Founding Partner

Scott D. Miller

40+ Years of Industry Experience
26 Years with ESI

After a long and distinguished career in industry and the ESOP community, Scott Miller, founder of ESI, retired in September 2019.

With over 40 years of experience, Scott has worked with hundreds of companies on business valuations and transitions. Scott founded ESI in 1993 and was a frequent author and speaker for national audiences while giving substantial time to support professional industry organizations, boards and committees.

Scott provided the foundation of ESI as well as years of devoted service and experience. Under the continued leadership of Sandy Paavola, Craig Olinger, and Toni Kildow, ESI will continue to build on what Scott began 25 years ago.

We wish Scott well as he pursues his next entrepreneurial endeavor while remaining one of ESOPs’ best ambassadors.
