As Southland's Mid-Atlantic Division Leader, Mr. Miller is responsible for the overall performance of the division, ranging from project selection through construction completion. His expertise lies in design-build delivery across a diverse group of market segments and he remains an advocate for the early formation of integrated project teams.

In 1999, he spearheaded the opening of a new regional office in the San Francisco Bay Area as division manager, then moved to Southland's Mid-Atlantic Division two years later to serve as project executive for the historic renovation of the Pentagon. Since joining the Mid-Atlantic Division, Mr. Miller also served as operations manager before his appointment to division leader in 2009.
By focusing on true integrated design-build project delivery and lean construction methods, Mr. Miller has helped guide several of the company's divisions to success throughout his 16 years of design-build mechanical engineering and construction experience. He has not only been a part of the management team on several of Southland's largest and most challenging projects, but also assisted in the continued growth of his division.
