Chesapeake Corporate Advisors Hires John Miller as a Director


Chesapeake Corporate Advisors (CCA) is pleased to announce that former commercial banking officer and Chief Financial Officer, John Miller has joined the firm as a Director. Miller’s recent positions were as Chief Operating Officer at Security Associates then as Chief Financial Officer at KeraLink International. Miller significantly contributed with increasing the value of the companies prior to successfully executing liquidity events for both companies.

Miller brings over 25 years of experience in commercial banking and corporate leadership to CCA. During his 17 year commercial banking career, he worked with privately held middle market companies across multiple industries. He has spent the last 10 years in executive management roles with a national sign manufacturer and installer, a residential and commercial security alarm company and a not-for-profit medical distribution company.

Miller will be a Director in the Firm's Corporate Strategy practice and will be responsible for providing Strategic CFO, other Strategy and M&A services to CCA’s clients.

CCA, founded in 2005, is a boutique investment banking and corporate advisory firm that successfully serves investor-owned and closely held emerging growth and middle market companies that are looking to create and/or realize shareholder value. Miller’s commercial banking and executive experience with middle market companies, combined with his extensive network of professional relationships, will complement CCA’s role in serving the middle market.

Miller had a strong relationship with CCA in both his role as a commercial banker and in his executive management roles. His first-hand knowledge of CCA’s unique approach to helping companies maximize their value, then successfully exit the market when appropriate, is one of the things that excites John about joining CCA.

“John brings an amazingly valuable skillset to CCA by combining his commercial banking experience with his prior CFO skills with his recent experience with complex M&A transactions”, says Charlie Maskell, Founder and CEO of CCA. “I have interacted significantly with John in his role as a commercial lender and as a CFO. In both he brought valuable perspective because of his ability to quickly analyze information while developing practical solutions. We are thrilled to have John on the CCA team.”

“I have known Charlie Maskell for over 20 years and have also known and worked with the CCA team. I have always been very impressed with the high level of work they have delivered to companies with whom I have been involved. I am thrilled to be joining CCA and look forward to helping them continue their obvious success”, says Miller.
