7Summits is super-charging their award-winning Salesforce product development team and nailed it by hiring Salesforce MVP Phil Weinmeister. The Carnegie Mellon University Graduate holds 10 Salesforce certifications, and is the author of Practical Salesforce.com Development Without Code: Customizing Salesforce on the Force.com Platform. The software industry manual holds a 4.9 star rating on Amazon.

During an interview at 7Summits corporate offices in Milwaukee, Phil expressed his excitement on becoming a Salesforce Product sherpa. “I chose to join the 7Summits team for their deep social/communities expertise, engaging culture and dedication to developing innovative products on the Salesforce platform.” He went on to talk about his role as Senior Director of Product Management, saying “the leadership team has a clear and captivating vision for success and I’m extremely excited to be a part of the 7Summits journey.”

7Summits made headlines last month with the launch of PartnerFirst, the first Partner Relationship Management (PRM) template for Salesforce’s new community platform, Lightning Bolt. By leveraging the deep industry knowledge of Salesforce partners like 7Summits, Salesforce Lightning Bolt offers pre-built community templates, curated for specific industries and business processes.

“We’re committed in our role as leaders in digital transformation and our focus on Salesforce product development. Phil is a big part of that plan, and an exciting addition to industry thought leaders here at 7Summits,” said 7Summits CEO Paul Stillmank.

In addition to PartnerFirst, 7Summits offers templates and accelerators for customers and employees, enabling even companies with modest budgets to leverage the powerful outcomes online communities provide.

Companies need to be able to quickly create and deploy industry-specific experiences to collaborate and connect with their customers. By leveraging the power of Salesforce Lightning Bolt, we’re empowering our partners to package their expertise into new solutions that accelerate our customers’ time to market.
