His proven sales and service skills will help ensure customer satisfaction, in addition to our established partner training, technical support, and further developments for managing major projects, for which we have many exciting plans in sight,” said Glenn Fletcher, Country Manager for Milestone Systems.
His previous positions include Regional Sales Manager at 360 Vision Technology Limited (2004-2009) and Major Accounts and Area Sales Manager positions that followed Technical Support at Video Controls Limited/Honeywell Systems (1996-2004), where he was selling and specifying surveillance solutions through system integrators, consultants and end users. Prior to that, Jones had his own company called Ambertec Security Systems, after starting his career in the security industry as an installation engineer at Ranger Developments and Bellard Electronics.
Jones received his higher education degree from West Cheshire College, in Handbridge, Chester (1984-1988) and followed up with these professional qualifications: HNC – Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Part Six–Sigma Trained, and the completion of several Mercuri sales training courses.
Jones is an enthusiastic golfer and a member of Upton-by-Chester Golf Club, so Milestone partners and customers can look for some smooth driving as he covers his new territory.
