Panel Experts From:
  • La-Z-Boy of Greater Vancouver - Gerald Miller

Gerald’s 30-year journey in the furniture and business world began when his older brother, Tim, felt sorry for him and offered him a job working in the warehouse of his furniture business. Little did either of them know that that chance would spark a lifelong passion for both furniture and business. That passion lead the brothers, along with Gerald’s wife Carla, to open their first La-Z-Boy Home Furnishings and Decor store at the start of the Millennium. Gerald spends his days overseeing the strategic direction and vision for La-Z-Boy Metro Vancouver’s staff of over 80 and lives with his wife and four children in Abbotsford. Gerald is also passionate about giving both his time and resources to aid projects in Haiti, Guatemala, Columbia, Ecuador and right here in Vancouver.
