Mr. Miller brings more than thirty-five years of entrepreneurial and business operations experience in complex and ever-changing environments. Starting his career in the IT industry as a Consultant, he soon became Senior Manager of a $200 million data processing consulting firm.

In 1991, Mr. Miller decided to take his talents for recruiting onto the international stage. He built channels in England, India, Singapore, and the Philippines with the intention of bringing in highly-skilled international talent to fill the growing shortage of computer programmers in the United States. In 1993, the SF Business Times ranked Deltam Systems number 46 among the fastest growing privately held companies in Northern California. In 1998, he sold Deltam but retained its international recruiting channels, and formed a new company ICRG (International Consulting Resources Group) specializing in international IT professionals, which he successfully sold in 2004. Mr. Miller has an exceptional talent for insight. After much research and careful, well- thought-out planning, he decided to use his channels overseas to focus on filling the need for healthcare professionals.
