We are delighted to announce that four of our Solutions Architects have been named a Most Valuable Professional (MVP) in the Technology and Strategy categories by Sitecore®, the global leader in digital experience management software.

What the accolade means to our MVPs

Jeremy Davis

Jeremy Davis, Solutions Architect, has been an MVP in the Technical category for seven years. He says:

“The Sitecore MVP user community is so vibrant and important that I’m privileged to  have been a part of it for seven years now and I’m proud to be recognised for my contributions.”

Martin Davies  

Martin Davies, Solution Architect, has been an MVP in the Technical category since 2015, so this is his sixth award. He says:

“It’s fantastic to receive the MVP again this year. It’s even more special this time round as both Sitecore and the UNRVLD family enter an exciting period of growth.”

Kate Orlova

Kate Orlova, Solution Architect, joined the MVP community in the Strategy category a year ago and quickly became a recognisable figure in the community. She says:

“I’m delighted to have been the first MVP to contribute to Sitecore Documentation and have shared Insights about improving performance of Sitecore in Azure.”

Anna Gevel

Anna Gevel, Solution Architect, has become an MVP in the Strategy category for the first time in 2021. Her eight years of development experience in Sitecore and more than five years of working with Sitecore marketing features, such as profiling, personalisation, A/B and multivariate testing, made her a valuable contributor into the Profiling Strategy whitepaper for Sitecore. She says:

“I am passionate about sharing my Sitecore knowledge and experience with the Sitecore community and hope that Sitecore MVP title will help me to reach a wider audience, contribute to Sitecore documentation and provide feedback about Sitecore products at early stages.”

What it means to be a Sitecore MVP

Now in its 15th year, the Sitecore MVP programme recognises professionals within the 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 globally, the 284 MVPs are truly an elite group. This year’s MVPs were selected for their exceptional Sitecore community support with numerous virtual engagements and provided vital feedback on Sitecore’s products for further development and improvement in 2020.

On the win, Dan Berry, Chief Executive Officer at UNRVLD commented:

“The whole team is so proud of our colleagues’ achievements and the fact they have been recognised by the platform creator’s top awards. We set out to create an industry-leading Solutions team and this award, on top of the results generated by the team, suggest we are doing that.”

The MVP Award enables our architects to gain exclusive access to the private MVP Forum on Sitecore Community.

Becoming a Sitecore MVP is a difficult task that requires an exceptional level of involvement in the Sitecore community, online and offline.

Each year all the nominations are reviewed by an independent panel of Sitecore employees from regional offices, technical marketing, product marketing, documentation and executive roles.

What does this mean for UNRVLD's clients?

The award and recognition highlights the hard work and commitment of Kate to the Sitecore community, but also the wider team of Sitecore developers at UNRVLD who support our MVPs and our clients with their Sitecore expertise.
