Meet Our Professionals


Thad Miller
Founder & President

Thad Miller is an industry leader with twenty years experience. His circles of influence span across the United States and include manufacturers, suppliers and beyond. Over the years he saw firsthand the difficulty veterinarians had when it came time to buy and sell their hospitals or find associates for the practice. He wondered…Could there be a better way? What if the process could be professional, streamlined and efficient? Utilizing technology, yet never losing the human touch?” These questions led him to found DVMmatch.

Making a Connection:  As I showed up for a blind date (with my future wife Courtney), I knocked on her door and was immediately greeted by a 100 pound lab. Having been raised without any dogs as a child, I wasn’t sure how to react. That night while at dinner, Courtney proclaimed Max was the best thing in the world, and over time, I couldn’t have agreed more. (even after he ate several pairs of my shoes)  Since then, we added an English Bulldog, Bacchus and our current Bernese Mountain Dog, Zeus.  I couldn’t imagine walking through the front door ever again without a greeting like the one Max gave me years ago!
