Microsoft named Matt Gordon as a Most Valuable Professional for the sixth year in a row.
DAYTON, OH, July 27, 2023 – Centric Consulting, an international business and technology consulting firm, announced today that Matt Gordon has been named a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) for the sixth year in a row.
The Microsoft MVP program is a global initiative that acknowledges technology experts and community leaders who actively contribute to technical communities through their knowledge-sharing efforts. These individuals play a vital role in supporting developers and IT communities worldwide, helping them learn, build and use Microsoft products.
Gordon is one of nearly 400 data platform experts worldwide to earn this distinction. For the last six years as a Microsoft Data Platform MVP, Gordon has continued to be an advocate and mentor within the Microsoft data platform community by sharing his knowledge, generating awareness and fostering connections that support the adoption and learning of Microsoft products. Gordon also contributes to Microsoft’s success by providing feedback and recommendations for product improvements directly to the company.
“It’s an honor to be named a Microsoft MVP again,” said Gordon. “How businesses migrate to and leverage the cloud is evolving, and it’s exciting to be at the forefront. I am passionate about Microsoft products and bringing awareness and knowledge to the data platform community.”
Gordon has supported critical systems using SQL Server and managed dozens of implementations since 2000. He leads the Lexington Data Technology Group and is a frequent domestic and international speaker, having spoken at more than 20 events this year, and is a co-author of the book, Pro Database Migration to Azure: Data Modernization for the Enterprise.
As a Senior Architect for Centric Consulting’s Louisville-based team, Gordon works with clients to migrate their data and apps to the cloud, make their data estate operate efficiently, and find the right solutions within the Microsoft Data Platform.
“We are very proud of Matt’s continued work as a Microsoft MVP,” said Mike Kaiser, Data and Analytics Practice Lead. “His dedication to the technical community and expertise in Microsoft products make him an invaluable asset to our team and our clients.”
