Mark Miller      

Vice President of Training and Development at Chick-fil-A

Mark Miller began writing about a decade ago when he was fortunate to team up with Ken Blanchard to write "The Secret: What Great Leaders Know and Do."

In 2011, he released "The Secret of Teams" outlining the key principles that enable some teams to outperform the all the rest. "Great Leaders Grow: Becoming a Leader for Life" came next, also in 2011.

"The Heart Of Leadership" was released in the fall of 2013. With more than 600,000 books in print, Miller was surprised by the response and delighted to serve leaders through his writing. His new book, "Chess Not Checkers," with co-author Randy Gravitt was released on April 6th, 2015.

In addition to writing, Miller speaks to leaders. Over the years, he has traveled extensively around the world, teaching for numerous international organizations. His theme is always the same: encouraging and equipping leaders.

Miller also sells chicken. He started his Chick-fil-A career working as an hourly team member back in 1977. In 1978, he joined the corporate staff working in the warehouse and mail room. Since then, he's provided leadership for Corporate Communications, Field Operations, Quality and Customer Satisfaction, Training and Development, and Organizational Effectiveness.

Today, Miller serves as the Vice President for Leadership Development. During his time with Chick-fil-A, annual sales have grown to over $5 billion and the company now has more than 1,700 restaurants in 39 states and the District of Columbia.

Miller has been married to my high school sweetheart, Donna, for more than 30 years. They have two sons, a daughter-in-law, a beautiful granddaughter, Addison, and a grand-dog named Jackson.

Miller also loves photography. He's had the privilege to shoot in some of the world’s hardest-to-reach places, including: Mount Kilimanjaro, Everest Base Camp, Antarctica and the jungles of Rwanda.
