Derek Baker

Vice President, Growth and Innovation


With years of banking experience and a passion for strategic marketing, Derek jumped right into account work at Mills. He thrives in a day-to-day work environment that is never the same and always moving 100 mph. His experience, sense of humor, and love of a fast-paced work environment make him a great match for Mills and our clients. Selfishly, we’re all hoping to reap the rewards of his love for cooking too!


Education: B.S. in Business Administration, Grand View University

My personal motto is: Take humor seriously.

My superpower is: Drinking caffeine right up to bedtime and then immediately falling asleep.

Use three words to describe the Mills team: My second family.
