ComplyAuto reached an “extraordinary milestone” on Monday, announcing that former National Automobile Dealers Association regulatory expert Brad Miller is joining the company as chief regulatory and compliance officer and head of legal.

Miller spent more than 16 years at NADA in a variety of roles, including most recently as the chief regulatory counsel, where he represented dealer interests before numerous federal agencies and educated dealers on regulations.

ComplyAuto highlighted that Miller is a recognized industry expert on a wide variety of federal regulatory issues and considered one of the foremost authorities on data privacy and cybersecurity regulations.

“Welcoming Brad to the ComplyAuto team is an extraordinary milestone for our company and the automotive industry as a whole,” ComplyAuto co-founder and CEO Chris Cleveland said in a news release. “Brad is, without question, one of the utmost authorities on dealership regulatory compliance, and his visionary insights throughout the years have shaped how dealers, manufacturers, and automotive vendors navigate the complex maze of state and federal regulations. His unparalleled expertise and deep understanding of the regulatory landscape have made him the de facto resource for automotive compliance guidance across the nation.

“Brad’s contributions have always helped dealers and their partners stay compliant and will now empower us at ComplyAuto to deliver cutting-edge solutions to our automotive partners,” Cleveland continued. “Having had the privilege of collaborating with Brad for over a decade, I am absolutely thrilled to officially call him a member of our team. His presence and unparalleled legal expertise will solidify our position as the leader in dealership regulatory compliance.”

Miller has been a featured speaker at the NADA Show for several years and he has a history as a subject matter expert presenting at conferences, symposia, webinars, forums, and workshops. He worked in private practice for eight years at two prestigious law firms before joining NADA.

“To do this work properly, you not only need to understand the intricacies of the law, you must be able to apply that knowledge to the dealer world,” Miller said. “Chris and his team at ComplyAuto have become the undisputed leaders in helping dealers meet a vast array of compliance challenges by expertly combining extensive dealership experience and world-class technology, with an unrivaled knowledge of the law. They’ve done a fantastic job for dealers.

And more importantly it’s clear to me that their passion is to always do the right thing to help protect dealers and dealership employees. I share that passion, and that’s why I’m excited to be joining the ComplyAuto team. I look forward to helping dealers meet today’s challenges — and be prepared for tomorrow’s,” Miller went on to say.
