Matt Miles


MHS Class of 1983

Matt Miles was raised in Montrose and attended Montrose schools, graduating from Montrose High School in 1983.  He is the founder and sole owner of Leadership Circle, LLC, which owns, manages and develops properties.  Miles is responsible for significantly expanding housing and retail opportunities in the Montrose area.

From early on, Miles learned the meaning of putting in a hard day’s work.  Shortly after he graduated, Miles started a roofing business that he grew with determination, working from dawn to dusk at construction sites in Montrose and Telluride.  Eventually, the company had 75 employees.  Realizing a need for affordable housing, Miles raised enough capital to build his first housing development in Montrose in the early 1990s.  Since then, he has devoted his energies fulltime to the development of both residential and commercial properties, including Bear Creek, Waterfall Canyon, Cimarron Creek, Oxbow Crossing and River Landing.

In 2010, Miles was honored with the Economic Development Partnership Award, in recognition of his investments in the community and specifically for his role in the creation of retail opportunities at the south end of Montrose.  Miles says he is optimistic about the future of his hometown, and he is taking an active role in making it a better place to live.

Miles’ wife, Marci, was also raised in Montrose.  The couple has been married for 29 years and has 2 children, Nicholas and Stephanie.
