“People and culture matter to me enormously. I have gotten to know the SourceDay team well and I felt a strong connection. I knew this was a place I wanted to be a part of.” ~Michael Miller
The wins keep coming for the SourceDay Squad! This time, it’s the addition of a new COO. His name is Michael Miller, and it’s about time we all got to know him!
For starters, Michael and his family are longtime Austinites, a big plus for a company that prides itself on its own brand of Austin culture. The team is excited about the impact this new hire will have on the atmosphere and camaraderie at the company.
He and his wife Morgan have two teenagers, Jackson (18) and Reese (13). You can find them traveling the world together to experience new cultures, have new experiences, and take risks. And their spoiled little rat terrier, Scarlet, is always there to welcome them home.
Michael has held multiple C-level roles at early stage and emerging supply chain technology companies. He was COO at Convey, a portfolio company that partners with fellow SourceDay investor, Silverton Partners. In that role, he oversaw the product, engineering, proserve, customer success, and channel functions through a period of high growth until its acquisition in 2021. He also held leadership roles at supply chain tech companies project44 and Mothership Technologies, both leaders in their space.
When asked about joining the SourceDay team, Michael expressed his own excitement and a vision for how to move the company forward.
“There are so many wonderful building blocks already here. Great team and culture, a product that is creating real value for 200+ customers, and a unique, differentiated value proposition,” he said. “My focus will be building on that foundation: unlocking growth, establishing processes and tools for scale, creating more repeatability, and knocking down silos between teams.”
An extensive background in supply chain tech has given Michael the wisdom to identify opportunities and work to meet those challenges for customers.
“I believe there is a ton of value to be created in tackling the hardest supply chain problems,” he said. “The interaction between companies and their direct material suppliers is mission critical and extremely difficult to do well. As a problem solver myself, this really resonates with me.”
Michael values doing things with integrity, emotional intelligence, and a focus on people. His strategy and operations knowledge will no doubt have an immediate impact on a SourceDay team that is already one of the highest growth companies in the supply chain tech space.
