The board of the United Methodist Publishing House (UMPH) has elected Reverend Brian K. Milford as the incoming president and CEO. The decision was made Tuesday during a video conference meeting.

"I am honored by this opportunity to serve The United Methodist Church and wider community," Milford said.
Milford previously served as chief content officer and book editor of The UMC at the United Methodist Publishing House. He is an elder in the Iowa Annual Conference of UMC and was previously a district superintendent and dean of the appointive cabinet. He was a delegate to the last two General Conferences and was elected as a delegate to the upcoming 2016 General Conference. Milford served churches as the senior or lead pastor and participated and chaired numerous jurisdictional and annual conference groups. He received his Master of Divinity degree from the Divinity School at Duke University and his B.A./B.S. in Business Administration and Sociology from Iowa State University.
Justice Cornelia A. Clark, board vice-chair, celebrated Milford's election.
"Brian Milford is known across The United Methodist Church as a gifted and astute servant leader who has earned the respect and trust of many," Clark said.
Milford will continue in his current assignment with UMPH and assist President Alexander through the end of the quadrennium.
"In our careful consideration of 10 finalists with great track records in publishing, leveraging new technologies and leading organizations through periods of intense creative change, Brian Milford emerged as far and away the person most ready to provide missional vision, innovative business practices, sound stewardship and trusted leadership for the challenges ahead," Frazier said.
Ultimately, the vote was unanimous in inviting Milford to lead the publishing house.
