Ken Miller

Long before his illustrious career in business was so much as a glint in his eye, Ken Miller possessed a drive to succeed and a desire to serve others. When he landed in the U.S. from Jamaica at just 15 years old, he hit the ground running—literally.

His exceptional talent for and a strong commitment to athletics and academics took him from high school to New York’s Syracuse University, where he ran track and majored in economics. Rather than follow the footsteps of his classmates into a lucrative career, Ken joined the Army and spent the next eight years in various combat units, including Haiti, Iraq, and Bosnia.

After he returned to civilian life, he launched into his professional career, serving for 20 years in logistics rising to the title of vice president. With laser-like focus, he absorbed the intricacies of operations, sales, transportation, budgets, intermodal operations, contract negotiations, customer relationships, maintenance, safety, and budget preparation, and along the way, obtained his supply chain certificate from the University of Arkansas.

In 2018, Ken took his broad expertise and his commitment to business—and people—and founded Saint Elizabeth Capital, a Chicago-based private equity firm that acquires, manages, and builds small- to middle-market companies. Ken recently met with The Top 100 Magazine to share more about his background, his company, and his success in building a thriving business.
