Before joining Westland, Zivkovic served as CIO at the parking management company Impark, where he led a 90-person team consisting of IT, privacy, innovation, transformation, and business development, and co-led the development and execution of the enterprise growth strategy. He was also previously chief technology officer/director of Information Technology at the Vancouver Airport Authority.

According to a Press release from GlobeNewswire, Zivkovic’s most recent role before joining Westland saw him operate as a strategy advisor and technology consultant, where he collaborated with private and public sector clients to transform operations and performance via technology.

Leading the technology transformation for the company as it continues to grow across Canada, while keeping exceptional client and employee experiences top of mind, is something I'm very passionate about. I look forward to working with the innovative leadership team and Westland employees as we build the future of the business.”

“Finding the right chief information officer was critical for this period of Westland's growth,'' said Jamie Lyons, Westland's president & CEO. “Milan's experience leading large teams and as a solutions-oriented senior leader makes him a great fit. He brings insights from other industries and the innovative mindset needed in this quickly evolving technology environment. We're happy to have a leader of his calibre join the Westland family.”
