Empired is a leading Episerver partner in Asia Pacific, that is highly-experienced and recognised across the Episerver stack, and continues to strengthen its position in the customer experience space. Empired differentiates its Episerver practice through:
- being the only platinum-level Episerver partner in Asia Pacific
- the appointment of Darren Stahlhut, one of three Episerver Most Valued Professionals (MVPs) in Australia, as national technical director in April 2020

- being recognised with three awards from Episerver, including overall partner of the year in Asia Pacific, in March 2020.
Kevin Miller, head of digital and experience design, Empired, said, “Delivering and maintaining strong customer experiences in the digital forum is crucial for organisations. With the right technology in place, organisations can drive their online presence for growth. For customers, having a partner that works in close collaboration with vendors has never been more important for ensuring the maximum return on investment in technology. As part of the PAB, Empired will be able to influence the product direction and gain early access to roadmaps to ensure that future Episerver releases are meeting customer needs.”
As a PAB member, Empired will routinely meet with Episerver executives to ensure a continuous feedback loop as well as obtain advanced access to product launches, company news, partner tools and other drivers of partner-vendor success.
