TBG CEO John Berndt Wins Sitecore "Most Valuable Professional" Award Again
Elite Distinction Awarded for Exceptional Contributions to the Sitecore Ecosystem
TBG (The Berndt Group), www.berndtgroup.net, a national digital agency and Sitecore Gold partner headquartered in Baltimore, Maryland, today announced that CEO John Berndt has been named a “Most Valuable Professional (MVP)” in Strategy by Sitecore®, the global leader in experience management software. John Berndt was one of only 39 Strategy MVPs worldwide to be named a Sitecore MVP this year.
Now it its 12th year, Sitecore’s MVP program recognizes individual technology, strategy, and commerce 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.
“At TBG, we’re very proud of our input and involvement with the Sitecore community, and I really appreciate receiving this award and distinction for several years in a row,” said TBG’s CEO John Berndt. “TBG has also maintained its status as a Gold partner with Sitecore, and we’re excited that the TBG-Sitecore partnership, along with the MVP distinction and TBG’s Gold partner status, results in such excellent outcomes for both companies. We look forward to furthering our impact in the Sitecore community, especially with regards to thought leadership and the extended marketing feature set that allows Web personalization, multichannel engagement automation, and advanced analytics and tracking of user behavior. And finally, we’re very excited to launch sites on Sitecore 9 this year!”
With experience as a leading developer of CMS-driven sites since 2002, TBG specializes in the design and implementation of large, significant websites and complex digital ecosystems. The firm’s development efforts are currently focused on Sitecore, where TBG is regarded as a top Sitecore developer—as evidenced by MVP and Sitecore Gold Partner status. TBG is a very active voice for Sitecore, specifically on the topics of operationalizing personalization and personalization/analytics strategy, and the firm has implemented a number of large-scale and complex sites to date in Sitecore.
“The Sitecore MVP awards recognize and honor those individuals who make substantial contributions to our loyal community of partners and customers,” said Pieter Brinkman, Sitecore Senior Director of Technical Marketing. “MVPs consistently set a standard of excellence by delivering technical chops, enthusiasm, and a commitment to giving back to the Sitecore community. They truly understand and deliver on the power of the Sitecore Experience Platform to create personalized brand experiences for their consumers, driving revenue and customer loyalty.”
The Sitecore Experience Platform™ combines web content management, omnichannel digital delivery, insights into customer activity and engagement, and strategic digital marketing tools into a single, unified platform. Sitecore Experience Commerce™ 9, released in January 2018, is the only cloud-enabled platform that natively integrates content and commerce so brands can fully personalize and individualize the end-to-end shopping experience before, during, and after the transaction. Both platforms capture in real time every minute interaction—and intention—that customers and prospects have with a brand across digital and offline channels. The result is that Sitecore customers are able to use the platform to engage with prospects and customers in a highly personalized manner, earning long-term customer loyalty.
