Milan is our data science guru and analytics lead. Before starting the True North, Milan worked as Data & AI Lead in IBM Croatia, where he gathered his experience on both local and international projects, in a wide-range of industries, from Banking & Telco to Public sector. When he is not helping clients on becoming data-driven companies of tomorrow, he is a columnist and TV sports commentator. He holds MSc in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology from FER and MSc in Automation Engineering and Robotics from Politecnico di Milano, graduating on the subjects of autonomous underwater vehicles (AUV) and fault predictions. For the past 5 years his primary focus is on the delivery of tangible business value from improved decision making and data monetization via machine learning (ML) algorithms. If you have tons of data and want to make sense of it he's your guy. Incurable generalist, storyteller, data connaisseur and TN torchbearer.

Black belt problem solver with a proven track record as a lead on many challenging projects using different platforms & technologies, from "classic" AIX, Mainframe, Websphere to "modern" and state-of-the-art K8s, cloud native development, Serverless, Quarkus and Kafka.

Davor was a 10 year old child when he wrote his first few lines of code. Since then, he wrote few more lines of code. If you ask him for his IT experience, he will not know where to start. Davor holds MSc in Computer Science from the University of Zagreb, graduating in the field of Natural Language Processing. He always wanted to work as a researcher, was amazed by AI, but ended up building complex enterprise systems. He is software engineer, consultant, IT architect, our dev guru and spiritual guide. When things get tough, Davor gets going, with his 'tis but a scratch-we'll deliver in time-mentality that never fails. He worked on projects in telco, public sector, energy, banking and finance industries, covering all steps of software delivery lifecycle. He also worked with a lot of enterprise and cloud technical solutions (open source, IBM, Oracle, Microsoft, Google, Amazon), but likes to point out that people, not technology, are more important in making a good enterprise solution. Before partnering up in True North, Davor worked in IBM Services for 9 years.
