Our Team

Milo Mihajlovich

Milo is a registered professional forester (RPF), in Alberta; he founded in IFT in 1996 and has led the company since then. In an eclectic career spanning operational reforestation on two continents, agricultural research and development, aviation operations management and greenhouse gas emission reduction and quantification Milo has focused on integrating technical innovation, strategic thinking and operational activity. His work experience includes operational reforestation throughout Alberta, technical support of a variety of crop protection products, vegetation management planning and delivery in Alberta, British Columbia, Ontario, South Australia and Western Australia, helicopter operations management, First Nations consultation on behalf of the forest and energy industries and First Nations, and greenhouse gas emission mitigation quantification.

Milo is first and foremost a forester who delights in helping customers understand and engage in complex technically driven opportunities. His focus is in providing customers a strategic view of how these opportunities might benefit the customers' enterprise over the long term. IFT and Milo were critical in helping Alberta's forest industry develop a world class forest vegetation management process that focuses on sustaining complex, diverse forests over the long-term. A strong background in herbicide and application technology allowed Milo to assist customers in developing thoughtful, proactive vegetation management programs that carefully manages environmental risks. Milo successfully collaborated with the forest industry, forestry and pesticide regulators, herbicide manufacturers, and herbicide applicators to help foster this outcome.

At present, Milo is applying this same drive, commitment and enthusiasm to greenhouse gas emission mitigation opportunities arising from forestry and biomass based activities.

Kevin Kemball

Kevin is an ecologist with 15 years experience working primarily in the boreal forest of western Canada. Kevin is a professional biologist (P.Biol.) in Alberta with a diverse background including degrees in biology (B.Sc.), forestry (M.Sc.F), and botany/ecology (Ph.D). His professional experience is equally diverse from lecturing in ecology (U of Winnipeg) to leading environmental impact assessments, and co-authoring silviculture and reclamation guides for Alberta. Kevin has significant experience in project management and administration. Recent work at IFT on carbon offsets and similar projects required facilitation of expert peer review panels as well as incorporation of public feedback. Previously, Kevin has worked as both Principal Ecologist and General Manager. In these roles Kevin was responsible for all aspects of project management and supervision as well as business operations including client relations, proposal development and human resources.

Kevin is a life-long-learner who is first and foremost a scientist. Kevin serves as a lead resource for technical project scoping and development for several IFT clients. As a scientist, Kevin seeks first to understand a problem in order to develop solutions that best meet the needs of the client. His background in ecology provides him with a deep appreciation for systems, biological or other, and how they interact. This appreciation for systems allows an approach not solely based on details.

Leanna Penner

Leanna Penner is a recent addition to the IFT team but is not a newcomer to reforestation. Starting from a summer job as a tree planter Leanna has developed a varied and successful career in operational reforestation. Her strengths are in data management, geographic information systems and other more technical aspects of reforestation and vegetation management in both forestry and industrial vegetation management settings.

Leanna is looking forward to the personal growth opportunities IFT offers - in particular she is interested in learning more about greenhouse gas emission mitigation and reclamation of industrial sites and landscapes.
