Mills Automotive Group

Marisa Mills
Group General Manager

Since 1922, when my grandfather started the first of our companies, our family has stood for honesty, integrity, trust, doing what's right, courtesy, and customer service, with mutual long-term relationships with both our customers and Team Members. These qualities have carried over from everything my grandfather has done, and into everything my father and I do with all of our businesses. We intend to continue all of our efforts and business endeavors, now and in the future, in this same manner to ensure that we have a thriving Team and are exceeding our guest's and customer's expectations!

It has been my dream ever since I was a little girl to work with my father on an everyday basis in a leadership role with all of our businesses. I have been actively working with our companies since I was 15 years old, although I was in 'training' with my Dad for many years prior to that, as I would go along with him on many of his Mills Fleet Farm store checks. I attended Hamline University from 1993-1995 and Northwood University from 1995-1997, upon which time I graduated Summa Cum Laude. After much commitment, energy, focus, and determination, on behalf of my amazing Team and myself, I am now proud to say, that I am the owner and President of our Mills Automotive Group, and am business partners with my Dad! Lifelong dreams do come true! And, there is no one better that I'd want to be business partners with or have learned all I have learned from, than my wonderful Dad!

Through my passion of physical and emotional holistic healthcare and development, I have become a Certified Hendricks Conscious Living and Loving Coach. Please find my profile on the link listed below:


I am truly blessed to be surrounded by some of the most amazing, talented, and dedicated individuals in the world that are on my team at the Mills Automotive Group! I am grateful for each of their individual and team contributions, hard work, personal responsibility, and continued growth that I am part of experiencing and witnessing on a daily basis! I truly love my Team, and I feel extremely grateful for them each and every day!

On my journey thus far, my personal and professional growth and development have been immensely impacted by these individuals and/or companies in various ways. And, from the bottom of my heart, I am grateful!
