This recognition is a tangible result of his devotion to helping organizations create contagiously engaged employees that transform the customer experience.
Microsoft classifies its MVPs as “technology experts who passionately share their knowledge with the community.” The process of joining this elite network includes demonstrated platform expertise, thought leadership, and contributions to the greater Microsoft technologies communities.

For over 20 years Microsoft MVPs have played a vital role in the support, advancement and adoption of Microsoft technologies. MVPs enjoy a unique position between the Microsoft world and the communities they serve. Key benefits include early access to new products and participation in direct feedback loops with Microsoft product teams to enhance and improve capabilities. For clients, this can translate to an even deeper understanding of these platforms, direct access to more Microsoft personnel and community experts, and proactive support in building out roadmaps for clients. MVPs attend an annual Global Summit and are empowered to address needs and opportunities throughout their local and regional networks.
