The 2015 CRMUG All Star Award recipients are Adam Rose of ImageSoft, Inc., Kylie Kiser of Edelman Financial, Chris Cognetta of Tribridge, and Gretchen Opferkew of PowerObjects.

“CRMUG is fortunate to have dedicated Members in our community like Adam, Kylie, Chris, and Gretchen.  We all benefit from the Dynamics CRM knowledge they have because they share it generously with the entire community as chapter leaders, Collaborate participants, webinar speakers, and more,” said Tony Stein, CRMUG Director.  “Congratulations and thank you, Adam, Kylie, Chris, and Gretchen!”

The 2015 Chapter Leader of the Year award recipient is Mike Olean, who leads CRMUG’s Carolinas (Charlotte) Chapter. Chapter Leader of the Year candidates were nominated by the users and partners who attend their meetings.

“Mike noticed a dip in attendance in recent years. Instead of settling for status quo, he worked to re-vamp the meeting offerings by focusing on what would provide users real value. Recently, we’ve seen the Carolinas chapter offer both business user AND tech tracks – and the increased attendance numbers speak for themselves,” said one of his nominators.

The 2015 Chapter of the Year award goes to the Illinois (Chicago) Chapter. Leaders Mohammed Qureshi, Donna Liotta, Candace Meneou, and Jonathan Lee can be proud of their chapter’s accomplishments; they have grown registrations by 39% since 2014 and grown their chapter team by two new people.

“After a dip in attendance at one meeting, the Chicago team has consistently looked for quality ways to deliver networking and quality training to their members, including meeting on a bi-weekly basis with the chapter team,” said Onika Allen, Chapter Director. “Their dedication to comprehensive planning and delivering on quality experiences for their members is an example to lift up.”


The CRMUG All Star Award program recognizes CRMUG Members who have in-depth knowledge of the Microsoft Dynamics CRM application and make significant contributions of their time and expertise to educate and connect the greater CRMUG community. CRMUG All Star Award recipients are nominated and voted on by CRMUG Members.

Past CRMUG All Star Award recipients include Britta Scampton, Jason Lattimer, Zara Kamruddin, and Gus Gonzalez.
