Welcome the Newest VCDXs

During the VMware Partner Exchange event in February, we also held VCDX (VMware Certified Design Expert) Defenses. The following people received the coveted VCDX status at this event.


  •  Matt Vandenbeld (in addition to his existing VCDX-DCV)
  • Garrette Grouwstra, VCDX 127


  • Derek Seaman, VCDX 125
  • Richard Arsenian, VCDX 126
  • Hersey Cartwright, VCDX 128
  • Josh Coen, VCDX 129
  • Sean Howard, VCDX 130
  • Jeff Mercier, VCDX 131
  • Kalen Arndt, VCDX 132

VCDX is the highest level of certification offered by VMware. The VCDX Program allows candidates to validate enterprise-class skills in VMware Solution design and implementation. Certification is achieved through the Design Defense where all candidates must submit and successfully defend a production-ready VMware Solution before a panel of veteran VCDX-holders. This unique testing process ensures that those who achieve VCDX are peer-vetted and ready to join an elite group of world-class consulting architects.

To learn more about these, and all the VCDXs, visit the online directory.
