New VP to boost growth in the EMEA region and drive innovation in the partner community
COPENHAGEN – March 7, 2018. Milestone Systems, the open platform company in IP video management software (VMS), announces its new Vice President for EMEA, Malou Mousten Dyhr Toft, who also becomes member of Milestone Systems’ Extended Leadership Team. She will be responsible for the whole EMEA region, the EMEA sales operation, the EMEA Custom Development and Support and will focus on further strengthening the EMEA partner community of distributors, installers, solutions partners and camera manufacturers.
“I’m very excited to join Milestone Systems and I look forward to being part of this forward-looking and innovative company. The concept of openness and community is a profound part of Milestone Systems’ DNA and is undoubtedly one of the reasons why we will be leading the disruption that will change the security industry in the years to come,” Malou Mousten Dyhr Toft says.
Innovation and business development have played a significant role in Malou Mousten Dyhr Toft’s career in the telecom industry – an industry that was truly disrupted with the rise of mobile telecommunications and the introduction of smart phones. Disruption emerges when customers require change, so it is essential to understand who the customers are as well as their requirements for design of services and products, according to Malou Mousten Dyhr Toft.
“Milestone Systems is an industry leader, and our ambition is to maintain this position. My goal is to further grow the EMEA region and support our sales organization and community of partners in rethinking how we do business and especially how we can grow business together as a community,” Malou Mousten Dyhr Toft says.
“We were looking for someone with proven leadership skills and the ability to dare think differently. We believe that the security industry is facing significant changes and Malou Mousten Dyhr Toft is the right person to lead this change in the EMEA region and to support our ambition to increase growth in the years to come,” Chief Sales & Marketing Officer Kenneth Hune Petersen, Milestone Systems, says.
Malou Mousten Dyhr Toft joins Milestone Systems after a long and remarkable career at Telenor, most recently as Head of B2B. In 2016, Malou was elected a Top 100 Business Talent by Danish national business magazine Berlingske Tidende. Malou Mousten Dyhr Toft will be based at Milestone Systems’ headquarters in Copenhagen and report directly to Kenneth Hune Petersen, Chief Sales & Marketing Officer.
