CANDIDATE: Scott Miller

Scott Miller is an LGBTQ rights activist and philanthropist. As co-chair of the Gill Foundation’s board of directors, Miller directs the foundation’s national giving strategy to advance LGBTQ equality, including public education campaigns to ban conversion therapy and end discrimination against LGBTQ Americans. At the foundation, Miller also oversees local efforts to ensure equal opportunity for all Coloradans, including generous support for K-12 STEM education at numerous Colorado public schools.

Previously, Miller served as an account vice president at UBS Wealth Management in Denver, Colorado. Miller’s extensive experience with the Gill Foundation, which supports non-profit organizations across the United States that advance the rights of LGBTQ Americans, and his strong experience in business administration, management consulting, and the real estate industry and his demonstrated ability to lead large teams makes him a well-qualified candidate to be the U.S. Ambassador to the Swiss Confederation and the Principality of Liechtenstein.
