VENICE — A Zoom party took place recently with Caldwell Trust Company celebrating the 20 years of work put in so far of Jan Miller.

Jan Miller is now a senior executive vice president and trust officer.

The social distanced gathering included Caldwell Trust Company CEO/President R. G. “Kelly” Caldwell Jr. and the company’s board of directors.

“From the first day Jan joined us, she brought a strong guiding hand clothed in a velvet glove,” Kelly Caldwell said in a news release. “Her soft-spoken approach belies the depth of her foresight, leadership skills, and endearing personality. Not surprisingly, her trajectory has been consistently upward.”

Along with her work, she is also a volunteer for Mote Marine Laboratory and Tidewell Hospice. Miller’s husband has worked with Mote Marine since 1979; Miller spent two terms on Tidewell’s Board of Trustees — and is the chair of its parent company, Stratrum Health Systems.

Miller recalls starting her job at Caldwell Trust Company in January 2001. In a news release, she said she knew it was beyond a new position.

“I was coming home,” she said said in the news release.

The Zoom gathering showcased “love and appreciation for Jan,” the news release said. A large display board was signed by the staff and the company presented her with a trophy.

“I’m humbled by the many kind words and tributes,” Jan said. “I’ve just been doing my job and helping others whenever I could. It’s gratifying to see the positive results, and it means so much to know that my efforts are appreciated.”

Miller can be contacted by email at or by calling 941-926-9336.
