EXECUTIVE CHAIRMAN, Lennar, MIAMI
Miller joined Lennar in 1982 and quickly rose through the ranks of the Miami-based home builder that was co-founded by his father, Leonard Miller. He now serves as executive chairman of Lennar, after 21 years as CEO. He was named one of America’s Most Powerful People by Forbes in 2000.
During his time as CEO at Lennar, which operates in 21 states, Miller led the firm in acquisitions of builders such as U.S. Homes and WCI Communities that more than doubled the company’s size. Its 2018 merger with CalAtlantic Group made Lennar the largest home builder in the United States based on revenue. In 2019, the publicly traded company delivered nearly 52,000 homes, a company record, and generated $22.3 billion in revenue. Lennar also owns financial services companies providing title, mortgage and insurance services.
Miller, who mowed lawns at model homes as a kid, holds an undergraduate degree from Harvard and a law degree from the University of Miami. He has served as the chair of the University of Miami board of trustees and the Joint Center for Housing Studies Policy Advisory Board at Harvard; he served on boards of organizations such as Builder Homesite, Alonzo Mourning Charities, Overtown Youth Center and Five Point Holdings. In 2015, he and his siblings, Jeffrey Miller and Leslie Miller Saiontz, received the United Way’s Tocqueville Award for Outstanding Philanthropy.
