Clive Miller joins Support Act as CEO

Clive Miller, who has a strong background in both the music and philanthropy, has been announced as the new CEO of the Australian music industry’s benevolent association Support Act Ltd.

He takes over on May 21, replacing Joanna Cave who is returning to the UK to continue her creative endeavours.

“I started my career in the music industry, working as a broadcaster, promoter and manager so I can strongly identify with the critical need to provide crisis support to artists and music workers,” Miller said.

“I look forward to reconnecting with many old friends and colleagues and to building on the great work that has been done over the past years by Jo Cave, the board and staff of Support Act, and its many donors and supporters.”

Miller started out in the early ‘80s as producer and presenter at 2XX Canberra and triple j, and managed The Go-Betweens and The Ups and Downs.

For 12 months in the late ’90s, he was development manager at the Yothu Yindi Foundation, working with the Indigenous community on literacy and health.

For the last nine years, Millers spent his time as CEO of Optometry Giving Sight for nine years, based in Sydney and Denver, and finishing up last December.

Miller also worked in various capacities in non-profit organisations as the Fred Hollows Foundation, Austcare and AIDS Trust of Australia.

Support Act Ltd’s next major event is the Music In The House luncheon on Wednesday May 16 at the Ivy Ballroom in Sydney.

Archie Roach will be presented with Support Act’s Excellence in the Community Award in recognition of his powerful contribution to the voice of First Nations people and all Australians.

Roach will perform at the event, as will Paul Kelly with Maddie and Memphis Kelly, Tiddas and Emma Donovan.
