Tom Miller

July 14th, 2022

Congratulations to Tom Miller (pictured on the left with CEO, Mike Beckley, on the right) for retiring after over 24 memorable years with South Coast Lumber, primarily as our Lumber Sales Manager.

Tom has worked in the industry since he was 18 years old. He started out with Stimson Lumber as a chain puller, then he drove a forklift, and eventually took over in shipping where he became acquainted with many customers and their orders. Sales had never crossed his mind until he was approached and decided to give it a shot.

Through seemingly unpredictable markets, Tom has pioneered our lumber sales, no matter the trends, through his genuine relationships, remarkable intuition, and perseverance. His integrity is truly second to none. When you interact with Tom, you can feel that you have his dedicated attention. When he gives you his word, you can absolutely count on him to follow through.

Tom has always taken incredible ownership in his work and has stood for and represented the core values that we strive to uphold as a company. He has built a rock-solid reputation from his honest, diligent, and personable personality. It’s hard to imagine South Coast without Tom Miller, even if he is no longer immersed, he will always be a part of the SOCOMI family. Tom certainly deserves to reap all of the retirement benefits imaginable. Thank you for everything, Tom!
