OUR TEAM

Walter Miller

Founder

"My goal is to live, to love, and to leave a legacy not by word alone but by deed. Character is doing the right thing even if no one is looking. "From their fruits you will know them." When you do what is right, others will take marked notice and trust grows. I always remember that the only constant is change however as we are currently witnessing today, change for change sake, is not always a good thing. Integrity is foremost, or we simply don't do business as our good name is all we have."

Walter has had a multi-faceted career in Sales and Customer Relationship Management, always with the goal of enhancing and maintaining long term relationships. He worked across areas of Project Management & Implementation ensuring every detail was considered, critical paths documented, and analyzed while always entertaining options not considered the norm.

Walter has had roles as Project Manager, Director of Sales, Contract Negotiator, Certified Covey Leadership Facilitator and received recognition statewide for providing growth to a new organization by well over 11,000 percent.

As Founder, Membership Director, and Chief Organizing Officer for HWIP Walter has directed successful medical and humanitarian relief efforts for Katrina, Bosnia, Croatia, Haiti, Peru, Ecuador and Venezuela (HWIP has shipped over $13.5 million in supplies to mission areas).
