She is a highly talented and creative executive whose business acumen is matched by her leadership capabilities and sound judgment. She is eminently qualified, and her appointment is well received within the company."

Best known for its wet/dry vacs, the company also manufactures motors, air movers, fans, blowers, trash cans and mop buckets. Shop Vac has been a privately held company owned by the Miller family for more than 60 years.
