Miles Anthony Smith

Miles Anthony Smith, an ambivert and serial specialist, has held senior, executive leadership positions for businesses and non-profits over the past fifteen years. He has broad management skills across many functional business disciplines in accounting, finance, human resources, marketing, and leadership, earning a Bachelor of Music Composition degree from Oral Roberts University and a master's in Business Administration from Oklahoma State University. Miles currently works for Imaginasium as director of digital marketing. Miles is the author of the Why Leadership Sucks and the Why Career Advice Sucks series.

Miles has a knack for spotting and developing talented, cohesive teams focused on new product development and digital/content marketing, resulting in top line and bottom line growth in the following companies:

Consumer Products Company in Green Bay, Wisconsin
Increased revenues 48% in 2 years from $2.3 Million to $3.4 Million through new product development
Increased company operating cash flow and profits by 33% and 25% by reducing expenses and streamlining operations

Consumer Goods Company in Tulsa, Oklahoma
Increased profit margin from -10% to +27% by restructuring the company and repositioning its focus on new line of products.

Born a Hoosier, raised an Okie, and currently residing in the frozen tundra of Green Bay, Wisconsin, Miles is happily married to Carolyn and is a proud father of three. Now in his mid-thirties, he was fortunate to have been given a significant leadership opportunity by his father at the age of twenty-five. He is a classically trained violist, violinist, and composer, with passions in the fields of small-business management, marketing, macroeconomics, servant leadership, and classical education.

Miles, a Generation X leader and author, cares enough about organizational health to make the tough decisions, hire and coach the right people, set clear expectations, develop a strong team culture, and strengthen organizational cash flow, exhibiting both humility and fierce resolve. His mission in life is: "To chart the course, pave the pathway, and light the lane for others to eclipse my own success in leadership."
