Milestone Systems has appointed Bjorn Skou Eilertsen as Vice President for the company’s recently established Corporate Products business unit, responsible for large and complex surveillance solutions. The company provides open platform video management systems which deliver a range of functionality, up to the creation of multi-site multi-server solutions. ‘Milestone Systems has achieved formidable growth in its first 14 years to be a leader in a market where the customers’ needs are constantly changing. I look forward to doing my part to keep us ahead of the competition,’ stated Eilertsen. ‘My primary task is to manage continued developments for our high-end products designed for more complex needs and larger customers, to ensure that our software best fulfills their requirements. Organisationally I will focus on leveraging coordination between R&D, marketing and sales to work toward our shared goals.’ Eilertsen comes to the new role with experience as a manager of product development, sales, marketing and business operations, demonstrating that he is a solid strategist who can develop new concepts and create growth. Most recently he was the manager of Microsoft’s Dynamics CRM business division in Western Europe where he was responsible for the partner channel, sales, marketing and product management.
