We’re excited to announce that seven members of the Velir team have been recognized as Most Valuable Professionals (MVP) by Sitecore®, the global leader in experience management software. Since 2006, Sitecore has distinguished notable Sitecore contributors with the title of MVP. This year’s 284 MVPs were chosen from more than 12,000 certified developers and 20,000 active community participants to be recognized for the impact they’ve made on the Sitecore community. Our MVPs have produced content on everything from leveraging external data services to get more out of Sitecore personalization to how to simplify Sitecore Commerce with Coveo.

We’re extremely proud of the Velirians who achieved Sitecore MVP status this year. Our investment in the platform is matched by the commitment of these seven talented individuals to not only push Velir’s Sitecore practice further, but also to grow the Sitecore community. I’m grateful for their time and effort to help our Sitecore clients achieve their full potential on the platform.

— Dave Valliere, Velir's CEO

Velir was an early adopter of Sitecore’s CMS when it first arrived in the U.S. In the 15 years we’ve been a Sitecore partner, we’ve developed deep expertise on the platform by performing hundreds of Sitecore implementations and working on Sitecore-related projects.
