Velir Wins Five 2024 Sitecore MVP Awards
As a testament to the strength of our partnership and commitment to delivering best practices and thought leadership in the Sitecore space, we’re excited to announce that five members of Velir’s team have been named Most Valuable Professionals (MVPs) by Sitecore®, a global leader in end-to-end digital experience management software.
Now in its 18th year, the MVP program recognizes professionals who actively share their interests, knowledge, expertise, and best practices with the Sitecore community — both online and offline — to help them leverage Sitecore products to deliver impactful audience experiences.
Selected from more than 16,000 certified developers and over 30,000 active community participants, this year’s 247 MVPs are truly an elite group. MVPs were selected by a panel of Sitecore employees for the quality, quantity, and impact of the contributions they made in 2023, including the product expertise and advanced knowledge of the Sitecore product portfolio they shared to support partners and customers.
Over the past year, our MVPs produced a range of content on everything from Webhooks & GraphQL: New Sitecore XP Communication Options, Overcoming Personalization’s Content Challenges in Sitecore, When You Should Migrate to XM Cloud, and more. Our team presented at SUGCON Europe, Sitecore’s DX tour events, numerous webinars, and the New England Sitecore User Group, which Velir proactively organizes to ensure the Sitecore community benefits from our constant Sitecore learnings.
As a Sitecore partner for nearly 20 years, Velir has remained at the forefront of Sitecore’s evolving technology and product portfolio. We’re committed to continuously evolving our team with training and certifications, and we’ve developed deep Sitecore expertise by performing hundreds of Sitecore implementations across all industries. We’re also one of the very few agencies that have hands-on, proven experience with Sitecore’s marketing functionality. We advise customers on how to maximize their investments in Sitecore and develop multi-year roadmaps to drive feature adoption and increase ROI.
“For the eighteenth year running, we’re pleased to be honoring experts who have distinguished themselves through their technical acumen and commitment to helping others build great digital experiences.” said Dave O’Flanagan, Sitecore chief product officer. “The MVPs are invaluable to the global Sitecore community, and they continue to impress us with their unique contributions.”

Ambassador MVPs partner with Sitecore executives, participate in community events, and provide insights about the Sitecore product roadmap and strategy.
