Cheryl Miller makes history as first woman CEO of publicly traded auto retailer
Auto retailer AutoNation promoted CFO Cheryl Miller to CEO and president, making AutoNaion the largest Florida company with a woman CEO. She’s also the first woman CEO of a publicly traded auto retailer.
Miller got the job just a few months after longtime CEO Mike Jackson moved up to executive chairman and the Fort Lauderdale company hired financial services executive Carl Liebert, an outsider to the auto industry, as CEO. AutoNation now says Liebert wasn’t a good fit, and the two agreed to part.
