Sitecore®, the global leader in experience management software, today announced the 2020 Sitecore Most Valuable Professionals (MVPs), honoring more than 300 individuals who have gone above and beyond to support the Sitecore community with educational product content and engagements as well as offering invaluable early user feedback on products in development. Now in its 14th year, the MVP program represents professionals from across 35 countries and more than 140 companies who provide the human element critical to driving innovations for Sitecore solutions and building an excited user base who actively engage both on and offline.
In 2020, Sitecore recognized 154 Technology MVPs, 46 Strategy MVPs, 19 Commerce MVPs, and 97 Ambassador MVPs. We are so proud to have Brian, Diego and Jo among this rare group of professionals. Their commitment to the Sitecore community and the benefit it brings to our clients is what allows Brainjocks to continue to distinguish itself as a true innovator in the MarTech space.
"Whether they were presenting, blogging or just committing to learning new things, both Diego and Jo really earned their MVPs this year. At Brainjocks, we encourage our team to get better every day— because that’s what we commit to for our clients," said 9-year Technology Ambassador MVP Brian Beckham, CEO and founder at Brainjocks. “Having Diego and Jo share their Sitecore expertise with our company, our clients and with me makes us all able to contribute more to the greater Sitecore community, and that’s what being an MVP is all about!”
Sitecore MVPs are selected through an extensive evaluation process that considers their deep understanding of the Sitecore platform and their commitment to sharing it with other Sitecore partners and customers via original content, such as blog posts, podcasts, videos and webinars, as well as through speaking opportunities and online engagements via social media, chat groups and user forums. These select individuals also engage directly with Sitecore, offering early assessment of new products before they come to market.
"It is fulfilling to see the sense of real community and accomplishment among the Sitecore MVPs, both old and new. While we are focused daily on enabling accomplishments in the digital world, the human connection is a critical component that cannot be overlooked. Sitecore MVPs donate their time and expertise to help our product teams understand what users want and need from our solutions, while educating and mentoring customers on what is possible with our latest offerings," said Pieter Brinkman, senior director of technical marketing at Sitecore. "These individuals are an invaluable asset to our organization and a critical part of the Sitecore Ecosystem."
