Steve Kraynak MVP

1 March 2024

Fantastic news for Leap Day: we are very pleased to announce US head honcho Steve Kraynak has been awarded Microsoft’s Most Valuable Professional (MVP) award for Excel.  This award recognises exceptional technical community leaders from around the world who voluntarily share their high quality, real world expertise with others.  Microsoft MVPs are a highly select group of experts representing technology's best and brightest who share a deep commitment to community and a willingness to help others.

Worldwide, there are over 100 million participants in technical communities; of these participants, there are c.3,200 active Microsoft MVPs.  In Excel, we believe there are approximately 130 that have received this award – and we presently have three of them here at SumProduct!

We certainly think Steve deserves it.  After more than a decade as a Product Manager for the Excel team at Microsoft, where he directly impacted many features in Excel, including new worksheet functions like IFS and TEXTJOIN, Data from Picture, Excel for Mac, user experience improvements like Smooth Scrolling, and many others, Steve has continued to share his enthusiasm and expertise on all things PivotTable, Power Query and Mac Excel on both LinkedIn and on this very website – check out his latest Friday blog on Excel for Mac here.

Welcome to the madhouse, Steve!  Hopefully, Tim Heng and Liam Bastick can rejoin you in July!
