Since Miller became general manager of the high-tech manufacturer in 2012, Tegra Medical's Frankin facility has grown revenue 30 percent. By transforming the management team, adding more than 50 jobs, steering efforts to install automation and driving an engaging culture, his leadership has made Tegra a strategic partner to many of the world's largest medical device companies.

In his role as general manager, Miller has led donation efforts for Hasbro Children's Hospital, American Heart Association, Franklin Food Pantry, Franklin YMCA, Toys for Tots, National Education for Assistance Dog Service and the American Red Cross.

What will the title of your memoirs be? "Family Came First" – my focus in all I do is to provide the best for my wonderful wife and children.

Who gave you the best career advice? As a 22-year-old supervisor, my manager (Patrick O'Connor) told me to always have a career plan five years beyond my current position.

Where do you get your motivation? I've spent my whole life trying to emulate my mom's work ethic.

If I hadn't taken this career path, I would have liked to... follow friends and family into law enforcement.
