Kim Miller

Vice Chair

Kim Miller is the CEO of SCARPA North America and a veteran of the outdoor industry. As a lifelong climber and backcountry skier, his passion for the outdoors and business led him into the outdoor industry at an early age while growing up in Denver, Colorado. He has held numerous positions in the industry over the course of his career and has worked as an outdoor educator, mountain guide, sales representative, and specialty retailer in addition to his experience in executive leadership.

Some of Kim’s most notable accomplishments include being an original founder and employee-owner of Black Diamond Equipment and the creation of SCARPA North America as the center of operations for SCARPA SpA in North America. Throughout Kim’s career, he has made service, advocacy, and giving back to the industry a priority. In addition to his role as a WRA Board of Directors member, Kim also serves on the Colorado Outdoor Recreation Advisory Council and Executive Committee and is a former SIA Board of Directors member.

“The outdoor industry is worth almost $900 billion nationally and accounts for 7.6 million jobs – we need to use our collective voice responsibly to leverage the changes that we need to have happen to protect the West. WRA has the knowledge, expertise, and drive to get this important work done. I am thrilled to partner with them to protect the places and the communities that are critical to our industry and the West’s way of life.”
