ICT industry executive authors book for new, prospective CEOs

Dec. 8, 2020
Bill Miller, who has served in executive roles for multiple network-infrastructure companies, has penned The Rookie CEO.

Bill Miller, a veteran of the information and communications technology (ICT) industry who has held executive positions with companies including ADC, 3Com, Fiber Mountain, and Fujitsu, recently published a book with practical strategies and tactics for new chief executive officers (CEOs) as well as aspiring CEOs. The Rookie CEO – You Can’t Make This Stuff Up! is described as “a GPS for aspiring CEOs and leaders.

“It is filled with actual stories about 9 rookie CEOs from different backgrounds, who bring unique philosophies and leadership styles to their new role and that drives the culture of the company,” commented Scott B. Allan, who reviewed the book.

Miller, who operates the consulting company Beelinebill Enterprises, explains, “The reader will learn from actual lessons about people who make the organization successful, what behaviors cross the line, what activities and behaviors result in excellent and poor execution, and what successful leadership looks like.”

The book introduces the PPLC framework:

  • Path to CEO
  • Philosophy
  • Leadership style
  • Culture

The book “shows how anyone can become a CEO from any background, and how they will lead their new company in their new role as a result of their individual PPLC,” Miller says.
