SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 News) – The Larry H. Miller Group is starting the process of searching for a new CEO. Gail Miller, chairman and owner of the group, announced Tuesday that Clark Whitworth is stepping down after 31 years with the organization, the last four of which he served as CEO, to serve as a mission president for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Whitworth and his wife Jennifer, will serve for a three-year period beginning on July 1, 2019. The couple will supervise the missionary and service work of 500 full-time individuals in the Villahermosa Mexico Mission.
Whitworth, who will remain as CEO throughout the transition process, says his faith has always been a priority for him and that it’s been a privilege to fill the role of CEO for the Larry H. Miller Group.
“The Larry H. Miller Group of Companies is now entering a new phase, and I am confident that we have the right leadership and staff in place to meet its future challenges and embrace new opportunities,” said Whitworth. “I have been fortunate to have worked over the past 31 years with some of the best and brightest people anywhere.”
Gail Miller said she’s very thankful and appreciative of the work Whitworth has done over the past 31 years.
“He has done an exceptional job leading this organization, and his many accomplishments will have a profound and lasting effect,” Miller said. “Our family, board and leadership team are committed to perpetuating the values and preserving the strengths that have been foundational to our success for the last four decades. This includes hiring the most qualified CEO candidate to protect our interests and continue the momentum and growth of the company into the foreseeable future.”
