The CEO of a software company bought an oceanfront home in Gulf Stream for $12.6 million.

Records show Joseph A. and Melissa L. Walsh bought the house at 1315 North Ocean Boulevard from The Sharon Ann Millar Revocable Trust Agreement, with Sharon Ann Millar and Lawrence A. Sala acting as trustees.

Joe Walsh is CEO and president of Dallas-based Thryv. The company provides software and support to over 40,000 businesses, according to its website. Walsh was formerly president and CEO of Yellowbook from 1993 to 2011, according to his Linkedin page. He is also chairman of the Joe and Missy Walsh Family Foundation.

Missy Walsh is a founder of Capital Blackbook, an event design and management firm based in the Washington, D.C. area, according to her Linkedin page.

Sharon “Sherry” Millar is the widow of the late James F. Millar, who was president and CEO of Dublin, Ohio-based Cardinal Health. He also served on the board of Wendy’s International, First Industrial Realty, and Columbus Industries, according to his obituary. He died in 2020.

Records show the Millars purchased the house in 2006 for $7.6 million. Sherry Millar transferred ownership to a trust in her name in March.

Palm Beach County property records show the home has five bedrooms and six-and-a-half bathrooms. The 6,498-square-foot house was built in 1997 on a 0.7-acre, oceanfront lot.

Gulf Stream has had some big sales this year. In June, the CEO of Yum! Brands bought a waterfront home for $8.5 million; and in April, an insurance head and attorney couple sold their oceanfront home for $11 million.

Last year, the former chairman of McGraw Hill sold a waterfront home in Gulf Stream for $8 million.
