Financial Partners Group Hires Former HALO CEO as Chief Innovation Officer

Financial Partners Group added Garold Miller as chief innovation officer. Miller holds several hundred patents and trademarks and is a serial entrepreneur with a background in innovation, design and manufacturing.

At Financial Partners Group, Miller will play a role in bringing continued innovation to the team and enhancing capabilities and efficiencies for key markets, customers, partners and internal teams.

“We’re thrilled to have Garold joining us as we continue to expand strategic focus areas of the organization,” Jeff LaLima, CEO of Financial Partners Group, said. “Continuous innovation from an efficiency, process and customer experience standpoint is a priority for our partners and customers. Providing innovative solutions is both an opportunity and a necessity in the current market landscape and an area in which Garold has proven to help companies scale and build.”

Prior to joining Financial Partners Group, Miller served as the CEO of HALO, a consumer electronics company that focuses on designing and manufacturing products at the intersection of fashion and function. Under his leadership, HALO grew in the portable power space to serve more than 25 million active customers in more than eight countries. In addition, for more than 15 years, Miller has been at the forefront of product development for QVC.

“I’m looking forward to being a part of this team,” Miller said. “FPG is one of the best groups of people I’ve come across in my career, and the opportunity ahead for the company is unprecedented in terms of how we serve new markets, enhance existing partnerships, and help customers grow their businesses through innovative cutting-edge tech and experiences. The company is visionary in areas like platform expansion, advanced automation and AI to support everyone’s needs.”

“It’s another huge opportunity for us to build on what we have and enhance our leadership in the equipment finance industry through tech and innovation,” Josh Mabee, COO of Financial Partners Group, said. “Bringing Garold into the fold at this point in time fits perfectly with everything we’ve done over the past few years and where we’re headed over the next five.”
