Back in July this year this article mentioned that Knowledge Executives would be announced. Unless I have missed it I haven't seen the announcement. have there been any new Knowledge Executives? If so who are they?

I don't treat Twitter can be promoted a main announcement channel. My experience is Twitter is great as a channel for short news, but more official announcements are always published also on web. I see Bentley Systems Twitter channel has about 9k followers ... many local channels have much more. And where to provide information and announcements about Knowledge Executives, that is community appraisal, than on the community web?

I believe that the term Knowledge Executive is over blown and conceited. In contrast, the accolade Most Valued Professional (MVP) is used extensively in the software industry. There's no point in having letters after one's name if nobody understands the significant of those letters. Knowledge Executive is an invention of Bentley Systems and, it seems, you have difficulty yourselves in explaining its nature.
Why not revert to the MVP programme, which is common currency?

I am not sure about the program, but we have not died for sure :-))))
... which for me is just a proof that knowledge sharing in community does not depend on a formal appraisal. On the other hand it's a shame and loss for Bentley they are not able to maintain such program. Why it's so big problem when so many companies are able to run similar programs in a consistent manner for years?
