Kayee’s Robbert Hock Wins 2017 Sitecore “Most Valuable Professional” Award
Elite distinction awarded for exceptional contributions to the Sitecore community
Millingen aan de Rijn, The Netherlands — January, 31st, 2017 — Kayee, today announced that Robbert Hock, owner of Kayee and freelance Sitecore Technology Specialist has been named a “Most Valuable Professional (MVP)” by Sitecore®, the global leader in experience management software. Robbert was one of only 215 Technologist worldwide to be named a Sitecore MVP this year.
Now it its eleventh year, Sitecore’s MVP program recognizes individual technology, digital strategy, commerce, and cloud 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.
This is the 8th time that I’ve received the Sitecore MVP Technology Specialist title, out of the eleven years that the Sitecore MVP title has been awarded. Wow! The past year has been great for me in terms of the Sitecore Community activities: Co-organizing the successful SUGCON Europe 2016, organizing the Dutch Sitecore User Group, being part of fantastic other off and online Sitecore events. Since I started working with Sitecore in 2008, I’ve been so passionate about Sitecore and connecting the Sitecore community, that even 10 years later I’ll keep pushing myself. I’ll be part of the organization again of SUGCON Europe 2017 and we’ll be trying to set new boundaries there as well, so make sure you attend it from May 18th – May 19th 2017 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands!
