Milestone appoints new VP for EMEA

April 2018 News & Events

Milestone Systems has announced its new vice president for EMEA, Malou Mousten Dyhr Toft, who also becomes a member of Milestone Systems’ Extended Leadership Team. She will be responsible for the whole EMEA region, including sales operation, 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 lead the disruption changing the security industry in the years to come,” Mousten Dyhr Toft says.

Innovation and business development have played a significant role in Mousten Dyhr Toft’s career in the telecom industry – an industry that was truly disrupted with the rise of mobile telecommunications and later the introduction of smartphones. 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.

“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 organisation and community of partners in rethinking how we do business and especially how we can grow business together as a community,” 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 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,” Milestone’s chief sales & marketing officer, Kenneth Hune Petersen says.

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.
