“We are going to be compliant and so are our suppliers,” Miller said. “There is nothing that a non-compliant supplier could do that would make us leave a compliant supplier. The risk is too great and it’s not as complicated as some people think.”
Treacy said Miller provided crucial leadership when the PTI was stuck in a “VHS vs. Beta” situation. Two software developers had come up with four-digit voice pick codes and the PTI working group was unable to reach a decision.
“Teri volunteered, and with two other retailers she got the research done. Without her leadership we’d still be fumbling around,” Treacy said.
When she isn’t working with vendors or participating in PTI workshops, Miller said you can find her watching her son play sports. Other than him, her joy in life comes from the fact that she earned certification as a public accountant and an information systems administrator and the fact that she can share her passion and expertise with others.
“I have been so fortunate to have been coached and encouraged by some very talented people,” she said, “and I get a tremendous amount of joy from watching others grow and succeed.”
