The Enterprise Center
Chattanooga, TN
Geoff Millener serves as the Chief Operating Officer for The Enterprise Center in Chattanooga, Tennessee. He works with a dynamic team and community partners leveraging the city’s unique gigabit infrastructure to develop, test, deploy and scale solutions for the 21st century, with a focus on digital inclusion, economic mobility and Smart City innovation. In the past year, he helped to launch HCS EdConnect, powered by EPB, a $15.3M, 10-year commitment to provide no-cost broadband access to every student with economic need in Hamilton County Schools, with more than 15,000 students and their families already connected.

An honors graduate of Amherst College, he was selected as one of “50 People Who Made the Internet a Better Place” by Mozilla in 2017 and to Chattanooga’s 20 Under 40 list in 2020; most recently, he was named the 2021 Charles Benton Digital Equity Champion: Emerging Leader by the National Digital Inclusion Alliance.

Geoff volunteers locally as chair of Thrive’s Regional Broadband Alliance, on Signal Centers’ Assistive Technology Community Board, as a trustee of the UNFoundation, as co-chair of community grants for St. Paul’s Episcopal Church and on the board of the JA Henry Community YMCA. Together with his wife, Martha, three rescued dogs and a cat, a gradual descent into a plaid-clad, Chaco-wearing, running-cycling-hiking-rowing Chattanooga stereotype otherwise keeps him occupied. (At least until the arrival of their first child, in June. Parenting advice appreciated.)
