[board-discuss] Candidacy to the BoD elections: Jan Holešovský

in the Czech Republic.  Many people know me under my nickname "Kendy".
I work for Collabora as an Engineering Manager.

In the LibreOffice community, I currently serve in the Board of
Directors, and I would like to continue my duty there.  Otherwise I am
primarily a developer, and contribute both to the LibreOffice core and

Full name: Jan Holešovský
Corporate affiliation: Collabora
