Crestwood’s Rockstars Boast Six New Acumatica MVP Awards for 2020

Crestwood MVP award winners

Sure, Tom Brady just scored his fifth Super Bowl MVP award. However, Acumatica recently announced its latest slate of Acumatica MVPs, and the Crestwood Associates team brought home six MVPs! So, who’s the real G.O.A.T.* here? This marks the second consecutive year in which Crestwood was the most awarded company; i.e. no other Acumatica partner has more MVPs on their staff. I smell a dynasty brewing!

Best Acumatica Partner?

Acumatica recognizes “MVPs” (Most Valuable Professionals) each year to celebrate, “passionate community members that are committed to helping others with the Acumatica product and platform.” And helping is exactly what we all strive to do.

Several of the below-listed MVPs worked on the Redmond Implementation. Read about how they helped Redmond here!

We don’t write this blog today to be braggadocious; we simply want to recognize the hard work that our team puts in every single day for our customers. Let’s take a look at our all-star MVP lineup!

Colleen SColleen Schils

When Colleen first found out she’d won, she said to us, “WOW – I didn’t know I could get nominations.  Very unexpected award!” Colleen has been with Crestwood for over 5 years, and is one of our crowd-favorite Client Account Managers.  She helps her clients succeed with their Acumatica system.  We’re not surprised at all that she won.

Tiffany BTiffany Bennett

Tiffany has been with Crestwood for 7 years, but has close to 25 years of ERP consulting experience under her belt. She’s an expert in implementations, installation/upgrades, management, system selection, consulting, training, and report writing and with her diverse industry experience in technology-related firms, medical companies, hotel industries, wholesale distributors, service-related industries, and government agencies. She truly is a super star!

Mike GMike Gifford

We were lucky to have acquired Mike Gifford when Crestwood merged with SSYH back in 2016. He has over 20 years of experience in development, system design and analysis, and a whole lot of creative ideas to help our clients; for example, Mike has utilized the Power BI integration capabilities with Acumatica to provide customers with unique perspectives on their revenue generation and sales performance. Mike is based in our Florida office and can show you some neat alligator paraphernalia to prove it!

Guillermo PGuillermo Pineda

Always a client-favorite, Guillermo brings extensive experience deploying and developing custom solutions for Acumatica clients.  Guillermo is another Floridian MVP with over 10 years of development experience, and this is his second year winning this award.

Melissa BMelissa Blassingame

All of our team members are incredible, but Melissa Blassingame is one of our Acumatica heavy hitters. We attribute many successful Acumatica projects to her, from her deep understanding of client needs, to identifying the right solutions; we know why everyone loves working with her.  Melissa has over 15 years of experience in ERP, with certifications for implementing every module under the sun. This is her FOURTH consecutive MVP win.

Mike Aichinger

Our resident Tom Brady is Mike Aichinger. This is his 5th consecutive year as an Acumatica MVP. Mike is the engine behind our innovative implementation methodology. With 20+ years in the industry, Mike has an extensive and varied skillset that spans consulting, implementations, project management, project accounting, training (Master Level Certification), and so much more.

We could not be prouder to have so many incredible MVPs, not to mention the network of terrific support that is the rest of our team. Our goal is not to win awards; our goal is to provide the best possible support we can for growing businesses. Period. Accolades are just a nice side effect of achieving that goal.

*G.O.A.T. stands for “Greatest of All Time.”
