The results are in from the 2024 Board of Directors election for the Viticus Group (formerly WVC) and congratulations are in order for a Purdue Veterinary Medicine alumnus, Dr. Adam Miller (PU DVM 2007), of Cincinnati, Ohio.  Dr. Miller was one of three candidates for two open seats on the board. The election results were announced in conjunction with the WVC Annual Conference February 18-21 in Las Vegas.

Dr. Miller is a small business owner, veterinarian, and entrepreneur who earned his BS degree in business management at what is now named the Mitchell E. Daniels, Jr. School of Business at Purdue, before enrolling in the College of Veterinary Medicine and earning his Purdue DVM degree in 2007.  His experience in the veterinary medical profession includes being the founder and president of Distinct Veterinary Management, LLC, overseeing daily operations of veterinary hospitals in Houston, Texas and Cincinnati, Ohio.

Dr. Miller leads two diverse veterinary teams and, as a proud father of three, is credited with creating a family-oriented culture that rewards both personal and professional growth. As an advocate for the future of the veterinary industry, he serves as a member of the Veterinary Angel Network for Entrepreneurs, providing direction, connection, and support to early-stage animal health businesses. Dr. Miller strongly believes that a proactive approach is necessary for the industry to succeed, and has developed many innovative ideas to facilitate this transformation. He also is a member of the Veterinary Management Group (VMG), which reflects his dedication to the future of veterinary ownership. Dr. Miller is excited about the opportunity as a member of the Viticus Group Board of Directors to work alongside other committed professionals towards the betterment of the industry.

Dr. Miller becomes the second Purdue Veterinary Medicine alumnus to serve on the current board of directors.  He joins Dr. Miguel Ortiz (PU DVM 2009), of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania as a board member.  Dr. Ortiz is the chief lifesaving officer at Animal Friends, a small non-profit animal shelter just outside of Pittsburgh. Since graduating from Purdue University in 2009, Dr. Ortiz has practiced small animal medicine in large corporate practices, rural family-owned clinics, and at various animal shelters. Recently, he completed a Master’s degree in International Development and achieved Diplomate status at the American College of Veterinary Preventive Medicine.

Voting in the Board of Directors election was open to veterinarians, credentialed veterinary technicians, and physicians who attended a Viticus Group event between Feb. 22, 2023 and Feb. 20, 2024.  The election occurs on an annual basis with a voting process that addresses staggered terms. The Viticus Group Board of Directors is comprised of 16 members who come from veterinary and human healthcare backgrounds. 

“I am honored to welcome and work for these esteemed board members,” said Andrea Davis, Viticus Group chief executive officer. “The wealth of experience, diverse perspectives and commitment to excellence will navigate the ever-changing landscape of our industry and ensure we are delivering the highest quality of innovative education to veterinary and human healthcare worldwide.”
