Cox Automotive presented its annual Barbara Cox Woman of the Year Award to Gail Miller, owner and chairman of Larry H. Miller Group of Companies.

This honor is awarded to women who demonstrate business leadership and community advocacy, as well as a commitment to advancing the automotive industry. Cox Automotive President Sandy Schwartz presented the award during the Northwood University Dealer Education Award annual breakfast on Jan. 26.

The award is named after the late Barbara Cox, a Cox Automotive owner and the mother of chairman Jim Kennedy.

Gail Miller and her late husband, Larry, started their business with a single Toyota dealership in 1979. The Larry H. Miller Group of Companies has grown to include more than 60 car dealerships throughout the West, the Utah Jazz, the Salt Lake City Stars, the Salt Lake Bees, theater complexes, and a variety of other automotive, financial, and real estate companies. Today, the privately owned Larry H. Miller Group of Companies employs more than 10,000 people.

The Millers created a strong legacy of giving back to the communities in which they do business. Miller presides over the Larry H. Miller Education Foundation and the Larry H. & Gail Miller Family Foundation, which support a wide range of charitable, educational and humanitarian causes.
