"Their combined decades of financial leadership experience will be an invaluable addition as we continue to execute our growth strategy and onboard more and more fleet customers across the country.”
Ivancich joins Platform Science from Saban Capital Group, a private investment firm where he served as CFO.

His roles included Director of Real Estate Investment Banking at Barclays and Executive Director of Real Estate Investment Banking at Morgan Stanley.
Choung joins Platform Science from ActiveState, a SaaS company that provides secure open source language solutions for enterprise customers, where he served as CRO. With prior roles at key Fortune 500 technology companies, Choung brings over 20 years of leadership experience within the high-tech industry at companies such as Qualcomm, Microsoft, and Oracle. Throughout his career, he has led executive functions for sales and marketing within multinational organizations.
The appointments of Ivancich and Choung come following the recent additions of Chas Wurster, who joined Platform Science as Chief Technology Officer, overseeing all aspects of product development, engineering, and IT at the company; and Heather Ramírez, who was named the Chief People Officer of Platform Science and is responsible for leading the people operations, recruiting and office management teams.
Kennedy continued, "As our growth accelerates, we continue to deepen our executive and management team and we're thrilled to welcome some incredibly talented new leaders. Our company's ongoing growth and success is a direct function of the incredible team of colleagues that make Platform Science such a great place to work, innovate and collaborate. These new additions will help to propel us farther and faster, as the ride continues.”
