Jim Miller
Senior Vice President, Managing Director

Trained in theatre, Jim Miller did what any actor would do. He parlayed his theatrical ambitions to the public relations stage. His career began at Burson-Marsteller, where he learned the discipline from the firm's joint venture with Dentsu. He then moved to Vorhaus & Co. before striking out on his own as a consultant, and eventually rejoined Dentsu.

Jim spearheads communications programs for clients in the nonprofit, education, technology, food, beverage and travel sectors. Some of his blue-chip brands include Siemens, Canon and Nestlé.

Spending his teens in Germany, Jim studied at The Crane School of Music and holds a BFA from NYU. He is also the author of Cigar Family: A 100 Year Journey in the Cigar Industry. A confirmed movie buff, he owns a piece of the Death Star model used in Return of the Jedi.
