Since he assumed leadership of LA Chemical 15 years ago, the company has grown exponentially. Through increased market share and acquisitions, the firm has become the largest, fastest-growing independent chemical distribution company in the U.S.

Recently Mr. Miller and his friend, Robert Matich, who graduated from Utah State’s College of Civil Engineering in 1989, funded a joint scholarship between the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business and the College of Engineering.
