Buried in the article was this brief mention of the company's future office space needs:
If the company expands to $150 million to $250 million in sales, Miller said he might open a corporate office in Clayton, where he lives.
This took me back to a speech given by Mark Mantovani, CEO of downtown-based NSI, at the Partnership for Downtown St. Louis' annual meeting in July. To paraphrase, he stated that local CEOs need to locate their businesses based on what's best for the region - and strengthening our downtown is one of the easiest ways to improve our region - instead of choosing an office that's simply close to their homes.
Hopefully Mr. Miller will give downtown a shot when it comes time to lease space for his growing business; I'm sure he'd be welcomed with open arms! The impact his firm could have on the downtown renaissance would certainly be worth a few minutes' extra drive time.
