‘Milestone – Our People’ Videos: Latin America
At the Expo Seguridad security industry trade show this April in Mexico, we interviewed two of our key Milestone managers for Latin America. Hear how they see the rocket trajectory of their careers in the Milestone open platform video community.
Juan Carlos George is Sales Manager – Latin America for Milestone Systems and has now been with the company over a decade. He tells us his story in this video:
Milestone is my life, my second home, and the place where I’ve done a lot of things with the ability to be creative. For example, in Latin America we used to be a small company and it was just me, traveling with the software and a little camera. Today, in the Americas region, we are a full team, and we’re reaching another level with many departments and a wide variety of staff. People are the most important part of my story. A very special group of people from Mexico and Latin America supported me a lot at the beginning of my career. I am thankful because, at the end of the day, businesses are made by people. Companies are very important as they provide the basis, but people are the ones that make business possible. How we interact as people makes everything possible. In the end, whether interactions are with a competitor or a business partner, the right human factor is what really matters.
Edgardo López is Manager of PreSales Engineering – LatAm for Milestone Systems and came to the company in 2014 from SONY and GE Security, among other industry organizations.
Milestone allows us to think ‘out of the box’, be creative and contribute; that is the message they have shared with all of us in the company. Milestone has improved tremendously over its 20 years. The product has gotten better and better. When I started there were 530 employees, today we are almost 800. The truth is that the industry recognizes Milestone’s big effort. I’ve been lucky to meet a lot of good people in the industry, either because we’ve worked in projects or done solution developments together. They helped me to improve both personally and professionally, and I’m grateful to them. I’ve always been fascinated by technology and involved in it since I was in college. So, working for Milestone helped me to perform better and make great contributions with my knowledge. I never thought I would end up working for Milestone!
