We are happy to announce the appointment of Sandesh Kaup as Country Manager for India and SAARC and Kyoichi Nishimura as Country Manager for Japan.
The Milestone APAC team are pleased to announce the appointment of two new country managers within the Asia Pacific region.

Firstly, we welcome back Sandesh Kaup as country manager for India and SAARC. Sandesh Kaup re-joins the Milestone family after four years in a highly successful leadership position at Allied Telesis – a network infrastructure/telecommunications company, involved with secure IP/Ethernet switching solutions.

Sandesh comes with over two decades of experience and significant exposure handling multiple global companies. Milestone has been a part of his DNA since 2011, running the local business until 2016 and largely responsible for the incredible growth the region experienced in that time.

Next, we welcome Kyoichi Nishimura as country manager for Japan. Nishimura-san joins Milestone from Eagle Eye Networks where he served as Sales Director for Japan, and prior to this spent 4 years at Avigilon as the Regional Sales Director for Japan and Korea.

With over three decades of experience in the unified communications and video surveillance industries, along with his extensive experience in building channel partner eco-systems, as well as mentoring and leading high performing sales teams, Nishimura-san is well placed to lead the Japan business into the future.

Nishimura-san replaces Erik Friis Mondorf, who we congratulate on his new position as Sales Director for APAC with Arcules.
