Microsoft Recognizes Intellinet SQL Server Expert Geoff Hiten as MVP

July 02, 2015

Microsoft MVPIntellinet, a management consulting and award-winning Microsoft-centric technology services firm, announced today that expert Geoff Hiten has been recognized with a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) Award.

The MVP program recognizes exceptional technology community leaders from around the world who actively share their high quality, real world expertise with users and Microsoft.  With fewer than 4,000 awardees worldwide, Microsoft MVPs represent a highly select group of experts. 

Returning as a MVP for the twelfth consecutive year, Geoff Hiten specializes in highly available, highly scalable SQL Server database systems.  He is a recognized speaker and active member of the Professional Association for SQL Server (PASS).

Microsoft MVP Award candidates must be nominated and undergo a rigorous evaluation process. Before a final selection is made, a panel of Microsoft team members review each nominee's community contributions for the past year. To maintain the integrity of this prestigious program, MVPs must reapply each year and undergo the same level of scrutiny to maintain MVP status. 

"Intellinet was founded on the principle of helping others succeed by solving complex problems. Not only has Geoff achieved personal excellence and consistently delivered within the organization, but this award affirms his desire to also help others reach their fullest potential," stated Michael Lignos, senior vice president of consulting operations at Intellinet. "We are truly honored to have Geoff on our team and contributing to the SQL Server community."

About the Microsoft MVP Award Program

Microsoft began the MVP Awards as a way to recognize members of the general public who devoted their time and technical expertise to helping users in various online technical forums. Over time, the program evolved, and awards are given to members of technical communities worldwide for their contributions to communities including third-party Web sites, user groups, blogs and wikis.
