Ivezic takes over from Ton Diemont, who helped establish the Cybersecurity practice and was instrumental in growing the team into a leading player in Saudi Arabia and the countries within the Levant region. Diemont now assumes another leadership remit, and will continue to work closely with Ivezic and the cyber team.

“Marin’s arrival will significantly enhance our efforts to develop our Cybersecurity practice. As the demand for cybersecurity services continues to rise, and Saudi Arabia is taking a regional and global role in building up cybersecurity capacity, Marin will bolster KPMG’s cyber offerings, enabling communities to operate securely and with trust in a connected world,” commented Robert Ptaszynski, Head of Digital & Innovation at KPMG.

During his career, Ivezic has acted as an interim global Chief Technology Officer and Head of Technology for several Fortune Global 500 companies. He also held multiple roles in consulting, including serving as a partner at PwC and IBM Consulting, and director at Accenture.

Ivezic is a regular speaker on cyber at summits and events, an author and thought leader with several publications behind his name, and a former member of the Cybersecurity expert network of the World Economic Forum.
