BTG was named to Inc. Magazine’s prestigious list of the 5000 fastest-growing companies in America three years in a row. The company was also named to the Forbes list of “100 Most Promising Companies,” one of only four female-led organizations. Fortune magazine named Miller one of its ten “Most Promising Women Entrepreneurs,” and EY recognized her as one of twelve “Entrepreneurial Winning Women” in North America.
Jody co-authored “The Rise of the Supertemp,” a Big Idea feature for the Harvard Business Review that observers cite as the definitive analysis of the alternative professional services trend. Jody’s thought leadership on the evolving talent marketplace has also been featured in outlets such as The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Fortune, Fast Company, Forbes, Business Insider, The Economist, The Financial Times, CNN, Stanford University, Fox Business, NPR, and Bloomberg.
