Bill and Sharon Miller, of BCG Creations Announce Retirement

[Montreal, QC, 04-18-2024] – After more than four decades of dedicated service and unwavering commitment to the promotional products industry, Bill and Sharon Miller, founders of BCG, announce their plans for retirement on June 28th, 2024. Their retirement marks the end of an era characterized by passion, perseverance, and unparalleled dedication.

In 1981, Bill Miller embarked on a transformative journey that reshaped not only his own future but also that of his future family. Guided by a bold vision and fueled by his unique blend of salesmanship and determination, he founded BCG, affectionately known by Bill as "small, but mighty." Under his guidance, BCG thrived, emerging as a formidable force in the industry. One of Bill's greatest salesmanship triumphs was convincing Sharon, a local nurse, to join him on the adventure of a lifetime. Together, they raised four children while nurturing and growing BCG into the success it is today. Their partnership extended beyond business, as they became true road warriors, tirelessly promoting BCG's capabilities at industry events across the USA and Canada. –And, partners through it all, they did every show together.

Reflecting on their journey, Sharon and Bill express gratitude for the lifelong friendships forged within the industry; Customers, fellow suppliers, and since joining HPG in 2018, fellow team members alike. As Bill eloquently states, "Sharon and I are humbled by the friendships and memories the promotional products industry has given us. As we embark on this new adventure called retirement, we carry with us the lessons learned, the bonds forged, and the legacy of BCG. Cheers to the past and the exciting future ahead!" – Bill Miller – COO, BCG

As I step further into a leadership role, I am honored to continue their vision and carry forward the BCG legacy they worked so tirelessly to create." - Zack Miller – GM, BCG
