Konabos, a digital customer experience consultancy, has added composability evangelist and former Sitecore CTO John West to its team as senior customer advocate. West will focus on helping customers and other agencies in supporting a composable digital future.
West moved into the content management space in 2000 as CTO of Sitecore, helping establish Sitecore USA. Konabos officials said he is Sitecore’s only Lifetime MVP.
West left Sitecore and embarked on a consulting career with various agencies and vendors.
“John is a hero to many in the Sitecore community,” Akshay Sura, partner at Konabos, said in a statement. “His early transition towards composable approaches was a key catalyst for our transition in that direction around 2019. We’re over the moon that he’s joining the Konabos team. John’s addition will strengthen us, our customers and the agencies we coach.”
