He joins their Columbus, Ohio office as the Director of Operations for the Buildings Systems Business Unit.

Mr. Miller received a marketing degree and MBA from Wheeling Jesuit University. He started his career assisting clients in commercializing their technologies and physical facilities. These activities resulted in several licensing and cooperative research agreements, along with a number of business start-ups. From there, he transitioned to the architecture and engineering (A/E) market where he used his ability to structure strategic alliances to service the design needs of his clients. Mr. Miller has spent his career developing strategic networks and providing consulting services to the federal government, higher education institutions, and private sector entities.
When asked about the biggest trends and needs in his field Mr. Miller commented, “Strategic partnering has become a critical approach in the A/E market sector. This trend is no longer exclusive to smaller firms. Today, it’s not unusual to see mid-sized and larger firms teaming together to bring customers a unique and customized product offering. In addition, owners have existing relationships in specific verticals that they may want to augment with specialty capabilities from other firms. The companies that can successfully execute these relationships often prove to be most successful in the industry and have the opportunity to deliver cutting edge projects.”
