January 4, 2007 -- To accommodate business growth within the US, Milestone Systems (www.milestonesys.com), the Denmark-based of provider of open platform IP video management software, has announced the hiring of four new managers in its Americas subsidiary.

According to a press release issued by the company:

Mark Wilson has been appointed as channel marketing manager handling Milestone's channel activities and events in the Americas. Wilson comes to Milestone from Intel, bringing significant experience in the disciplines of marketing to the IT industry. Originally from England, he has worked in Denmark, Holland and the US for many years.

Tim Palmquist has been appointed as Milestone's territory manager for the Central region of the US. Palmquist has been working with Milestone software products for more than three years as the key IP anchor person at ISG Technology, Inc., a Cisco Systems integrator covering the Midwestern states. In November 2004, he was responsible for training and certifying a group of professionals in Milestone's XProtect Enterprise product, which helped propel ISG as an important IP security reseller in the mid-central US.

Manuel Nylen has been appointed as Milestone's territory manager for the Eastern region of the US. The position finds Nylen returning to the security industry where he earlier helped Axis Communications to develop their network camera business in the American market, demonstrating an ability to build highly efficient reseller channels in the emerging IP video market. Since then, Nylen has run his own retail business in Connecticut, using Milestone software in his store together with Axis cameras.

Lawrence De Guzman is transferring from Milestone headquarters in Copenhagen to the US, where he will be territory manager for the company's US Western region. De Guzman has helped to develop the company's corporate initiatives out of Denmark over the past year, working with channel development, partner programs, and events. Previously, he also worked for Axis, managing the sales in the APAC region for nine years.

"These strong individuals will play a key role in continuing Milestone Systems' quest for market and thought leadership in the open platform IP video industry," comments president of Milestone Systems' Americas.

The company says it expects to hire a field solutions engineer soon, located in its US Eastern region. For the position, the company says it seeks someone with experience with Milestone products who will be able to improve the company's efforts in addressing pre-sales issues, running trials for major projects, and dealing with security consultants and F-1000 companies.

During the first week of January, Milestone's full Americas team will be meeting at the company's US headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon, for "a strategic kick-off" of the company's 2007 sales activities.
