Milan has over 20 years of experience in consulting and procurement and has demonstrable experience of selling and leading major contracts across Europe, the United Kingdom and the USA, including multi-million GBP transformational projects in a wide variety of sectors.

During this time, his focus has been on developing innovative business practices and processes that have provided truly actionable insights at both a strategic and tactical level with a clear focus on delivering cost savings through transformational and cost reduction programs.

Over the past decade Milan has worked in procurement consultancy and data analytics in the retail, oil & gas, financial services, technology and public sectors but more recently has had a particular focus on retail and private equity-owned organisations.

Milan was the founder and CEO of the Marketing Factory which was sold to 4C in 2014 and was subsequently Managing Partner at 4C Associates based in London.

Milan is now joint CEO of the Comprara Group, a specialist procurement consulting, analytics & training company that works with ASX 200 listed companies and Governmental organisations.

Comprara provides its clients with deep insights into how well they are performing against other similar organisations which enables them to deliver against their own unique strategies. The insights Comprara delivers helps their clients to do ‘more with less’​ or ‘more with the same’.

Milan will be working alongside Ben Shute, who is the existing Chief Executive Officer, who will continue in his role alongside Milan, allowing them to split responsibilities internally whilst driving the business forward.
