Nashers – Microsoft ‘Most Valuable Professionals’

April 16, 2020

From 2011 to 2020, there are four excellent Nashers, who have received ‘Most Valuable Professionals’ – a coveted award for IT engineers. They have proven Nashers not only strive for NashTech’s success but also endeavour to build a thriving global IT industry.

NashTech can grow so successfully today thanks to our amazing people, who are called Nashers. Each person is a unique colour that contributes to the vibrant spectrum of NashTech.

Among them, there are four individuals with different characteristics, different jobs, and different roles. Together they join hands to create a wonderful working place that is both pleasant and professional at NashTech.

Their vivid colour has radiated positive energy to all Nashers around. Encouraging others during the work process raises the intensity of practice, strengthens the relationships among Nashers, and lets others know that their hard work and team-first attitude does not go unnoticed. This quartet has made great efforts to create a strong and united NashTech collective.

Although they have many differences, they just have one goal. That is for Vietnam to become the World’s Leading Technology Destination. The quartet aims to keep contributing to the domestic IT community by connecting more people with common interests in advanced technologies, and actively sharing more practical experience with the community.

Beyond NashTech, they constantly help the Vietnam IT community with their dynamic activities, especially with regards to Microsoft. Meanwhile, the four Nashers are “big brothers” of others at our company, who are willing to support and encourage juniors to develop themselves. NashTech is immensely proud of having them in our team.

Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVPs) is a challenging award offered by Microsoft which is well known, but very difficult to receive. An individual’s contributions made in the previous 12 months must go through a rigorous validation process before being handed this certificate. Once Microsoft thinks that contribution is important and valuable, he or she will be awarded an MVP. Microsoft introduced MVPs in 1993, it was first given to 37 people. Today, there are more than 4,000 MVPs worldwide.

For more than two decades, the Microsoft Most Valuable Professional Award is our way of saying “Thanks!” to outstanding community leaders.

Microsoft MVP

We could not be successful without such an incredibly valuable and engaged group of people working with us.
