Matt Velic Joins SQLPeople

Brian and I are excited to announce that Matt Velic is joining the SQL People team as a Community Evangelist! We originally hired Matt to complete a redesign of the site, but quickly realized that Matt’s skills go well beyond SQL Server and web design. We love the ideas he is adding around community and marketing. His passion and energy for the SQL People project helps to keep Brian and I energized as well!

We paid Matt for his work on the web site but it quickly became obvious that Matt was prepared to invest a tremendous amount of time and energy beyond what he had been paid to do. And his ideas have been invaluable. So Brian and I talked it over, and we decided to invite Matt to join the team. Welcome aboard, Matt!
