“GEN Miller is an exceptional addition to our team and comes at one of the most exciting times for our company as we begin the historic process of fielding the Next Generation Squad Weapons [NGSW] with the U.S. Army,” said Ron Cohen, president and CEO of SIG Sauer. “GEN Miller knows the complexities of the battlefield, what’s necessary to achieve overmatch, and most importantly how to succeed. His experience in close quarters combat combined with his proven leadership ability will be invaluable to us.”
GEN Miller is a graduate of the United States Military Academy and was commissioned as an infantry officer in the U.S. Army. After completing Ranger school, he was assigned to a platoon in 3rd Battalion, 325th Infantry (Airborne), 82nd Airborne Division.

“It is an honor to join the team at SIG Sauer. While I served on active duty, I’ve always been a proponent of ensuring that our service members had the right lethal capabilities available to them in order to safeguard our national interests, and I note the relentless focus from the SIG Sauer team in ensuring their requirements are met,” Miller said.
