“Sitecore is an important strategic partner for the agency and we enjoy playing an active role in the broader community,” said Brian Payne, VP of Technology at Connective DX.

Connective DX, a digital experience agency and Sitecore Gold Implementation Partner, announced that three team members have been awarded “Most Valuable Professional (MVP)” by Sitecore®, a global leader in experience management software. Those team members are:

  • Pete Navarra, Director of Technical Strategy, two-time Technology Sitecore MVP
  • Ben Lipson, Senior Software Engineer, two-time Technology Sitecore MVP
  • Jeff Cram, Chief Strategy Officer, first-time Ambassador Sitecore MVP

Sitecore recognized 208 technologists and 63 ambassadors worldwide to be named a Sitecore MVP this year.

Now in its twelfth year, Sitecore’s MVP program recognizes individual technology, strategy, and commerce advocates who share their Sitecore passion and expertise to offer positive customer experiences that drive business results. The Sitecore MVP Award recognizes the most active Sitecore experts from around the world who participate in online and offline communities to share their knowledge with other Sitecore partners and customers.

“We’re honored to see Pete and Ben continue to be named Sitecore MVPs again this year and to see Jeff recognized as well,” said Brian Payne, VP of Technology at Connective DX. “Sitecore is an important strategic partner for the agency and we enjoy playing an active role in the broader community.”

Upcoming Sitecore community involvement includes Pete Navarra presenting as part of the Sitecore Virtual Developer Day which will be broadcast worldwide on February 22. Additionally, he is attending SUGCON Europe in Berlin, Germany April 24-25, as well as presenting "The EXM Experience" at the New England Sitecore User Group meeting on March 15.

The Sitecore practice at Connective DX is part of a larger technology practice group that helps organizations successfully plan, deliver and maintain complex digital experience platforms. This includes looking beyond the marketing technology and helping organizations organize the people and processes necessary for success with enterprise content strategy and ongoing content operations.

“The Sitecore MVP awards recognize and honor those individuals who make substantial contributions to our loyal community of partners and customers,” said Pieter Brinkman, Sitecore Senior Director of Technical Marketing. “MVPs consistently set a standard of excellence by delivering technical chops, enthusiasm, and a commitment to giving back to the Sitecore community. They truly understand and deliver on the power of the Sitecore Experience Platform to create personalized brand experiences for their consumers, driving revenue and customer loyalty.”

The Sitecore Experience Platform™ combines web content management, omnichannel digital delivery, insights into customer activity and engagement, and strategic digital marketing tools into a single, unified platform. Sitecore Experience Commerce™ 9, released in January 2018, is the only cloud-enabled platform that natively integrates content and commerce so brands can fully personalize and individualize the end-to-end shopping experience before, during, and after the transaction. Both platforms capture in real time every minute interaction—and intention—that customers and prospects have with a brand across digital and offline channels. The result is that Sitecore customers are able to use the platform to engage with prospects and customers in a highly personalized manner, earning long-term customer loyalty.
