Since 2016, the HubSpot Community has been a hive of support and discussion. Got a problem using the HubSpot Growth Suite? You’ll find an answer there. And that answer was probably provided by our very own Phil Vallender.

By day, he’s just a mild-mannered Sales & Marketing Director. But by night (and also by day), he’s a HubSpot Community Thought Leader.

Phil’s spent a lot of time on the Community forum, sharing ideas and helping people out. As one of the first contributors to the HubSpot Community, Phil has become a HubSpot pro. And his knowledge has spread to us as well, helping Blend become a coveted Diamond HubSpot Partner.

Here’s just a small sample of some of the most popular problems Phil has solved:

Phil’s heroic HubSpot highlights

  1. Switching Email Type from Follow Up To Automation
  2. SMS Marketing & HubSpot Integration
  3. Creating Custom Properties in HubSpot
  4. Creating a Multi-step Form
  5. Defining CR & CTR

From the highly technical, to the seemingly superficial, Phil always takes the time to help any community member.

And then we got an email…

HubSpot were excited to tell us that Phil is the first community member (including HubSpot staff) to provide 1,000 Accepted Solutions!

At HubSpot, we rely on our partners to help us spread the inbound message. As one of the first Community members, Phil has had such a positive impact on the success of all HubSpot customers. On behalf of everyone at HubSpot, I congratulate Phil on this exciting achievement.

From sharing opinions to starting conversations and acting as a thought leader day in and day out, Phil demonstrates the very best of the HubSpot Community. Which is also why it’s such a fundamental part of Blend’s DNA. We’re all curious, supportive, and learn from each other to deliver our best work to our customers.

We’re proud to have a real community superhero in our midst. So congrats, Phil and here’s to your next thousand Accepted Solutions.

And then will we get a mask, HubSpot? Or maybe some snazzy orange boots? Come on, people, we MUST complete the look!
