Fostering a culture of success—and happiness.
Matt Miller embodies the belief that if you do what you love, the money will follow. In the years since graduating Summa Cum Laude from UMass Amherst with an English Degree, Matt has used his life’s passions to guide his professional career. He credits his business acumen to his liberal arts education, which he says provided him with vital critical thinking, comprehension, and strategy development skills.
A lifelong action sports enthusiast, Matt has held positions at K2 Sports in Washington, Yamaha Motorcycle in California, and Atomic Ski USA in New Hampshire. These positions only hardened his belief that if you’re going to spend a majority of your daytime hours at work, you need to love what you do—or, as Matt put it, “When work and play become indiscernible, magic happens.”
In 2007, Matt and his wife, Lynne, along with their daughter, Lily, and son, Lucas, decided to settle down in New England. While renovating their new home—a 1775 Colonial Farmhouse, Matt personally selected and installed architecturally-correct modern windows. As fate would have it, he stumbled upon a Marketing Manager position at Renewal by Andersen just a few days later. With his newfound appreciation for the intricacies of professional-grade window installation, Matt decided to apply, thinking that he’d only stick around for six months or a year.
That was ten years ago.
Now the Chief Marketing Officer of Esler Companies, Matt has witnessed the company’s remarkable growth firsthand, and is one of the key reasons for its tremendous success. Matt credits this success to a number of factors, starting with the leadership team; in his eyes, the unrelenting support of Matt and John Esler has been pivotal to the company’s upward trajectory. The other vital factor has been the ability of teammates and managers alike to foster a fantastic culture.
According to Matt, “The level of transparency, the dedication to explaining why we do things and the atmosphere of personal caring for each other is like nothing I’ve experienced elsewhere in my career. We care for our teammates, our customers and the towns in which we do business. I intend to be an engaged part of this community for the rest of my career.”
