President, Executive Creative Director
A co-founder of MillerVolpe in 2001, Geordie Miller leads all creative and strategic branding services for the award-winning ad agency. Geordie cut his teeth on Madison Avenue (well, actually on 48th and Third), where he started his career as an advertising copywriter in 1985. He continued to hone his marketing and advertising skills at Omnicom and Interpublic Group agencies, working on major accounts including KFC, Coppertone, and Kodak, as well as b2b and pharmaceutical brands in New York, Philadelphia and Princeton. Geordie studied advertising at the School of Visual Arts and is a graduate of Duke University. Much to his wife and kids’ chagrin, he still gloats about “his basketball team.”
