Announcing the new SQL MCM Program Manager

I am truly happy to announce that Microsoft Learning has hired a new SQL MCM Program Manager to keep things moving forward with our recent program changes and continue to expand the program’s value and impact:  

Robert Davis (blog | twitter | linkedin) is the new SQL Server Microsoft Certified Master Program Manager!

There are many reasons why I’m happy about this hiring decision, but I’ll stick with my top three reasons here:

  1. Robert is an active and tireless community contributor, author and speaker.  His community interactions are frequent, consistent and high quality.  I also appreciate that he helps people on both internal Microsoft and external facing forums. 
  2. He is a Microsoft Certified Master with a deep understanding of the program scope (depth and breadth).  He also understands that while the program is elite it should not be elitist.  As I’ve said several times before, there are many “uncertified masters” out there and the program has only just started to reach them.
  3. Robert is also incredibly responsive and focused on taking care of the community and ensuring that people’s hard-earned efforts are recognized and appreciated. 

I think Robert will take things well beyond where I left them and I’m looking forward to seeing all the great things that I know he will do.  

Please join me in welcoming Robert Davis to his new role!
