Rockford Corp. Announces Retirement of Howard Miller (Crimestopper)

Rockford Corp. has announced the retirement of industry veteran Howard Miller. Miller and his wife, Sharon, founded Crimestopper in 1980, and Miller joined Rockford as a consultant after Rockford acquired Crimestopper in 2014. Miller will remain with Rockford until June 30.

“Howard has built hundreds of business relationships and developed deep friendships throughout his long tenure in the industry,” said Rockford Corporation President and CEO Bill Jackson. “He is known as a field intensive guy and a person who has a work ethic that is second to none. He is one of those iconic people in the industry that basically everyone knows and everyone likes because of his personality and professionalism.”

For 35 years in the North American market, Crimestopper, Inc. has been an industry leader in 12 Volt aftermarket electronics and has become a one-stop-shop for total vehicle security and safety needs. Over the past decade, the company has been recognized for offering the widest selection of vehicle security and remote start systems in the marketplace. It has also expanded its product line to include GPS tracking systems and a wide variety of vehicle safety products such as cameras, monitors, wireless video systems, collision avoidance and parking sensor systems, DVR systems, and tire pressure monitoring systems.

“It’s been quite a ride,” said Miller. “Sharon and I started Crimestopper with humble beginnings with quite literally nothing, and built it up to one of the most respected brands in the industry over the past four decades. There are too many people to recognize for helping us along the way, but we do thank each and every one of them. And now, seeing what Rockford is putting into the business allows me to retire knowing Crimestopper is in good hands.”

Jackson concluded, “We are sad to see Howard leave the organization. He has been a great partner and has built a fabulous reputation in the industry. I am sure Howard is looking forward to improving his golf handicap and relaxing. We wish nothing but the best for the Millers and look forward to carrying on their legacy by continuing to build the Crimestopper brand.”
