P.T. Services Inc. has announced the addition of a business development director, Kelli Miller, to its Tiffin office staff.
Miller is an Old Fort High School graduate who attended The Ohio State University, earning a bachelor's degree in business. Her professional experience includes positions with Eaton Corp., Cleveland, and DuPont, Wilmington, Del.
Most recently, she was a senior director for Microsoft in Redmond, Wash., where she delivered information technology solutions for the company's quoting, pricing, ordering, invoicing and customer service functions.
As business development director, Miller assists P.T. Services to recognize, pursue and grow new hospital ventures, and integrate those opportunities with the company's business operations, corporate strategy, performance and changes in the rehabilitation industry.
P.T. Services was looking for "the right person to promote our company, deal with transitions in the industry, and grow the contractual portion of the business to stay competitive," said Mark Somodi, executive director and administrator of P.T. Services, "and Kelli was the perfect candidate."
Somodi said Miller's experience is diverse, encompassing extensive business functions in different industries and various cultures, and as P.T. Services seeks to expand the reach of its services, Miller brings unmatched strength to move the company's strategic development plan forward.
That plan, he said, includes a "more significant national presence in 5-10 years," as well as promoting P.T. Services as an ESOP corporation that offers substantial opportunities for therapists, as well as other employees.
Miller's "extensive experience in the development arm," said Somodi, gives P.T. Services a fresh and innovative approach toward reaching its goals.
Miller said the company's services are "needed in other communities," and P.T. Services is focused on expanding to rural areas that do not have access to rehabilitation services.
Miller said she hopes returning to Tiffin and her position with P.T. Services will bring "good things for a Tiffin company," and allow her to tap into her personal and professional background and give back to the community.
