Elite distinction awarded for commitment and dedication to the Sitecore community

Sagittarius today announced that Ian MacArthur, CEO, Christine Bookless and Robert McGovern, Sitecore Optimisation Consultants,  have been named Ambassador MVP and Strategy MVPs (Most Valuable Professionals) respectively by Sitecore®, a global leader in end-to-end digital experience management software. There were only 74 Ambassador MVPs and 30 Strategy MVPs worldwide to be named a Sitecore MVP this year.

Now in it’s 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.
