We are proud and excited to announce that Pete Navarra, VP DXP Solutions, has been honored as a Sitecore Most Valuable Professional (MVP) Ambassador for 2023. Pete is one of 74 Ambassadors selected for 2023 and this is Pete’s 6th Sitecore MVP award since 2017.

Working with Sitecore Since 2008

Pete joined the executive team at SearchStax in July 2022 as the VP, DXP Solutions, after working for more than 15 years as a Practice Director and Technical Director for several Sitecore implementation agencies, most recently Perficient. He has been connected to the Sitecore community since he was certified as a Sitecore consultant in 2008 and has participated in dozens of Sitecore implementations.

The Sitecore MVP designation is well-deserved recognition. Pete is one of the three moderators on the Sitecore Stack Exchange, the largest and most trusted online community for Sitecore developers to learn, share knowledge and build their careers. Since becoming an MVP, Pete has been a speaker at international events in Amsterdam, Berlin, London and Montreal, and he has shared his knowledge as a speaker in other Events and Meetups across the United States, Europe and Australia. 

Sitecore MVP Program Enters 17th Year

Sitecore has been honoring members of the international Sitecore community for 17 years and this year they selected 241 professionals for the MVP honor. There are three categories of MVP – Technology MVP, Strategy MVP and Ambassador MVP.

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. 

The Ambassador MVP is an “individual with solid knowledge of the latest Sitecore offering who provide value for Sitecore, by influencing partners, industry, customers and decision makers and who provides product feedback, supplies references and case studies.”
“Sitecore is a key partner to SearchStax – our joint customers benefit in many ways from our partnership, including fast implementation using our plugin; leveraging Sitecore’s rich CMS features; and all the typical benefits of a SaaS offering, to deliver better experiences,” said Sameer Maggon, Chief Executive Officer of SearchStax. “We are so excited to see that Pete’s outstanding contributions to the Sitecore community continue to be recognized through the MVP designation. Our joint customers will continue to benefit from his expertise and depth of knowledge about Sitecore products and services.”
