What a great way to start the new decade, here are your 2020 Nutanix Technology Champions (NTC). This group of IT professionals, are from every cloud, application and technology group. Their diverse backgrounds, experiences, and expertise help their organizations and the virtualization community to challenge the status quo.

Last year we introduced the NTC Elite designation and this year I am excited to add one more person to that list. The power of mentoring and encouraging others to strive for more is what being part of a community is all about. NTC Elite is for those that have also earned their NPX designation. 

This past year has been opportunity for us to see other grow, learn and get out of their comfort zone. From blogging, running user groups and being fully immersed in our .NEXT conference experience.  

I'm looking forward to another exciting year and learning from many of you. Take the time to get to know one another and congratulate each other on social media, use the hashtag #NutanixNTC and keep the conversation going.

👉 One more thing - How can I get on the list? Don't worry things don't end here. Connect with me on the community site @aluciani and let's work together in learning how to get yourself positioned for NTC status in 2021.

Here are your 2020 Nutanix Technology Champions (NTC)
