2016 Young Memphian: Todd Miller

The following is a feature in the Memphis Crossroads Magazine. Click here to view the issue in its entirety.

In conversations with this year’s Young Memphis honorees, the word “passion” comes up frequently. It’s something they all have in common, despite their diverse backgrounds, industries and interests.
 
The Young Memphians featured on the pages that follow are all passionate about making a difference – in their career fields, in their communities and, most notably, in the futures of the generations to follow them.
 
They all speak of their love for the city, their desire to help make positive changes, their hopes for a stronger, more united community and their beliefs that even the smallest gesture of goodwill can have a powerful impact on the lives of many.
 
While each one of them is striving to be highly successful at his or her career, they’re also each going the extra mile to use that success to make Memphis a better place.
 
So throw away everything you may have read about Millennials being uninvolved residents who want to obtain as much as possible by doing as little as possible and get ready to be inspired. These young professionals are only a few of the many dedicated young Memphians out there who have their eye on a brighter tomorrow.
 
Memphis, meet your future leaders.

Director of Sales, Yuletide Office Solutions
 
The name of Todd Miller’s family-owned company, Yuletide Office Solutions, evokes images of Christmastime and giving, so it’s no wonder that giving back to the community plays such a strong role in Miller’s life.
 
The list of local nonprofits with which Miller has been involved dates back to 2013, and during that time, Miller has touched causes – either as a board member, an active participant or a donor – that support families, animals, youth and numerous other community issues.

His advice to other young professionals who want to also give back:
“Start by asking yourself what you enjoy. All these organizations have different needs, so get involved with something you think you could really support and invest in that success,” said Miller, adding that he can’t stress the importance of networking enough, both for professional and community enrichment. “I’ve taken my own network and used that to bring people together.”
 
Currently, Miller is the chairman of the Mid-South Food Bank’s Operation Feed food drive. At Yuletide, employees also are required to participate in two nonprofit events a year. He urges other businesses to consider adopting this practice.
 
“On a macro level it could be huge if every business around the city could do something similar.”
