COPENHAGEN, Denmark, January 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Former Microsoft Manager Bjorn Skou Eilertsen leads a newly created business unit for high complexity surveillance software

Milestone Systems, the open platform company in IP video management software (VMS), has hired Bjørn Skou Eilertsen as Vice President for the company's recently established Corporate Products business unit, responsible for large and high complexity surveillance 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," says Eilertsen, VP of the Milestone Systems Corporate Products business unit. "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. Organizationally I will focus on leveraging coordination between R & D, marketing and sales to work toward our shared goals."

Eilertsen has more than 14 years of experience as a manager of product development, sales, marketing and business operations. He has demonstrated that he is a solid strategist who can develop new concepts and create growth while being an empathetic leader, most recently with four years' success as 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.

John Blem, Chief Product Officer and Founder of Milestone Systems, is pleased that Eilertsen has joined the company as part of its continued expansions: "With Bjorn's passion for software, strong background in the IT industry and innate skills for growing business, he is the perfect person to help implement our new strategy. This involves more input from our partners in the development process so we can be better than ever at tailoring our products, marketing and sales to their differing needs and those of the customers."

The new growth strategy for Milestone Systems also includes the establishment of parallel organizational divisions: the Professional Products unit run by VP Janne Jakobsen has its focus on high-volume, small to medium-size business (SMB) sector needs, while the Incubation and Ventures group lead by VP Lars Nordenlund is investigating and developing future products and services for open platform IP video management software, with a new office location in Silicon Valley, California.
