April 11th, 2012
NavigationArts’ Content Management Systems (CMS) Practice Director, Alan Gallauresi, has received Sitecore’s “2011 Most Valuable Professional Award”. The Sitecore MVP Award honors the most active Sitecore community members from around the world who provide online and offline expertise that enriches the community experience. Potential candidates are reviewed by an independent panel of Sitecore employees from technical, product marketing, documentation, and executive roles. NavigationArts’ Technology lead and Partner, Dustin Collis, was the firm’s first Sitecore MVP in 2010.
“It’s an honor to be recognized amongst such a skilled group of colleagues in the vibrant Sitecore community,” said Gallauresi. “I’m grateful to them, as well as to NavigationArts, whose passion for Sitecore has resulted in projects that extend the breadth of knowledge and skill across the entire team – the true recipient of this award.”
MVP Gallauresi has been active in the CMS and portal space for the past 12 years. He has worked on many notable projects at NavigationArts including two of this year’s Sitecore category winners; Mid-America Apartment Communities and PFC Energy. Gallauresi also led sophisticated Sitecore implementations for Breitbart, HealthSouth, and National Aquarium. Additionally, he guided the NavigationArts development team in earning all four Sitecore partner certifications. The MVP Award recognizes his work in the Sitecore developer community during 2011.
Gallauresi shared his Sitecore expertise in a published whitepaper entitled “Paywall Websites: A Sitecore CMS Solution,” which is available for download. His second whitepaper focuses on ways in which to optimize Sitecore functionality and will be available this Spring.
MVPs are given exclusive technical resources, such as full access to the Sitecore Developer Network. Winners of this award also receive early access to Sitecore news, opportunities, and exclusive events, both locally and internationally.
