About Steve Blue
With more than three decades of management, executive and consulting experience in markets all over the world, business growth authority Steve Blue’s career credits include forming astoundingly successful international ventures and transforming corporate and entrepreneurial businesses with no international presence into global powerhouses. This visionary executive success-oriented speaker and consultant, currently serving as CEO of Miller Ingenuity (www.milleringenuity.com), is a globally regarded “turnaround specialist” whose skills in strict operational control, cash management and high stakes negotiations, coupled with his firm but fair nature, have transformed companies into industry giants.
Blue has had an instinct for outperforming his peers in profit generation from the beginning of his career. Early on he became the “go to” guy, taking the helm of underperforming divisions and transforming them into highly profitable corporate units. This is where he honed a deep knowledge of most functional areas of a company, and Blue worked in industries as diverse as publishing and industrial automation. In each and every assignment he substantially increased productivity and reduced costs.
Now as an esteemed corporate CEO of one of the longest standing companies in its industry, Blue demonstrates a rare and enviable gift for avoiding the kind of cookie-cutter, follower thinking that kills innovation and leads to stagnation. He fuels his business model—and those of other enterprises he assists—with unquenched curiosity and a relentless scan of the horizon in pursuit of new opportunities and consistent, record-breaking businesses performance. This has established Blue as a world-class expert on crafting business models that lead to managed, measured, and meaningful growth. In his 32 years in business, the last 15 as a P&L executive, Blue has solved unimaginable problems and has never failed to deliver double digit gains.
In recent years, after achieving amazing levels of personal career achievement, Blue has become an in-demand keynote speaker across a wide variety of industries and audiences who benefit from his enlightening, empowering and proven growth and success methodologies.
Blue holds a Bachelor of Science Degree from the State University of New York and a MBA from Regis University.
