About Bert

Bert E. Miller

Bert’s expertise in search and recruitment dates back to 1995, when he co-founded Protis Global, an award-winning search and recruitment firm specializing in the CPG sector focusing on food, food tech, beverage, cannabis, pet, and automation verticals. Protis Global has built some of the most iconic brands in the CPG space — including Red Bull North America, Diageo, and Hostess — and has helped launch several start-up beverage companies. The company has consistently ranked in the top 10 of MRINetwork offices over the last 15 years, generating $120M+ including over $95M in permanent placement fees.

In 2019, Bert acquired MRINetwork to lead the organization and its global offices through digital transition and into a new era of talent access. Since then, he has effectively scaled MRI’s unique network model while supporting existing members with proven tools, training, digital media products, and technology, which led to a successful exit. In 2022, MRINetwork was acquired by HireQuest, Inc., a national franchisor of direct dispatch, executive search, and commercial staffing services.
Bert is an active speaker, mentor, advisor, and investor. He hosts his own award-winning podcast series entitled, Beyond the Bottom Line with Bert Miller.
