SALT LAKE CITY (May 16, 2014) – The Utah Jazz episode of CBS’s two-time Emmy Award-winning reality series “Undercover Boss” with Greg Miller, chief executive officer of the Larry H. Miller Group of Companies, will be rebroadcast nationally, Friday, May 23, at 8/7 central (locally at 7 p.m. on KUTV2). The show focused on the Jazz game-night operations at EnergySolutions Arena.

Viewership of the original broadcast on Feb. 28, 2014 reached 8.54 million viewers as “Undercover Boss” won its ratings timeslot across all key measures.

Miller, under the alias of ‘Mark Scott,’ participated in four different jobs, working as a member of the Dunk Team, member of the Interactive Team cheering with the fans in the upper bowl of the arena, concessions employee and as part of the floor operations unit. The Utah Jazz was the first NBA franchise to be featured on “Undercover Boss.”

“For me, the most memorable moments, and the ones where I learned the most, came from seeing firsthand some of the challenges our employees are faced with, and then revealing who I was and telling them what my family wanted to do for them,” Miller said. “Their reactions and expressions of surprise and gratitude have had a profound impact on me and the company.”

After the “Undercover Boss” experience, the Larry H. Miller Group of Companies introduced an Employee Emergency Aid and Resource Committee to assist employees who find themselves faced with an emergency or crisis requiring limited financial assistance. 

“Overall, I have gained an even greater appreciation for the wonderful people who work for this organization. I give full credit for our success to the nearly 10,000 employees who do such a great job for us, day in and day out,” Miller said. “It was very gratifying for me to see that my dad’s vision for the Jazz and the company is alive and well through our employees.”

Prior to assuming his role as chief executive officer in 2008, Greg Miller, the eldest son of the late Larry H. Miller, took on increasing levels of responsibility and filled a series of leadership positions during his 34 years of employment within the LHM Group. Roles included managing several multi-million dollar construction projects, serving as general manager to some of the company’s most successful auto dealerships, and overseeing the operation of the $100 million Miller Motorsports Park, one of the premiere race tracks in North America.

The Larry H. Miller Group of Companies began with a single automotive dealership, Larry H. Miller Toyota, in Murray, Utah on May 1, 1979. Since that time, the Larry H. Miller Group of Companies has grown to more than 80 businesses and properties operating in 46 states. These businesses fall into six primary areas: automotive, finance, insurance, real estate, sports and retail. Because of a strong commitment to the community, Larry H. Miller successfully added a collection of non-automotive businesses to the organization, including the Utah Jazz; MiLB Triple-A Salt Lake Bees; EnergySolutions Arena; Megaplex movie theatres throughout the state of Utah; Fanzz sports retail apparel stores; Prestige Financial; KJZZ-TV; The Zone Sports Network and more.
