The company recently announced that team member John Rappel, GeekHive Technical Lead, had been named a "Most Valuable Professional (MVP)" in technology by Sitecore, the global leader in experience management software.

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.

"As a longstanding Sitecore Gold Implementation Partner," said Jay Oliver, GeekHive's CTO, "we've worked on many major Sitecore builds over the last 10 plus years. We pride ourselves on tackling the unorthodox builds others shy away from, and John Rappel is always a leader is helping us strategically craft the best approach to these types of multi-faceted engagements, benefiting our clients greatly. We're thrilled to see John recognized as a Sitecore Technical MVP. He's earned it, not just with the work he's done for GeekHive's Fortune 500 clients, including leading a major technical initiative for a Fortune 25 client, but with his contributions to the Sitecore community at large. He's dedicated to sharing his expertise and is always willing to support other Sitecore developers to deliver their best work."
