Daren Miller joined the Pro QC International team nearly a year ago and is based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA.
Daren serves an important role as Operations Coordinator for the North America team. In that role, he supports Account Managers in the United States by identifying the availability of local inspectors and/or auditors that meet client requirements. Daren works with suppliers and other partners to confirm scheduling and miscellaneous details. He is a front line resource for identifying new resources as well. Daren plays an integral role in scaling up to meet client needs.
The United States is currently among the fastest growing market for Pro QC globally.
The North America team delivers rework/sort supervision, QC inspections, supplier audits, short-term quality support with direct-hire options, etc.
When asked what he enjoys the most about working with Pro QC, Daren says, "It's the variety of tasks that come up on a daily basis. There certainly is never a dull moment for the team. As I've been with the organization, I've seen us grow in leaps and bounds. There is a focus to the changes taking place, and it's an exciting time to be here. I enjoy the challenges and the ability to continually learn new things from my teammates. Skills I've gained help to make me a well-rounded asset."
Daren's background is in visual communications and computer graphics. Prior to joining Pro QC, he worked with American Society for Quality for two decades. Pro QC is heavily engaged in ASQ and had worked with Daren on several occasions over the years. While working with ASQ, he was able to obtain relevant industry certifications and is looking towards the opportunity of gaining another in the audit field. Currently, Daren is a Certified Quality Improvement Associate (CQIA) and Certified Six Sigma Yellow Belt (CSSYB).
When he's not busy ensuring clients have on-site representation to meet their needs, Daren's attention to detail affords a successful hobby as an avid photographer. He also dabbles in design for friends and family. A self identified obsession for Daren is his new Harley-Davidson, a company local to Milwaukee since 1903 that today serves riders globally as "one of the most recognized and revered brands in the world."
He describes "the freedom of the open road and the community he's now a part of as something special."
Daren is happily married with three playful pups (PJ, Stitches, and Sunny). With his wife embarking on a new real estate career this year, Daren will tell you it's "time for a bigger house."
Daren joined the Pro QC team at exactly the right time. His organization and attention to detail has been invaluable as we continue to grow within the United States. We are grateful to have him.
