We’re thrilled to officially announce the new members of the 2023 class of Salesforce MVPs and congratulate the returning Salesforce MVPs. This year, we received more nominations than ever before—2,400+ nominations (from over 50 countries!).
Over a 4-month period, the Trailblazer Community team, 65+ internal Salesforce stakeholders, and current Salesforce MVPs spent over 1,000 hours reviewing every nomination submitted—to ensure a thorough and inclusive process. Read more about the Salesforce MVP program pillars and nomination criteria we use when evaluating nominees.
We’d like to extend our gratitude to everyone who submitted a nomination—there’s truly no better way to say “thank you” to a mentor, colleague, or change-maker in the Trailblazer Community than by nominating them to become a Salesforce MVP!
Who are Salesforce MVPs?
This year marks our 12th year recognizing Salesforce MVPs! United by a passion for innovation and love for the Salesforce Platform, Salesforce MVPs embody three key characteristics that drive their success: expertise, leadership, and generosity.
Salesforce MVPs are dedicated to helping fellow Trailblazers navigate their career journeys, solve complex business problems, get certified, make game-changing connections, and even land new jobs. They answer countless questions in the community and on social media, write helpful blogs, lead Trailblazer Community Groups, submit presentation ideas, share best practices, and much, much more!

Salesforce MVP renewal process
Salesforce MVPs are not automatically renewed after serving 1 or more years in the program. In fact, renewed Salesforce MVPs go through the same evaluation process as the new Salesforce MVPs we’re announcing today.
Salesforce MVPs are eligible for renewal if they demonstrate continued leadership, expertise, and generosity, as well as engagement in the Trailblazer Community and their local communities throughout the year. Get to know the 88 renewed Salesforce MVPs here.
