As third-generation owners of the company, Charley Miller will remain president of Miller Lumber, his brother Harry Miller will continue as vice president, and his sister Connie Marshall will remain the CFO. Charley and Harry have elected to become a part of the Kodiak Building Partners ownership group.

According to a press release announcing the deal, the Miller family “took their time in seeking a company with which to partner. In their search, they were drawn to Kodiak’s ability to always provide honest and straightforward answers to their questions, their decentralized operating philosophy, and a proven track record of respecting an acquisition’s name and heritage. They were also pleased to learn about Kodiak’s culture of giving back to their communities, as it was important that Miller Lumber continue to do so. The Millers were confident that the future of their company and their team of over 20 employees would be secure and bright with Kodiak.”
