Herb Miller, Jr. BSBA 1968

Professor Miller with studentsWhile a student in the Barney School of Business, Herb Miller, Jr.’s (BSBA ’68) passion for learning was evident.  "As President of the Barney School's Marketing Club, I always scheduled speakers who emphasized branding and personal selling.  Bringing them to campus gave students practical insights and great networking opportunities. University of Hartford professors were the very reason I pursued marketing as a profession.”

Miller’s career includes sales and management positions at Armstrong World Industries where he became the first African-American sales representative for the company.  He also enjoyed sales management positions with Lincoln Mercury and IBM, all of which, he says, provided him with real-world experiences that he now share with his students at the University of Texas in Austin. After his successful career in industry, Miller now works to instill the same passion he experienced in classes in his marketing students.  As a senior lecturer in marketing, he has won numerous teaching awards and assisted many students in gaining hands-on experience by supervising projects for client organizations. One of his recent initiatives helps students take branding lessons from successful companies and apply them to their own professional development.

"I learned quite bit on the topic of personal branding from my Barney School marketing professors who always stressed the importance of building strong and viable brands whether they were products or personal,” reflects Miller.   “The University of Hartford really prepared me for my dual track career in industry and academia….THANK YOU!"
