Richard Miles has been a successful entrepreneur and senior executive in the Fortune 100 for over 25 years. He sold his first business to Ingersoll-Rand in 1985, led global marketing for Polaroid’s Magnetics division, and ran a successful consulting firm for 12 years before selling it to a client he helped grow from startup to over $50 million in annual sales. His clients included Hitachi, Memorex, Computer Associates and many others in the technology world. For many years, Richard was a featured speaker at many industry events, including Consumer Electronics Show and Softex, an innovative program of the Brazilian government, mentoring Brazilian entrepreneurs in marketing products into North America. Richard is currently consulting with a variety of tech firms in the US and Canada.
As a non-profit executive, Richard served as CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Bay Area, guiding that agency through a merger of three local agencies into a stable, sustainable regional organization and tripling the number of young people with a mentor. Later, as Senior Director of Marketing for the Jewish Community Federation of San Francisco, he helped redesign its Endowment business practices and produced its first annual report.
He is a former Board member of Kidpower / Fullpower International, an innovative program that teaches self-defense and empowerment skills to children as young as 6 to seniors in their 80’s. He served as Board Co-Chair of Kehilla Community Synagogue and currently serves on their Spiritual Life Practices Committee. He is excited about the prospects of serving foster youth and providing innovative and quality mentoring with Strive For. Richard knows the impact mentoring has on a life directly as a Little Brother himself, having been “matched” with his Big Brother Karl Sussman since 1965.
