Microsoft MVPs

AddIn365 is delighted to announce each of our 3 in-house Microsoft MVPs; Suzy Dean (3rd year), Wes Hackett (9th year) and Paul Schaeflein (11th year) have had their MVP status renewed by Microsoft for 2021-22.

The MVP Award cannot be studied for, it is awarded by Microsoft Product Groups directly. Of a million Office 365 practitioners globally, there are less 200 people awarded for their elite expertise. AddIn365 are home to three of them, making us an obvious choice for any organisation wanting to work with a team of experts. 

Microsoft Most Valuable Professionals, or MVPs, are technology experts who passionately share their knowledge with the community. They are always on the “bleeding edge” and have an unstoppable urge to get their hands on new, exciting technologies. They have unrivalled knowledge of Microsoft products and services, while also being able to bring together diverse platforms, products and solutions, to solve real world problems. MVPs make up a global community of over 4,000 technical experts and community leaders across 90 countries/regions and are driven by their passion, community spirit, and quest for knowledge. Above all and in addition to their amazing technical abilities, MVPs are always willing to help others – and that’s what sets them apart.
