Dr. Larry Miller, vice president of learning and workforce development at Greenville Technical College, has been appointed to the Greenville Area Development Corporation’s board of directors by Greenville County Council Chairman Dan Tripp. Miller’s term on the 12-member board is underway and will end June 30, 2026.

The Greenville Area Development Corporation (GADC) works to improve the quality of life of every Greenville County citizen by facilitating investment and job growth from new and existing companies. GADC serves as an intermediary for client companies with local and state government and the Greenville business community. To further the organization’s mission, GADC coordinates resources with other community-based groups dedicated to promoting economic development.

Dr. Larry Miller has served as vice president for learning and workforce development at Greenville Technical College since 2020, leading the college’s five academic schools as well as the Corporate and Continuing Education division. He has served as vice-chair of the Greenville County Workforce Development Board and on the United Way of Greenville County Impact Board. He currently serves on the Greenville Chamber board of directors and the Federal Reserve Industry Roundtable.

Miller earned undergraduate and graduate degrees in business administration from the State University of New York at Buffalo and a Ph.D. in public administration with concentrations in public finance and social policy from Syracuse University. He began his career as a management consultant with Arthur Anderson and has spent the past two decades in higher education as a research scholar at the University of Washington, professor at Rutgers University, and dean of the School of Education at Florida SouthWestern State College.

“I look forward to furthering the work of the Greenville Area Development Corporation through board service,” said Miller. “The organization’s mission of promoting job growth aligns closely with Greenville Technical College’s mission of transforming lives through education, giving area employers the talent pipeline they need to succeed. As companies considering an Upstate location have shifted their top priority to talent acquisition and retention, we need to be prepared to meet their needs.”
