Executive Director, Institute for Global Enterprise
Experiences from My Global Career: Perspectives on Lessons Learned
Monday, November 12
Smythe Lecture Hall (Room 170), Schroeder School of Business Building
Dan Miller graduated from the University of Evansville in 1970 with a Bachelor of Science in business administration. He has served on the University’s Board of Visitors and Board of Trustees. In October 2011, Miller was named Executive Director of the Institute for Global Enterprise, affiliated with the University’s Schroeder School of Business.
Miller brings to this role at the University the depth of knowledge and breadth of experience acquired over the course of a long and successful career in global business. Among the positions in which he has served during that career are: president and CEO of International Knife and Saw in Cincinnati, Ohio; president and COO of Overhead Door Corporation in Dallas, Texas; executive vice president of Kimball International and president of Kimball Furniture Group in Jasper, Indiana where he led the development of the $1.2 billion NASDAQ company's Asian supply chain for furniture, grew market share and retained profitability during 40 percent industry revenue declines, and expanded the company's hospitality furniture business as it became a world leader in hotel furniture. Miller has also served as executive vice president for Latin America for Whirlpool Corporation, based in Sao Paulo, Brazil. There, as a member of Whirlpool’s eight-person executive committee, he played a key role in refining and implementing the company's globalization strategy.
Miller will draw from the wealth of experiences acquired in more than 50 countries over his 25-year career. He will share observations about and insight into what have been common and not-so-common elements in personal and professional interactions in multi-faceted, multi-lingual, and multi-cultural settings.
Reception immediately following in the Bernhardt Atrium sponsored by the Institute for Global Enterprise.
