In 2021, Sitecore recognized 170 Technology MVPs, 33 Strategy MVPs and 81 Ambassador MVPs from more than 110 companies across 33 countries.

“It is with great pleasure we announce these 284 outstanding leaders in the Sitecore community, especially in the MVP program’s 15th year,” said Steve Tzikakis, CEO of Sitecore. “2020 was a challenging year for everyone, but our global community remained connected with efforts from our MVPs, who were able to overcome immense hurdles and share their knowledge and experiences through their dedication to the Sitecore community.”

The Sitecore MVP distinction is awarded to members of the international Sitecore community who have demonstrated mastery of the Sitecore platform and a commitment to sharing knowledge and technical expertise with community partners, customers and prospects over the course of the past year. The MVP program is more than an award – it also offers exclusive invitations to MVP discussion forums, regional meetings and the MVP Summit, as well as access to privileges such as early product releases, discussions with the product teams, and webinars.

This year’s 284 MVPs went above and beyond in 2020 to continue to connect and inform Sitecore’s global community, despite the pandemic, when in-person events were not possible. For example, in March 2020, when the Sitecore User Group Conference (SUGCON) in Europe was canceled, MVPs immediately formed a committee to organize a virtual conference. The resulting SUGCON Global in April 2020 had more than 2,000 remote registrants, and the 24-hour virtual event made it possible for content and conversations to connect attendees around the world.

“Having had one of the longest tenures as a Sitecore MVP, I can honestly say that I am proud of what the MVP community has accomplished and continues to do to ensure Sitecore’s products can be understood and used by a large developer and marketer base,” said Klaus Petersen, a 14-year MVP. “The community includes humble professionals who demonstrate immense effort and dedication to showcasing the possibilities of combining people and software. For me, the accomplishments of the community are astonishing and unique to Sitecore.”
