Carlisle Auctions Team Bios
Bill Miller, Jr.
Co-Owner & Founder | 717.243.7855 ext. 190
Bill Miller, Jr., is the co-owner and co-founder of Carlisle Events, a title he has held since 1974 when he and the late Chip Miller (no relation) hosted Post War 74. The Carlisle Events concept and Post War event came to fruition after Chip and Bill were asked to leave a local show because the vehicle they were showing was not deemed to be a classic car. By giving a home to all types of vehicles, specifically those manufactured post-war, the Millers took a singular show, now known as Fall Carlisle, and turned their passion into a business that is responsible for nearly $100 million in local economic impact.
