Named director of Marketing for North America in 2017, Miller came to Wacker Neuson after 12 years with Doosan Bobcat, where he held management positions in sales, marketing, product management, brand identity and customer satisfaction. Miller will now be responsible for the continued growth of Wacker Neuson’s distribution network and expansion of the company’s market share in the United States.
