It’s Miller Time!

Mar 13, 2012 No Comments by

Rumor has it that SAB Miller, the company behind Miller, Coors Light and Corona, plans to move its Latin American headquarters out of Bogotá and into Miami, according to several people familiar with the deal.

While details haven’t been made public, Miller is expected to rent an entire floor at 1450 Brickell, which is about 77 percent occupied without Miller.

The move involves a relatively small office — between 50 and 70 people will work at the SAB Miller office — but is seen as a coup for the city’s standing as a corporate hub for the Americas.

In October, the South Florida Business Journal reported the Beacon Council was pursuing $182,000 in state and county relocation incentives for Miller, deducing correctly that the company in the confidential aid application was SAB Miller.

That application says an unnamed global beverage firm considering a Miami move will spend about $1.5 million renovating its offices and employ 70 people making an average salary of $88,000. Of the $182,000 in subsidies applied for, about $145,000 would come from the state. Miller would start with about 50 employees, and add another 20 within two years.
