Veeam Vanguard 2023 – 8th time in row!

Hi, last weekend, I received a great news from Rick Vanover. I have been selected for the Veeam Vanguard program for the 8th year! Honored and proud to be selected as a Veeam Vanguard 2023 then congratulations to all the returning and new Vanguard! 🙂

What is “Veeam Vanguard” program?


Veeam Vanguard program:

A Veeam Vanguard represents Veeam brand to the highest level in many of the different technology communities in which they engage. Since 2015, Veeam Software has considered relevant to promote the values of Veeam (understand the products and are closest peers in IT). This program is both much like other award programs you may be familiar with yet different in their own way (for example Microsoft MVP, VMware vExpert Cisco Champion community). Some Vanguards are bloggers, partners, customers, and influencers others are very active users (Veeam forum), others are Spiceworks where users share content and answers about Veeam, etc. Veeam Vanguards are people who embrace Veeam the best in their respective communities. They come from all backgrounds and are spread across different products. The best way to follow Veeam Vanguards is to follow the official Twitter account @VeeamVanguard and hashtag #VeeamVanguard.
