Dept Celebrates Sitecore Ambassador Status
Dept is proud to announce its Client Development Director Paul Thomas has been named a Most Valuable Professional (MVP) in the Ambassador category by Sitecore, the global leader in digital experience management software. Thomas was one of only 97 Ambassadors worldwide to be named a Sitecore MVP this year.
The MVP program is now in its 14th year recognising professionals within the Sitecore community who actively apply their talent and expertise to help others best utilise Sitecore products to deliver premier customer experiences. Of more than 13,000 certified developers and over 24,000 active community participants, Paul is part of an elite group of 316 MVPs globally. All the nominations were reviewed by an independent panel of Sitecore employees from regional offices, technical marketing, product marketing, documentation, and executive roles. This year’s MVPs were selected for the quality, quantity and impact of the contributions they made in 2019, including the sharing of product expertise and mastery of the Sitecore platform to support both partners and customers.
“ It’s an honour to be named a Sitecore MVP for the third year running. The digital experience platform and best-in-class CMS empowers the world’s smartest brands. Based on my experience working with teams of incredible digital architects, I’ve seen first-hand what the Sitecore is capable of and am proud to advocate for the powerful technology. The MVP programme has strengthened my ties to the Sitecore community, enabling me to approach technical challenges differently to reach profound solutions.”
“One of our greatest assets is the highly collaborative Sitecore community, where members share technical knowledge and insights across numerous channels and at events to help each other build greater digital experiences for their organisations and customers,” said Pieter Brinkman, Senior Director of Technical Marketing at Sitecore.
