Blend Interactive is excited to recognize Bob Davidson, our director of development, for his selection as one of 2022’s OMVP (Optimizely Most Valuable Professional) developers.

Bob is one of just 13 individuals selected this year, and one of only six selected for submissions and work in development.

Optimizely’s OMVP program is designed to recognize those who contribute knowledge and expertise to the technical community. More than that, it’s exclusive. Only 77 people are currently named OMVP. 

"Being selected as an OMVP has been a great honor,” says Bob Davidson. “I'm looking forward to connecting with the brightest minds in the Optimizely community and gaining a deeper insight into the platform and its future.”

OMVPs are nominated by their peers within the Optimizely community. According to Optimizely:

(OMVPs) are recognized by their level of engagement, creativity, and interactions as mentors within the community. 

Bob’s selection as OMVP extends Blend’s history with the award. Blend has had an OMVP (then EMVP) on staff every year since founder Deane Barker was named the first North American EMVP in 2012. As a Gold Partner, Blend continues to not only guide projects with a dozen years of Optimizely experience, but also guide the Optimizely community itself through thought leadership and community submissions.

Bob insisted on wearing this crown, but we know he'll be a kind OMVP leader.
