Founder Bill Mills’ Business Philosophy

"In the beginning, there is a plan and the plan is good. It addresses itself to the objectives of the client. It defines goals, establishes a budget and a timetable."

"What we say we will do, we will do."

"We will be prudent with our clients’ money, but not at the expense of inadequate or mediocre work."

"Public Relations and Marketing are business tools, not an art exhibit. Their sole function is to sell a product, service or idea. This can almost always be accomplished with style and good taste."

"Creative solutions will be used to solve problems, create attention and get as much mileage as possible for the client’s dollar."

"We will be fair and honest in our dealings with clients and suppliers. We will disagree when we think they are wrong. But we will be open-minded, and we will treat everyone with the same courtesy we expect."
