Awarded Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) 2013



Today I received an e-mail from Microsoft and I am delighted to share that I have been awarded Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) 2013 for the sixth consecutive year.

Third year as an Exchange MVP.

I am honored to receive this award again and I appreciate everyone that reads my blog and keeps up with me on twitter (@petsch). I will strive to keep contributing to the community and hope that my contributions helps you out in some way.

From the e-mail I received:

Dear Peter Schmidt,

Congratulations! We are pleased to present you with the 2013 Microsoft® MVP Award! This award is given to exceptional technical community leaders who actively share their high quality, real world expertise with others. We appreciate your outstanding contributions in Exchange Server technical communities during the past year.

Microsoft MVPs are not Microsoft employees, rather independent technology enthusiasts who are active in communities on and offline.  We are experts and professionals across diverse subjects that all share a common use of Microsoft technologies to solve everyday real-world problems.
