PASADENA, Calif. (Jan. 17, 2013) – As his first official duty, R. Scott Jenkins, president of the Tournament of Roses Association, announced this evening the leadership and organizational structure for the 2013-2014 Tournament year. Robert B. Miller, a Tournament volunteer since 1984, was elected to the Executive Committee and will serve as the Tournament’s president in 2021. He will provide leadership for the 132nd Rose Parade and 107th Rose Bowl Game on Jan. 1, 2021.

Miller most recently served as the chair of the Tournament’s Post Parade Committee. He has also chaired the Coronation/VIP Tailgate, Float Construction, Float Entries, Sports Media and University Entertainment committees. He was first appointed a Tournament Chairperson in 2002 and named a Tournament Director in 2007.

Professionally, Miller is Assistant Superintendent/Senior Vice President, Business and College Services for the Pasadena Area Community College District and Pasadena City College, a position he was appointed to in November 2012. In this capacity, he oversees the college’s fiscal services, business services, human resources, information technology, facilities and construction management, police and safety services, institutional research, and Teaching and Learning Center.

In 1977 he returned to the college, serving as Production Manager of Instructional Television Services for two years, Manager of Media Services for three years, and Assistant Dean, Learning Resources for four years.

From 1990 to 2005, Miller held director and vice president level positions in development and marketing with INTELECOM, a leader in the production of educational television and distance learning courses owned by 38 California Community Colleges. He then returned to PCC as Associate Dean of Academic Support, and proceeded to hold a number of other positions before his current role.

Miller holds an associate degree in telecommunications from PCC, a bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of La Verne, and a master’s degree in Public Administration from California State University, Northridge. Currently, he is a doctoral candidate in the public administration program at the University of La Verne completing his dissertation.

Miller and his wife, Barbara, have lived in the Pasadena area since 1969. They have two adult children – one who is married and the other who is engaged to be married this year.

In addition, the following officers were elected to serve with Miller on the 14-member Executive Committee: Rich Chinen, executive vice president; Ira C. (Mike) Matthiessen, treasurer, and Brad Ratliff, secretary. Sally M. Bixby, president of the Association in 2012-2013, is past president.
