Skilled Commercial Construction Team In South Florida
The growth and success of Miller Construction Company can be traced back to the company's culture of always doing what is in the best interest of its clients. Their leadership team exemplifies that same philosophy every day, across the board, whether working with clients, subcontractors, industry contacts, or other team members.
Thomas J. Miller is Chief Executive Officer of Miller Construction Company. Tom is a State of Florida certified General Contractor who received his degree in Building Construction from the University of Florida in 1965. After working with a national construction firm, Tom knew there had to be a better way to construct a building and make the client happy without the adversarial culture that had become inherent in the construction business. He brought his brother Harley on board and they founded Miller Construction Company in 1973.
Miller’s history of reliability and track record of always conducting business in the best interests of their clients has earned them an extensive list of repeat clients - individuals and companies that have done business with Miller on more than one project. Their clients share principles that reap those positive results – honest communication, responsiveness, cooperation, and mutual expectations.
Tom believes in being an active participant in his chosen industry and his community and has served on many community, civic and industry-related boards over the years. He has served as President of the Construction Association of South Florida, Chairman of the Greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance and The Broward Workshop, held a seat on the Advisory Council for the University of Florida School of Building Construction, as well as on the Board of Trustees for the Broward College Foundation. He has also served on the boards of numerous charitable organizations such as the United Way of Broward County, the Fort Lauderdale Museum of Art, the Museum of Discovery and Science and The Honda Classic Foundation as well as serving as the Chairman of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County and co-founding The Generals, a program within the Boys & Girls Clubs to expose club members to careers in the construction industry.
Through the years, Tom’s leadership has been recognized with numerous awards, including “General Contractor of the Year” from the American Subcontractors Association, “Business Leader of the Year” from the Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce and the Sun-Sentinel’s prestigious “Excalibur Award.” He was honored with a Profiles in Leadership award by the Leadership Broward Foundation, Child Advocate of the Year by Big Brothers Big Sisters of Broward County, and in 2003, he was inducted into the Nova Southeastern University Entrepreneur Hall of Fame.
