The Buena Vista University Board of Trustees recently announced the addition of Gregg Miller of Marshalltown, as the newest member of the Board.
Miller has been appointed to serve on the board's Academic Affairs Committee.
A lifelong radio enthusiast, Miller founded RACOM Corporation in 1972 in Marshalltown and serves as its president and chief executive officer. He was the first to design and construct, in 1982, a network of 800 MHz analog radiotelephone systems, the predecessor to cellular. Today, RACOM is one of the largest mobile radio dealers in the United States and manages one of the largest digital wireless networks in the Upper Midwest. Its EDACS (Enhanced Digital Access Communication System) network serves approximately 10,000 police, fire and EMS customers who are critical communications users. Miller studied physics from 1960 to 1963 at Iowa State University. He is a past chair of the ISU Engineering College Industrial Advisory Council, a past chair of the SMRA council of the Personal Communications Industries Association and a former member of the board of Marshalltown Medical and Surgical Center.
"We are pleased to welcome Gregg Miller to the Board of Trustees," says BVU President Fred Moore. "Buena Vista University is fortunate to gain the expertise he will bring to the Board." Miller has been married to the former Sally Clark of Waukon, Iowa, for 40 years. They have three grown children and are the proud grandparents of six grandchildren. Miller's greatest hobby is his business, but he is also an avid amateur radio operator.
