The Salesforce MVP program has been around for several years now. It grows in numbers with every class of MVPs announced, and yet, it’s still a highly elusive, much coveted title. Salesforce MVPS are true trailblazers, helping millions of others learn more about Salesforce, solve challenges and grow their own careers. According to Salesforce, there are 4 main characteristics of a Salesforce MVP.

Salesforce MVP Characteristics

Salesforce MVPExpertise:  Salesforce MVPs maintain a strong, current understanding of the Salesforce products and the Salesforce Ohana. They help drive new features, and help others gain knowledge so they too, can achieve more.

Generosity:  Salesforce MVPs give so much back to the Salesforce Ohana, but they also give back to their local communities, and those is need of help world wide through other efforts.

Leadership: Salesforce MVPs consistently find ways to innovate and leave a clear trail for others to follow. MVPs Take on mentorship roles to help others in the Salesforce ecosystem succeed through writing of blogs, answering questions in the community, organizing and leading user groups and regional community-led events, and even one-on-one phone calls, so much more.

Advocacy: Salesforce MVPs are advocates for Salesforce, and it’s mission. But actions speak louder than words, and MVPs speak loudly, in word and action! They live by and demonstrate daily, the same core values of trust, growth, innovation and equality, that have made Salesforce the great organization it is today.


In addition to the 28 new MVPs, Salesforce also proudly welcomed 102 returning MVPs. For the complete list of who returned for another year as an MVP with this class, in addition to those inducted into the MVP Hall of Fame, read the Salesforce blog.
