40 under Forty winners (from left) Emily DeGray, Alexander Dunn, Jonathan Miller and Amy Peterson.

Since joining YOU six years ago, Miller has designed and successfully developed systems and practices to streamline operations and improve efficiencies. In the past two years, his efforts resulted in a 60-percent reduction in agency write-offs. He has been a significant contributor to the planning of YOU's signature fundraiser, the annual Gala for Kids, steadily increasing its profits the last four years.

He serves as the secretary of Rutland Little League and coaches his children in their sporting endeavors.

What is your advice to aspiring young business people? Money shouldn't be the only reason you stay in or leave a position; professional growth and opportunities for learning should be just as important.

By the time I am 50, I would like to… be the CEO of a nonprofit.

I prepare for the unexpected by... ensuring I have a cross-trained, adaptable team that understands what could happen, prepares for possibilities and executes effectively when they occur.

If you could have dinner with any four people, who would they be? WWII Navy Veteran James Miller (my grandfather), Robin Williams, Tim Russert and DB Cooper.
