Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada – March 13, 2018 – ParcelPal Technology Inc. (“ParcelPal” or the “Company”), (PKG:CSE) (FSE:PT0) (OTC:PTNYF) is pleased to announce the appointment of Cody Halovich to the role of CTO.
Mr. Halovich has a full spectrum background in software development, working professionally in the industry since the age of 14. A veteran of multiple technology based startups, he brings a wealth of knowledge in cloud technologies, software design, and technology leadership. His 20 years of development experience, 10 years of cloud automation, and experience dealing with remote development teams will help elevate ParcelPal to leadership level in the On-Demand uberization of parcel delivery. Cody will be actively working on scaling the platform to further enable ParcelPal the ability of expansion.
Prior to joining ParcelPal, Mr. Halovich was most recently serving in his own company, SixOhQuad Consulting Inc., helping the British Columbia Automobile Association (BCAA) move from fully on-premises infrastructure, into Amazon Web Services (AWS). Adopting AWS’s Infrastructure, and Platform-as-a-Service model, he helped improve business continuity, restructured cost, and helped lead their world-class team into the cloud. Aside from his Cloud Architecture work at BCAA, in the last 10 years, Mr. Halovich has helped PayByPhone Technologies, the world’s largest Parking Payments platform, transition from an ITIL, self-managed team, to a DevOps embracing, fast moving powerhouse. Before PayByPhone, he facilitated HootSuite to reach data-scalability, allowing them to realize their massive growth plans. HootSuite still serves as the largest player in the Social Media Management sector.
Cody will be auditing and revamping the existing technology platform for business continuity and scalability. He will help bring visibility of ParcelPal’s technology development to a larger distribution audience.
