I graduated in 1972 from Christian Brothers High School (Memphis, TN) and played football, ran track and boxed. Later I attended two and a half years at Memphis State University majoring in business and took journalism. I am married to Connie Miller, and I have two sons, Ben and Justin Miller, as well as a step-son, Ronnie Philips, and step-daughter, Ashley Stidham. I am one of four brothers and the 3rd generation of Miller’s to work in the family’s publishing business, which focuses on the forest products industry. I consider it a privilege to work in an industry where I have so many friends who I enjoy working with, as well as going hunting, playing golfing and getting to know them and their families.

I started with Miller Wood Trade Publications in 1983 with my father (Paul Miller Sr., second generation in our company) and three eldest brothers (Wayne, Gary and Paul Jr.), representing the third generation as publishers.

This industry has provided the opportunity to travel every state in the U.S.A., with the exception of Alaska, and all nine provinces in Canada.

I am so very grateful to have made so many friends in this business and I look forward to those I will meet in the future!

I have been blessed with a daughter, Brittney, who will be starting college, and my son, Nick, who will begin high school.

I enjoy snow skiing, hunting and fishing, golf, riding motorcycles and being with family and friends.

Our dedicated team of 21 at Miller Wood Trade Publications is here to be of service to YOU and the industry we serve… after all, you are the reason we have the opportunity and privilege to come to work everyday and provide for our families! With that, I want to say THANK YOU!
