Carla Walker-Miller

Founder and CEO, Walker-Miller Energy Services

Carla Walker-Miller is the founder and CEO of Walker-Miller Energy Services, a 20-year-old values-driven company that changes lives through energy, by reducing the utility burdens on families, creating jobs, and decreasing harmful greenhouse gases. Walker-Miller started the business in 2000 after an 18-year corporate career. She navigated the company through the recession by successfully pivoting from electrical equipment sales to the energy efficiency industry.

In 2018, Walker-Miller made three transformational decisions by instituting a $15 an hour minimum wage, resolved to only recruit team members who embrace the company’s culture of kind excellence, and adopted second chance policies that give people with criminal records fair opportunities for employment.

A longtime Detroit booster, Walker-Miller champions diversity in all forms, and aggressively recruits and trains a workforce that reflects the rich diversity of the communities her company serves. She believes the representation of all voices emphasize our humanity, drives sustainable policies, and creates equitable opportunities for all.
