COPENHAGEN – 17 September 2007. Milestone Systems, the global leader for open platform IP video management software, intends to continue driving global business growth by appointing high-technology veteran Eric Fullerton to a new position as Chief Sales and Marketing Officer. This expands his role beyond the Americas to have a global impact on new business expansions for Milestone.
"We're extremely pleased to have Eric as the CS&MO for Milestone Systems. His success in building our business in the Americas is an impressive testimonial to his capability as an international business leader,” says Lars Thinggaard, President and CEO of Milestone Systems. "Eric's extensive business background, leadership, and understanding of the high-tech industry bring valuable assets to Milestone as we continue to grow our business worldwide.”
Fullerton joined Milestone in 2004 and became the President of Milestone Systems, Inc. with responsibility for operations in the Americas. That subsidiary has seen strong and steady growth in revenues since he joined.
Fullerton has an MBA from IMD Switzerland, and a Bachelor degree in Chemical Engineering from the Danish Engineering Academy. He has had global responsibility for operations in several other companies like Ericsson, Intel, Case and others, and brings this experience to the expansion activities and strategies for Milestone Systems.
“Few people get to see this kind of growth potential during their entire careers,” states Eric Fullerton, CS&MO of Milestone Systems. “I am very lucky to be in a position to work with these talented individuals and teams here at Milestone Systems, and to apply my experience inside such a well-managed company in a growth market that is close to unprecedented in today’s high-technology world.”
