Who are Kentico Kontent MVPs?

I enjoy being a Kontent MVP because I love working with new technologies that shape our industry. This is especially true with such an innovative product like Kontent, where it is constantly evolving with new sets of features and capabilities. Then there is the bonus of being able to work with a large group of talented people that shape the future product roadmap. I couldn't be happier for this recognition.
