Malou Toft has been appointed as APAC vice president.
Toft will be responsible for the company's long-term growth strategy in the APAC region through business expansion, strategic partnerships and customer acquisition.
"COVID-19 reshaped our view of video surveillance and analytics, and how it can be leveraged beyond security," Toft says.
"From helping the growing aging population to crowd management, video technology is at a pivotal point in shaping a new normal by empowering users to make intelligent decisions and take meaningful actions.
"The rise of smart cities and IoT are expected to provide future growth opportunities for the APAC region, as modernised cities require innovative solutions.
"This makes Milestone well-poised to support this growth and help countries shape their digital future."
In her new role, Toft aims to continue to deliver positive business outcomes for customers and partners, further entrenching Milestone as the leading provider of open platform video management software.
She was previously Milestone's Europe vice president of Europe, Middle East, and Africa and was integral in the success and growth of the region.
As a recognised leader, Toft will also work to upskill and mentor the team, to reinforce a 'people first' culture and strengthen the creativity and agility of the employees.
