Introducing the 2017 Lithium Stars!

We are so grateful for our superusers and advocates who keep our community thriving and our business innovating. They are the heart and soul of Lithium.


They routinely go above and beyond to help their peers in our community. They share best practices and participate in ideation, case studies, and Lithy Awards. They’re industry thought leaders who speak at conferences and offer a voice in our product direction as trusted advisors.


So it was a great pleasure to announce the new 2017 Lithium Stars in a live broadcast yesterday. We loved having the chance to personally recognize and thank each and every one of them.
