About Us

Becki Drahota
It all started with a fresh Drake University grad living in Denver circa ... nevermind.

Becki Drahota’s first role was as an account manager for a large marketing firm, and her primary client just happened to be a financial institution. After a number of years, she decided to relocate back to Iowa to start a family, and when she attempted to transition that client to another manager, they respectfully declined – and suggested she start a firm in Iowa and that they’d be her first client. So she did. That was in 1975, and Mills Marketing has since grown from a one-woman show, to more than 20 team members, two locations, and clients in every time zone. 

Mills’ strong reputation and steady growth over the past decades is the result of a smart, bold, and dedicated team of creatives and strategists that works tirelessly to elevate the communication and marketing initiatives for their clients in the financial industry. 

We’re family-first. Client-focused. Results-driven. 

And we’re a lot of fun!
