  • Bode Miller
    Bode Miller
    World Cup Alpine Skier,
    US Olympian
    Bode Miller, the most successful male American alpine ski racer of all time, capturing 33 World Cup victories, six Olympic medals, five World Championship medals – four gold, and six World Cup globes, has been busy in retirement. Now heavily involved in a myriad of business ventures, Bode saw first-hand how companies in multiple industries ranging from mid-size domestic organizations to global Fortune 50 conglomerates have a real need when it comes to modernizing their technology infrastructure, from security to global scalability, in highly competitive environments. He recognized early on in his career that companies he partnered with on the slopes who failed to adapt, quickly fell behind. This was the inception point when Bode quickly became involved in the strategic planning and R&D of those companies he would partner with going forward.
