Milestone Systems has hired Brian Cross to the newly created position of Channel Business Manager, working out of the company’s Brisbane office.
Cross is to have a high level of involvement with end-users, the consultant community and work closely with key Milestone Systems’ Integrators to identify opportunities in new markets to pursue Milestone’s strong growth agenda in targeted territories.
Cross arrives from access control and secure identity giants HID Global, where he was End User Business Manager for Australia and New Zealand. Prior to that, he worked for six years at another member of the ASSA ABLOY family, Security Merchants, first as State Manager for Queensland and later as National Sales Manager.
“I am excited to join Milestone Systems, especially at such an important juncture in the evolution of video technology,” said Cross. “As an open platform, Milestone’s XProtect software is forming the basis of our region’s most cutting-edge solutions. Working closely with consultants, systems integrators and other trusted vendor partners to define what end users need and then to be able to provide new and innovative solutions to help their business is very compelling. As someone who thrives on building relationships and finding solutions, joining one of the world’s leading providers of open platform VMS and working within the team and community is a great opportunity.”
