Welcome new OMVPs 2023!

Optimizely’s top-tier Most Valuable Professionals program honors 8 new OMVPs.

There's no greater way to start the week off than to announce the new OMVP members of 2023. Before I share the list of new members, here is a little about the OMVP program.

In 2007, EPiServer started a program called the Most Valuable Professionals (MVP) program as a 'thank you' to our most active mentors who lead the way for all other community members. These MVPs are nominated by others in the technical community as individuals who bring their experience in technology and business forward in the spirit of open exchange of knowledge and creativity. They willingly use the knowledge gained through their own successes and failures to accelerate the success of others. Once nominated, there is a selection process evaluating the candidate's engagement within the community, Optimizely project involvement, and other factors. When evaluations close, the new OMVP class is selected and receives exclusive status with Optimizely and its partners.

Becoming an OMVP gives these professionals access to additional exclusive benefits for their partners, and membership-only access to events, activities, and sneak peeks! Events including Local Developer Meetups, Roadshows, OMVP Summit/Retreat, Optimizely Connect, and more can be found on World. Look for more events this year!

As aforementioned, OMVPs are the main ambassadors for all Optimizely products as well as the main contributors in our Optimizely World and Slack communities, blogs, and forums. These individuals share and inspire others within the community to unlock digital potential. Let's salute our Fall class of OMVPs!
