Milestone Systems announces the appointment of Ritesh Deokar to the role of Country Manager, India

COPENHAGEN, SEPTEMBER 26, 2019 -
The appointment of Ritesh Deokar is a strategically important move for the company, adding valuable experience and expertise which complement Milestone Systems’ ambitious expansion plans in the region.

Ritesh joins the company from a senior management position at Larsen & Toubro Infotech (LTI), where he was responsible for Global Alliances. Prior to that, he was employed as National Alliance manager at Wipro Limited, and has extensive experience working within the ICT sector in India. His diverse background in both technology and security will be of significance to Milestone Systems’ growth in the region.

Jordan Cullis, Director for APAC at Milestone Systems, said of the appointment: “The fact that Ritesh brings a converged security and technology skillset to the company fits perfectly with our needs. Video management has evolved far past the point where it exists purely as a standalone technology, and to fully harness the power of an open VMS platform like Milestone Systems, our leaders need to understand and work with the myriad of technologies that integrate with our solutions.”

Ritesh received his MBA from Nagpur University, and is fluent in four languages: Hindi, English, Kannada and Marathi. He will be based in Bengaluru.

Milestone Systems has committed to an ambitious growth strategy in the region, backed by a global plan to increase their innovation capacity by 45 percent.

“I am very excited to come to a leading global company like Milestone Systems, at a time when there is so much happening in the video management and surveillance industry in India. There is enormous potential for Milestone Systems’ open platform VMS solution and my extensive contacts across the IT and security markets here will certainly give us some great scope to forge new alliances, build new solutions and really take the company forward across the region,” said Ritesh Deokar.
