The list is taken from the official Microsoft CRM MVP site which you can view here
I’m not sure why but the CRM MVP website is terrible to use, which seems slightly ironic. The site has loads of urls which are broken, why?
There are 55 CRM MVP’s with four new ones added in the last MVP update. I don’t know if the list is in order but all the new MVP’s were added to the end.
If you are wondering what exactly an MVP is you can find about the Microsoft MVP here and the bit below is from the website on this page, which basically explains the criteria for people becoming MVP’s
Becoming an MVP
The MVP Award recognizes exceptional technical community leaders from around the world who voluntarily share their deep, real-world knowledge about Microsoft technologies with others.
Potential MVPs are nominated by other technical community members, current and former MVPs, and Microsoft personnel who have noted their leadership and their willingness and ability to help others make the most of their Microsoft technology.
To receive the Microsoft MVP Award, MVP nominees undergo a rigorous review process. A panel that includes members of the MVP team and Microsoft product groups evaluates each nominee’s technical expertise and voluntary community contributions for the past 12 months. The panel considers the quality, quantity, and level of impact of the MVP nominee’s contributions. Active MVPs receive the same level of scrutiny as other new candidates each year.
MVPs are independent of Microsoft, with separate opinions and perspectives, and are able to represent the views of the community members with whom they engage every day.

If you are wondering why it’s useful to know who are the CRM MVP’s are, if you Look at the list of CRM MVP’s, you realise what an impact all of the MVP’s have on the CRM community, they are responsible for most of the great CRM blogs, have written the most useful CRM tools (well Tanguy certainly has), authored the CRM books and have answered 1000 of questions of the forums. A lot of the CRM MVP’s are doing all of the above and probably more.
It’s definitely worth going to look at the site because it gives a quick overview of each MVP, the links below take you to their full biography (if the links work). I was looking at the list to see if there were any of the MVP’s whose blog/website I don’t currently read because I might be missing out on some useful CRM nuggets.
it would be useful to create a list of the CRM MVP blogs and maybe I will get round to that, amusing I have a list of some of the CRM MVP blogs, well worth subscribing to the blogs on the list.
