Sandy Welcomes Scheels
It’s only natural that Greg Miller loves Sandy. “I was raised in Sandy, my wife Heidi and I are raising our family here, and many of our businesses are here,” says Miller, CEO of the Larry H. Miller Group of Companies (LHM).
Miller is building on a legacy of involvement in the city that his father began. Larry H. Miller built the company that bears his name and headquartered it in the city in which he and his family lived. After joining the management team in 2005 and becoming CEO in 2008, Greg Miller has carried on the company’s growth and commitment to Sandy City through business development and charitable work.
Because the corporate headquarters are in Sandy, Miller has made an effort to keep the company involved in local business and community events. Having a member of the LHM’s advisory board on the Sandy Area Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors has helped the group become more involved in local events and business functions, he says.
Not only does Miller donate through the Miller organization, but he encourages employees to give back to the communities in which they work as well. And a local businessman says most people don’t realize that Miller and his wife anonymously donate tens of thousands of dollars to people and organizations throughout the city and state.
Miller says one of the most significant aspects of the job is the ability to give back. “That can come through the creation of quality jobs. It can come through opportunities to learn and grow individually. It can come through philanthropic activities.”
Perhaps one of the largest charitable contributions to the city is the Larry H. Miller Entrepreneurship Training Center, on the Miller Campus of Salt Lake Community College in Sandy. The Miller Business Resource Center and Miller Business Innovation Center encourages entrepreneurs and startups to help build the entrepreneurial community and spirit that Miller and his family have demonstrated. In 2006, SLCC also dedicated the Larry and Gail Miller Public Safety Education & Training Center.
These donations to education and a pioneering spirit in business are just a few of the many ways in which Miller has helped build and sustain Sandy City.
The LHM businesses are also an invaluable part of the city’s business environment. In addition to the company headquarters, Sandy is home to the Jordan Commons Megaplex Theatre, with 17 screens, diverse food court and a luxury VIP lounge and private theatre. Several high-quality restaurants are in the Jordan Commons complex.
The Southtowne Automall is a set of 13 dealerships in Sandy run by LHM Group. The automall has cars for almost everyone with new and used cars in a variety of makes and models.
The Miller Group has put down deep roots in Sandy and it’s clear Greg Miller is saying they’re here to stay. Improvements to the Megaplex and continued business expansion are measurable ways Miller has built Sandy, but perhaps even more important are the many invisible contributions he and his family have made, which tie the fabric of the city together.
