Liz Spranzani, Jim King, Deepthi Katta, Rick Cabral, and Danny Pastor received Ambassador awards and Rich Leiva, Roberto Armas, Sandy Foley, and Hetal Dave received Technology awards. These Verndale team members are among a distinguished group of only 137 Technology MVPs, 30 Strategy MVPs, and 74 Ambassadors worldwide to be named Sitecore MVPs this year.
Now in its 17th year, the MVP program recognizes professionals who actively share their fascination, knowledge, and expertise with online and offline Sitecore communities to help them best utilize Sitecore products to deliver premier customer experiences.
Selected out of more than 16,000 certified developers and over 30,000 active community participants, the 241 MVPs are truly an elite group. This year’s MVPs were selected by a panel of Sitecore employees for the quality, quantity, and impact of the contributions they made in 2022, including the sharing of product expertise and advanced knowledge of the Sitecore platform to support both partners and customers.
