John Miller, CEO of the American Red Cross on Long Island, was appointed CEO of the Red Cross Suffolk chapter in January 2011. Subsequently, Miller directed the mergers of the Nassau, Suffolk and Shelter Island organizations into one, stronger, Long Island Chapter. In the process, he upgraded the management and fundraising infrastructure. Miller's diversified executive experience allows him to effectively lead the organization in providing humanitarian services to more than 2.8 million residents and to be its external "face.” In recognition of John’s strong leadership, he was named Outstanding CEO for 2014 by Long Island Business News.
Miller has overseen and shaped local responses to high-impact events including Hurricane Irene and Superstorm Sandy, during which he worked with government officials at the federal, state and local levels, as well as with the media, celebrities, donors and Red Cross employees and volunteers from across the country and around the world. He is also a member of the Senior Management Team of the American Red Cross Greater New York Region.
Immediately before joining the Red Cross, Miller was Chief of Staff at the Food Bank For New York City, one of the largest operations of its kind in the United States. Miller was responsible for managing day-to-day operations as well as serving as a direct liaison for the CEO to internal and external constituencies, including the Board, executive staff, funders, government agencies and business partners. Miller also publicly represented the organization at high-profile NYC events.
Prior to the Food Bank, Miller’s most notable experience included serving as Commissioner of Public Works for the Town of Babylon, N.Y., and as COO of Mercy College, a highly regarded 10,000 student, multi-campus private college.
Miller is currently a member of the Presidential Advisory Committee of the Urban League of Long Island, the Town of Babylon Zoning Board of Appeals and the Executive Committee of the Long Term Recovery Group of the Long Island Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster.
He attended Hofstra University, where he received his MBA and BBA, and was an Adjunct Business Instructor at SUNY College at Old Westbury. He is certified as a Senior Professional in Human Resources by SHRM. Miller is a member of the 2013 class of the Energeia Partnership, the Academy for Regional Stewardship at Molloy College. In 2013, Miller received the American Red Cross Chapter Partnership Award from the New York Penn Blood Region and was also recognized as one of Long Island’s Top “40 under 40.”
