Dillon Gage’s History
After a long career in the brokerage industry, Stephen W. Miller founded the first Dillon Gage Company in 1976. Through the years, he added additional companies and services that followed his initial mission to provide professional and service-oriented leadership that makes Dillon Gage the leader that it is today. These companies include:
- Dillon Gage Securities Inc. – A full service NASD member firm that specializes in financial planning.
- Dillon Gage Inc. of Dallas (dba Dillon Gage Metals) – One of the largest international precious metals dealers in the United States.
- Dillon Gage Incorporated – A company dealing in the futures markets.
These are truly niche companies with unique products and a service orientation second to none. Mr. Miller has a breadth of experience from company management to investment banking services, leading NASDAQ small cap market companies through both first and second tier financing, to taking several organizations through the successful completion of their initial public offering. Mr. Miller and Dillon Gage Incorporated have been members of the Chicago Board of Trade and the New York Mercantile Exchange.
Mr. Miller also believes in community service and to that end, he is a co-founder and President of HELPS International (HELPS). HELPS is a non-profit organization that was founded in 1983 and created to provide relief and development for the country of Guatemala. With over 8,000 volunteers, HELPS has brought U.S. personnel and partnered with governments and individuals within the country.
Now an integrated organization providing multiple services, HELPS has been given the Rodolfo Robles Award which is the highest civilian award given by the country of Guatemala in the area of medicine and the Monja Blanca Award, their equivalent of the US Congressional Medal of Honor to civilians.
