About My Business:

 

Millie Herrera, MBA Millie Herrera is an inspirational business leader who founded and leads The Miami Group, a boutique management, IT, marketing strategies, and public affairs consulting firm that focuses on helping companies grow to their next level of excellence and increase profitability by identifying and leveraging their best human capital, market strengths, and innovative technologies. Millie took a hiatus in leading The Miami Group from February 2012 to July 2013, when she served as a presidential appointee at the U.S. Department of Labor as the Southeast Regional Representative for Secretary of Labor Hilda L. Solis. Responsible for amplifying key programs and initiatives of the department and President Obama’s administration, she served as liaison to federal, state and local government officials and community stakeholders. During her tenure in the Department of Labor, Millie worked with veterans’ groups, federal contractors, other federal agencies, and businesses of all sizes, organizing and participating in job fairs to help veterans find jobs; women’s, farm workers’, faith-based and community organizations, educational institutions, and elected officials in disseminating information on workers’ rights, workforce development, equal pay, and prevention of human trafficking; and chambers of commerce, business and health care organizations to provide information about the Affordable Care Act implementation. Prior to founding The Miami Group, Millie was Product and Marketing Manager at Amadeus North America, Project Manager and Business Systems Analyst for American Bankers Insurance Group (now Assurant Group) and Centrust Bank, all in Miami, Florida; and Dresser Industries in Dallas, Texas. She began her professional career in technology as a programmer-analyst at GPI Grupo de Proyectos in Caracas, Venezuela, and later at City National Bank of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Believing that community involvement is the best way to make the world a better place for all, Millie was a volunteer Guardian Ad Litem in Miami-Dade County since 2003, and serves on the Board of Directors of NAWBO Miami Chapter and Orchestra Miami, and is a member of AAUW Miami Chapter. Milllie held elected office in the Kendall Community Council 12 from 2003 to 2006, and was elected Vice Chair by her colleagues in 2005. She also served as Secretary of the Board of Directors of Union Positiva, a non-profit organization focused on HIV/AIDS prevention and outreach for the Hispanic community from 2002-2005. Millie is an opinion maker and is often sought out for interviews on issues of importance to Hispanics and working Americans by CNN and CNN Español, Telemundo, Univision TV and Radio local and national programs, MegaTV, AmericaTV, Mundo Fox, Caracol Radio, Actualidad Radio, The Miami Herald, El Nuevo Herald, El Diario Las Americas, Reuters, NTN24 Zoom, AP and EFE Americas. Millie also contributes articles to Miami Community Newspapers. Since 2007, Millie is a visiting lecturer for the Masters in Political Communications at the Universidad Pontificia de Salamanca in Salamanca, Spain, and Universidad Camilo Jose Cela in Madrid, Spain. Millie is a 2004 Fellow of the National Hispana Leadership Institute Executive Leadership Program, and completed the Harvard J. F. K. School of Government NHLI Executive Program. She has served on the Community Advisory Board of the Girls Advocacy Project, an intervention program for girls detained in the juvenile justice system. In 2004, she received the Latina of Excellence Award from Hispanic magazine and in 2013 the Glass Ceiling Award from the Florida Diversity Council. In 1997, Millie was a charter member and first president of the Miami-Dade County Chapter of the Democratic Hispanic Caucus of Florida, and in 2000 was elected state Caucus president, a position she held until 2004, and again from 2007 to 2008. During her tenure, Millie worked tirelessly to increase Hispanic voter registration, civic engagement, and voter turnout, traveling the state to form over 10 chapters in counties with large Hispanic populations. In 2008, Hispanic voter registration in Florida increased 10% and voter turnout increased 24%. Millie was a DNC Delegate in 2000, 2004, 2008, and 2012; and in 2004 was appointed to the DNC Platform Committee. Millie earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Management Information Systems in 1983 from Southern Illinois University, in Carbondale, Illinois; and a Master in Business Administration degree in 2001 from Florida International University, in Miami, Florida. Millie Herrera was born in La Habana, Cuba, and in 1967 fled the Castro regime for Spain with her mom, step-dad, and younger sister. Seven months later, the family migrated to the United States and settled in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Millie resides in Miami, Florida, since 1987 with her daughter Ana Maria.
