Meet the 2024 Salesforce MVPs and Hall of Fame Members

Codey, Cloudy, and Ruth celebrate the new Salesforce MVPs
Join us in celebration as we recognize these outstanding members of our community.

Let’s celebrate the new Salesforce MVP and Salesforce MVP Hall of Fame Class of 2024 and learn how these outstanding Trailblazers help others succeed in the Salesforce ecosystem.

We’re thrilled to officially announce the new members of the 2024 class of Salesforce MVPs and Salesforce MVP Hall of Fame, and congratulate the returning members. This year, we received nominations from over 50 countries.

Over a 5-month period, the Trailblazer Community team, 50+ 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 changemaker in the Trailblazer Community than by nominating them to become a Salesforce MVP.

Who are Salesforce MVPs?

This year marks our 13th year recognizing those united by a passion for innovation and love for Salesforce. Salesforce MVPs embody three key characteristics that influence their success: expertise, leadership, and generosity.

Salesforce MVPs are critical to driving success with Salesforce at their companies and in their communities. They’re top-notch product experts and community leaders 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 help shape Salesforce product roadmaps, answer countless questions in the community and on social media, write helpful blog posts, lead Trailblazer Community Groups, submit presentation ideas, share best practices, and much, much more.

In addition to announcing the new and renewed Salesforce MVPs, we’re thrilled to announce new inductees into the Salesforce MVP Hall of Fame.

What is the Salesforce MVP Hall of Fame?

The Salesforce MVP Hall of Fame is a special community of our most dedicated long-time Salesforce MVPs. Salesforce MVP Hall of Fame members have been renewed as Salesforce MVPs for a total of five years and have consistently showcased the program’s pillars of expertise, leadership, and generosity. This special group of Salesforce MVPs has dedicated themselves to the Trailblazer Community in deep and meaningful ways for many years.

In fact, the Salesforce MVP Program was created in 2010 to recognize the incredible impact many in this group were already making, whether it was breaking the leaderboard by answering 100,000 questions in the Trailblazer Community, blazing trails for women by starting the first Women in Tech Community Group, or so much more.

Salesforce MVP Hall of Fame members are the ultimate connectors. You’ll find them mentoring and guiding newcomers making a career transition to Salesforce, and they’ve been helping others solve complex problems, even before we had an online space to do so. Many of the Salesforce MVP Hall of Fame members that you see below are offering their time and knowledge free of cost to nonprofits and universities around the world. They’re creating organizations to amplify diversity and inclusion in the tech industry and are supporting underserved communities. These individuals truly exemplify what it means to be a Trailblazer.
