Arthur D. Little (ADL) today announced that Jim Miller has been appointed as a Partner. Jim will play a leading role in developing ADL’s Travel & Transportation (T&T) practice in the US, where the company aims to expand its presence and build on its global reputation as a leading consultancy in the mobility space, from aviation to public transport.
For over 30 years, Jim has delivered economic and financial analyses for airports, airlines, ports, and rail. He has particular expertise in the aviation sector, where he has served as an advisor on over 50 airport privatizations and over 150 forecast/financial valuation analysis projects for some of the world’s largest airports. Jim’s areas of focus include: air service development, domestic deficiency analyses, forecasting, OPEX analysis, commercial planning, feasibility and cargo studies, land use and master planning, terminal area plans, airport/airline use and leasing, strategic planning, and bilateral advice.
Before joining ADL, Jim had the dual role of developing the Public-Private-Partnership (PPP) transportation business at Royal HaskoningDHV, an international engineering and project management consultancy, while leading the PPP transaction business at InterVISTAS Consulting, which focuses on the aviation, transportation and tourism sectors.
Jim had previously served as President of InterVISTAS, following a merger with Innova Aviation, the boutique consulting firm he founded in 2005. Jim has also worked at GKMG Consulting and PA Consulting, where he was appointed as a Senior Partner responsible for its Global Transportation practice. He started his career as Manager of Marketing and International Affairs at Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority.
“The U.S. is poised to experience a wholesale shift across transportation sectors, and ADL is excited to welcome Jim as a leader who can apply his deep expertise to our clients’ situations. His wealth of experience in American and global transportation, and aviation in particular, will significantly enhance our capabilities and perspective,” said Craig Wylie, Managing Partner at ADL. “ADL’s growth in the U.S. demonstrates the value of building teams around those who invite collaboration and apply lessons from across industries and regions. Jim is an excellent fit to bring that spirit to our Travel & Transportation practice.”
Jim Miller, Partner at ADL, adds: “What really attracted me to ADL is the space and opportunity it gives its partners to be genuinely entrepreneurial in their dealings with clients, as this is how I’ve always worked most successfully in the past. That approach is critical today, as airports and airlines consider how to restructure their business to reflect new market conditions, while the industry itself changes to address pressing sustainability issues. The challenges unfolding this decade will require both insight and practical advice from experts such as ADL, and I’m proud to have become part of their team.”
Jim earned his Juris Doctor from the University of Tulsa College of Law in 1983, and a Master’s Degree in Mathematical Economics from West Virginia University in 1979.
