Milan served as an analyst on my strategy team for a couple of years – first as an operations analyst focused on helping optimize the running of our internal consulting business, and later as a market analyst focused on driving strategic insights around the defense sector, one of the key markets for Arconic.
He is an all-rounder who brings a strong mix of both IQ and EQ – this makes him highly flexible and adaptable to a range of business situations and needs. He has an insatiable curiosity to both learn new things as well as to go deep, and can rapidly pick up new topics, create fresh insights from them, and communicate the analysis in creative and compelling ways. He also brings a very strong set of analytical tools to bear to his work – whenever I was looking for a creative, new way to leverage office tools for data analysis, he would be the first person I went to.
He naturally takes initiative, forms strong working and personal relationships quickly with his colleagues, always puts the team first, and is a major contributor to a positive workplace culture. One of my favorite people to work with.

I am passionate about research, analysis, and strategy. The critical thinking and problem-solving are what excites me the most as they are skills I have honed throughout my career and excel in.
I have a bachelor’s degree in Industrial Engineering with a minor in Computer Science and years of experience working with Microsoft Excel, Python and SQL for data analysis and with tools such as Microsoft PowerPoint, Tableau or Matplotlib in Jupyter notebook to communicate my findings in a simple and compelling way.
In previous roles, I often served as the communication bridge between executives (clients), engineers (doers), and designers (makers). This distinct ability to skillfully speak a full range of business languages is the result of having worked in a diverse range of roles during my career.

Founded in 1923, the Aero Club Novi Sad is one of the oldest aeronautical institutions in Eastern Europe. As Vice president, I was responsible for all in-air sports activities like aircraft precision flying, glider competitions, and skydiving. I also led the transformation of the Club from a non-profit to a commercial organization by commercializing attractive aero activities including aerial sightseeing by airplane, tandem skydiving, and tandem glider flights.
