mark Servais and Mark Stiles for their contributions to the Sitecore Community. They are representative of the passion and excellence we bring to our work on a daily basis.
