Hedgehog Development Announces Four Sitecore MVPs Included in 2015 Class

Long Island, NY, – Hedgehog Development, a premier Sitecore implementation partner, announced that four of their employees have been named a “Technology Most Valuable Professional (MVP)” by Sitecore, the global leader in customer experience management. There are more than 26,000 developers in Sitecore’s global network. They and only 137 other people worldwide have been named a Sitecore technology MVP this year.

Now in its ninth year, Sitecore’s MVP program recognizes individual technology and digital strategy advocates who share their Sitecore passion and expertise to offer positive customer experiences that drive business results. The Sitecore Technology 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.

Hedgehog’s 4 MVPs are now well known in the Sitecore community and are located in Hedgehog’s New York offices as well as their new Bulgarian headquarters. These MVPs include Lead Solutions Architect and now 3 time MVP, Charles Turano; Development Manager and 5 time Sitecore MVP, Sean Kearney; Solutions Architect and 2 time Sitecore MVP, Sean Holmesby; and Solutions Developer and first time MVP, Nikola Gotsev.

This is another reassurance of the terrific developers and how we operate here, at Hedgehog Development. We’ve worked very hard to cultivate a culture that promotes an open flow of ideas.” Said Dan Galvez, Co-Founder and CEO. “We build our culture off of the example shown by Charlie, Sean H., Sean K., and Nikola. These individuals are perfectly embody how our team strives to push the envelope of what we have come to expect and share that new knowledge with others. By working together we all improve, and so continue to create great results for our clients.”

Hedgehog has a lot to celebrate. The previous year was marked with tremendous growth and success. Already in 2015 they have opened a new Bulgarian office to meet the continued demand. With this global growth comes the need to establish a Hedgehog culture that would resonate no matter where the person is. This is a company that always strives to exceed expectations, create something that is unique, powerful, and rises to any of their client’s needs.

“We are grateful for the leadership, expertise and ongoing contributions that the Hedgehog team has made to the Sitecore community,” said Lars Fløe Nielsen, Co-Founder and senior vice president, technical marketing, Sitecore. “Nikola, Sean Holmesby, Sean Kearney, and Charlie Turano have demonstrated mastery of our technology and exemplifies the spirit of Sitecore.”
