Former Indy Chamber prez scores consulting work

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Scott Miller, who stepped down Friday as president of the Indy Chamber, started work this week as a consultant for two local startups.

Miller left the chamber after less than two years as president to pursue more entrepreneurial interests. As a consultant, he will work with Indianapolis-based 3D Parts Manufacturing and an undisclosed construction company.

He will provide general business advice for both firms as they get off the ground. “Those two engagements are going to keep me fairly busy for the next several months,” Miller said.

Both consultation contracts are open-ended. “I’ll be there as long as they need me,” Miller said. “Hopefully that will be a long time.”

In the meantime, the chamber has begun taking applications for Miller’s replacement.

Greg Fennig, a vice president for Indianapolis Power & Light Co. and chair of the chamber’s search committee, said the organization expects to have a new president selected by the end of July.

Candidates from across the country have submitted applications, Fennig said, but the “vast majority” of them have been from the Indianapolis area.

Miller arrived at the chamber in October 2011 to succeed Roland Dorson as president. Dorson has since taken a job leading a tech startup.

One of Miller’s clients, 3D Parts Manufacturing, launched in January. Company co-founder Kim Brand chairs the board of directors for the Business Ownership Initiative, which is part of the Indy Chamber.

Brand, who knew Miller through their roles with the chamber, recruited Miller after he announced his intention to resign from from the chamber in April.

Miller will help with startup chores as basic as developing a business plan, Brand said.

Miller declined to discuss his second client, because the company has not publicly announced his contract.

  1. These liberals are out of control. They want to drive our economy into the ground and double and triple our electric bills. Sierra Club, stay out of Indy!

  2. These activist liberal judges have gotten out of control. Thankfully we have a sensible supreme court that overturns their absurd rulings!

  3. Maybe they shouldn't be throwing money at the IRL or whatever they call it now. Probably should save that money for actual operations.

  4. For you central Indiana folks that don't know what a good pizza is, Aurelio's will take care of that. There are some good pizza places in central Indiana but nothing like this!!!

  5. I am troubled with this whole string of comments as I am not sure anyone pointed out that many of the "high paying" positions have been eliminated identified by asterisks as of fiscal year 2012. That indicates to me that the hospitals are making responsible yet difficult decisions and eliminating heavy paying positions. To make this more problematic, we have created a society of "entitlement" where individuals believe they should receive free services at no cost to them. I have yet to get a house repair done at no cost nor have I taken my car that is out of warranty for repair for free repair expecting the government to pay for it even though it is the second largest investment one makes in their life besides purchasing a home. Yet, we continue to hear verbal and aggressive abuse from the consumer who expects free services and have to reward them as a result of HCAHPS surveys which we have no influence over as it is 3rd party required by CMS. Peel the onion and get to the root of the problem...you will find that society has created the problem and our current political landscape and not the people who were fortunate to lead healthcare in the right direction before becoming distorted. As a side note, I had a friend sit in an ED in Canada for nearly two days prior to being evaluated and then finally...3 months later got a CT of the head. You pay for what you get...
