Robert Miller Biography
Robert Warren Miller was born in Quincy, Massachusetts, has lived in Hong Kong since 1960 but is a British citizen. He studied at Cornell University School of Hotel Administration, graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Hotel Administration in 1955.
Just five years later in 1960 Miller, along with Chuck Feeney, founded DFS. The idea of duty-free shopping was still very much in its infancy then, but over the subsequent years and decades the business expanded and extended its interests to become the largest travel retailer in the world. Its corporate headquarters are still in Hong Kong, where it began, but it is very much a global organization today. Feeney sold his share of the business in 1996 to Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy, and it is with the high-end fashion retailer who Miller shares the majority of the business. Robert Miller founded Search Investment Group Ltd in 1973. He is the chairman and CEO of the international investment company.
Miller is a keen sailor and his yacht Mari-Cha IV achieved a world record for crossing the Atlantic in record time for its class, with both Robert and his son in law on the crew. He has three children, one of which Marie-Chantal, is the Crown Princess of Greece.
