We are ecstatic to announce that two Perficient colleagues have been honored as Optimizely Most Valuable Professionals (OMVP). Huge congratulations to David Lewis and John Dymond!

David and John are two of only eight total individuals selected as OMVPs in 2023. Perficient now boasts six of the 89 total OMVPs worldwide!

Optimizely MVP Program

In 2007, EPiServer (now Optimizely) started a program called the Most Valuable Professionals Program. The program was created to thank active members of the Optimizely community for their valued contributions. Now celebrating 16 years of OMVPs, the program has experienced incredible growth and has welcomed members from over 40 organizations and 15 countries worldwide.

MVPs are nominated by others in the community and are selected based on criteria evaluating the candidate’s engagement in the Optimizely community, their project involvement, and various other factors.

Once chosen as an OMVP, members receive exclusive status with Optimizely and its partners. OMVPs are given additional benefits, such as access to new product features, an audience with Optimizely leadership, and membership-only events and activities.


David and John are both Directors of Optimizely here at Perficient. They join an elite circle of current Perficient OMVPs including Daved Artemik, Alex Harris, Ritu Madan, and Naveed Ul-Haq.
