Town of Ocean City announces new Special Events Superintendent

frank millerAfter conducting a national search, which resulted in dozens of qualified candidates, the Town of Ocean City is pleased to welcome Frank Miller to the position of Special Events Superintendent for the Town of Ocean City.  The position recently became vacant when 14-year Town of Ocean City employee, John “Sully” Sullivan, retired.

As Special Events Superintendent, Miller will manage countless events in the resort town, including Sundaes in the Park, Concerts on the Beach, Arts Alive, Springfest, Sunfest and Winterfest. While his formal responsibilities include planning, coordinating and executing the Town of Ocean City’s various special events, he is also responsible for managing hundreds of private events within Ocean City.

Miller has spent the last 18 years of his professional career in event production and management, including the annual OC Air Show.  His portfolio includes public, corporate, and private events and conferences with notable undertakings such as the Year 2000 New Year’s Eve event at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Mitsubishi Digital Electronics’ Annual Product Line Show introducing DLP technology and the 2007 World Space Expo at Kennedy Space Center celebrating 50 years of space exploration. He also has a creative edge to his efforts, in both conceptual planning and visual arts, nurtured by the College for Creative Studies in Detroit, Michigan.

“We are very excited to have Frank join our exceptional Special Events team,” said Susan Petito, Assistant Director of Recreation and Parks.  “I believe his expertise will compliment that of our veteran staff’s, and he will be able to bring a fresh perspective to our award-winning and nationally ranked events.”

Miller, a native of Elizabethtown, PA, and a graduate of Elizabethtown College, brings with him to the Eastern Shore his wife of 19 years, Jennifer and two children, Andrew and Matthew. When Miller is not working with the Ocean City Special Events Division team or attending his sons’ lacrosse games, he enjoys visiting local car shows and camping with his family.
