Aware is proud to add four new Most Valued Professional (MVP) awards to our mantel of honors and achievements for 2015, which now gives our noted team of Sitecore practitioners a total of 13 MVP designations.
For 2015, Aware received three new Technology MVP awards and one Digital Strategist MVP award, a recently added distinction to the MVP program.
Sitecore’s Technology MVP award, now in its ninth year, honors elite individuals from around the globe who not only possess Sitecore expertise but also passionately contribute to the growth of the Sitecore community.
Sitecore’s Digital Strategist MVP, a newer award designation, showcases marketing professionals who have created data-driven solutions and used the Sitecore Experience Platform to drive customer engagement. Recipients of this award have successfully leveraged Sitecore Experience Marketing capabilities such as analytics, testing, automation, social connect and personalization.
Only four percent of Sitecore Certified Partners worldwide hold MVP designations. With more than 26,000 developers and nearly 150 MVP international applicants, we’re proud of these Awarians who have earned a spot in the Sitecore MVP class of 2015:
Ben Golden, Director of Technology and Senior Solution Architect, received his first Sitecore MVP Award in 2008.
