Boston Consulting Group partner Simon Miller has been named as the new CEO of Anglicare.

Effective on the 7th of February 2022, Miller will step into the shoes of current CEO Grant Millard, who will be retiring after more than 10 years at the Christian non-profit organisation. Miller was selected from a cohort of candidates, following a “rigorous selection process conducted by a Board sub-committee along with Archbishop Kanishka Raffel and the Chairman,” said Anglicare in a statement.

Miller has been with Boston Consulting Group since 2007, and currently is a managing director and senior partner at the firm. He is a core member of the Industrial Goods, Operations, and Strategy practices, and he co-leads BCG’s infrastructure work in Australia.

He specialises in helping clients in asset-intensive industries such as construction, engineering, mining, transportation and logistics with developing growth plans, undertaking major capital projects, procurement, and improving internal efficiency. Miller also is an expert with Turn (Boston Consulting Group’s restructuring wing) and Gamma (the firm’s advanced analytics division).

Prior to Boston Consulting Group, Miller held senior roles in the Commonwealth and NSW governments, including first assistant secretary of the strategy and delivery division of the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet, deputy director-general of the Department of Water and Energy, economic policy director to the premier of New South Wales, and senior policy adviser to the minister for transport and roads. 

Miller was ultimately selected because of his “personal alignment to Anglicare’s vision, mission and values, his strategic business acumen, his extensive experience in people management and his capacity to lead and motivate the organisation towards its strategic goals” said Millard. 

Commenting on his new challenge, Miller said he was attracted to Anglicare’s long history serving the city for Christ as well as the future opportunities. 

“Anglicare is an organisation that has such a wonderful history. 160 plus years of serving the city for Christ…that history, that richness, is deeply attractive to me.”

“But I also think that it’s the future. The way that we can continue to deepen and extend the way we love the city in the name of Christ is really exciting, and I’m really looking forward to the challenge and opportunity of doing that. And those things together – that history and that future – are why I’m really attracted to Anglicare.”
