Velir Wins 7 Sitecore MVP 2022 Awards
We’re excited to announce that seven members of Velir’s team have been recognized as Most Valuable Professionals (MVPs) by Sitecore®, the global leader in experience management software. Since 2006, Sitecore has distinguished notable contributors to its community with the title of MVP. This year’s 235 MVPs were chosen from more than 12,000 certified developers and 20,000 active community members for the impact they’ve made on the Sitecore community. Our MVPs have produced content on everything from how to leverage external data services for Sitecore personalization to how to simplify Sitecore Commerce with Coveo.
This year we’re also pleased to share that we have one first-time MVP, Adam Ribaudo, our VP of Data Integration and Activation, and six repeat MVPs. Two of these six Velirians are 10-time Sitecore MVPs, and one of them is a 12-time MVP, which is a remarkable achievement. There are only 22 people in the world to hold the distinction of 10-time Sitecore MVP, so we’re thrilled that three of them are Velirians.
"We’re extremely proud of the team members who achieved Sitecore MVP status this year. Earning this distinction is no small feat and highlights the commitment of these talented individuals to both the Sitecore community and Velir’s Sitecore practice. I’m grateful for the time and effort each of them puts into becoming a Sitecore thought-leader."
Velir was an early adopter of Sitecore’s CMS when it first arrived in the U.S. in 2006. Since then, we’ve remained at the forefront of Sitecore’s evolving technology and product portfolio, which includes Sitecore JSS, Sitecore CDP, and Sitecore Content Hub. And in the 16 years we’ve been a Sitecore partner, we’ve developed deep expertise with its products by performing hundreds of Sitecore implementations and advising customers on how Sitecore’s products can best serve them.
