Miller Joins PUD Board

Posted Monday, January 11, 2021

Skagit PUD welcomes Andrew Miller to its Board of Commissioners. Miller was elected to the seat previously held by Al Littlefield, who retired from the Board after 36 years.

“Water is at the heart of what makes Skagit County so remarkable,” Miller said. “I’m committed to continuing the great work that has been done across our community to conserve this precious resource.”

Miller brings a broad range of business experience to the commission. He currently serves as CEO of Spinach Bus Ventures, which owns Tulip Town, Fairhaven Mill, and Skagit Acres (formerly Skagit Valley Gardens).

A Skagit Valley native and Mount Vernon High School graduate, Miller holds a Juris Doctorate from the Seattle University School of Law, an MBA from Pacific Lutheran University, a Masters in Strategic Studies from the Naval Postgraduate School, a Masters in Organizational Leadership from Gonzaga University and is a graduate of the Air Command and Staff College and the National Defense University Joint Staff College.

After a career in the Air Force as an intelligence officer, followed by high-profile management stints at Expedia, Weyerhaeuser, and Amazon, Miller returned to Skagit Valley to raise his family.

From 2016-18, Miller’s background and experience in law, business, and strategy led him to work for the Economic Development Alliance of Skagit County as the Director of Business Retention and Expansion.

A committed community member, Miller serves on the Viva Farms Board, the Downtown Mount Vernon Association economic development board, the Anacortes economic development committee, and has done strategy and team-building work for the Port of Skagit, Home Trust of Skagit, Sedro-Woolley Downtown Association, and the Helping Hands Food Bank.

When he’s not chasing around the Valley to activities with his six kids and wife Holly, you’re most likely to run into Miller hiking, camping, climbing, and boating in the North Cascades and San Juan.
