Concentrix Catalyst, a Sitecore Certified Platinum Partner, is excited to announce that four of its team members, Ozell McBride, Rashmy Patwari, Madhu Anbalagan and Jeff Cram, have been named Sitecore Most Valuable Professionals for 2021.

The Sitecore MVP Award is given to distinguished individuals within the Sitecore community. It is categorized into four areas: Technology, Strategy, Commerce, and Ambassador.

A 10+ year veteran of Concentrix Catalyst, Ozell McBride currently serves as a Solutions Architect and Manager in the Sitecore practice. He has given virtual presentations to Sitecore User Group meetups throughout the world on topics including Sitecore’s Marketing Automation and the installation of Sitecore 9.3. He is also active within the Sitecore development community, explaining topics on his blog Sitecore Tidbits and sharing his knowledge on the Sitecore StackExchange.

An accomplished Sitecore developer, Rashmy Patwari was given the opportunity to present at Sitecore Symposium 2020. Her talk, Dr. House’s Length-of-Stay Dashboard, focused on using Sitecore Cortex Engine integrated with a machine learning server running predictive analysis. She has been a Senior Software Engineer with Concentrix Catalyst since 2019.

A two-year Sitecore MVP, Madhu Anbalagan has served as a Senior Software Engineer at Concentrix Catalyst since 2018. This year’s award is her second Sitecore Technology MVP recognition. She is known as an expert in implementing Sitecore Forms. She has presented on this topic in person at the New England Sitecore User Group Meetup, as well as virtually for Sitecore User Groups in Ecuador, BulgariaDelhi, and Bangalore (both in India).

2021 is the fourth year in a row that Jeff, a Concentrix Catalyst Partner, has been designated a Sitecore MVP. Jeff has spoken on panels at Sitecore Symposium, Sitecore’s must-attend annual conference for the Sitecore community, and he frequently delivers workshops across the US on how organizations can best create connected digital experiences for their customers. Jeff also co-founded the New England Sitecore User Group.

The Sitecore MVP program honors more than 300 individuals who have gone above and beyond to support the Sitecore community with educational product content and engagements, in addition to offering invaluable early user feedback on products in development. Now in its 14th year, the MVP program represents professionals from across 35 countries and more than 140 companies who provide the human element critical to driving innovations for Sitecore solutions.

Sitecore selects MVPs with an objective evaluation process that weighs their understanding of the Sitecore platform and commitment to the community. Community engagement is measured on the volume and quality of content shared with customers and developers through thought leadership, chat groups, and user forums. These select individuals also engage directly with Sitecore, offering early assessment of new products before they come to market.

Join Madhu and Sitecore developers all over the world for Sitecore’s 4th Annual Virtual Developer Day.
