Michael Kinkaid, Chief Technology Officer, ecentricarts

Michael Kinkaid has been a long-time member of, and contributor to the Kentico technical community, having assisted with the creation of Kentico User Group - Toronto. He is Kentico’s first Canadian MVP. "I'm thrilled to be joining the Kentico MVP team at such an exciting time for the product,” said Kinkaid. “I've been using Kentico for more than seven years, and am looking forward to sharing what I know with the broader community. I'm particularly interested in all aspects of training since I've helped educate many developers and end users over the years."

Laura Frese, Solution Architect, iMedia

Over the last year, Laura Frese has been very active in the Kentico community by achieving her Developer Certification, contributing to the Kentico Marketplace, and regularly assisting the community through Kentico DevNet as well as her own blog. "Kentico is such an amazingly well thought-out piece of technology,” said Frese. “It comes with a variety of out-of-the-box features allowing for a quick delivery of robust and powerful sites while providing an intuitive, well-documented API for developers to create customizations with ease. I feel privileged to be joining such an elite group of Kentico technical experts and will continue to be a dedicated contributor to the DevNet community and the growth of Kentico.”

Over the past several months, Roman Hutnyk has benefited the community through numerous blog posts, Kentico Marketplace submissions, and regular contributions on Kentico DevNet. “I can see a lot of benefits to being an MVP,” said Hutnyk. “But perhaps the most exciting aspect is contributing to the evolution of an already great product.”
