Graham Hill is the driving force behind the St. Louis Motorcars sales team. Born in 1962 in England, Graham moved to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, in 1985. His first job in the American car business was with The Steering Wheel, a Maserati dealer on Sunrise Boulevard. In 1987, he answered a job advertisement and joined Bentley and Rolls-Royce Motorcars in Fort Lauderdale, becoming the youngest Rolls-Royce and Bentley salesperson in the U.S. Graham rapidly became one of the top sales producers in the U.S. market, and by 1997 he was officially the top Bentley salesperson in the United States. After 20 years in Florida, Graham moved to St. Louis to open Bentley St. Louis with his partner Jim Mills in December 2002.

Hill’s favorite vehicle is the Rolls-Royce, possibly the most prestigious brand in the world and often the choice of royalty. Lately, he enjoys the thrill of drophead driving in the Dawn, Rolls-Royce’s newest bespoke convertible. In the Dawn, he’s not a spectator of the world, but at one with it. Hill lives, works and plays in Chesterfield, the city he loves. He enjoys working out at the Chesterfield Athletic Club, dining at Annie Gunn’s and walking the trails and Monarch Levee in Chesterfield Valley.

Giving back to the community is a priority of his. He takes a special interest in The Variety Club and Kids in the Middle by donating his time, making charitable contributions and being an advocate. While maintaining impeccable business citizenship, Hill strives to make St. Louis Motorcars the premier luxury and supercar dealership in the Midwest.

In the 15 years before starting St. Louis Motorcars with his business partner, Graham Hill, in 2001, Jim Mills ran a $200 million corporation and held positions of increasing responsibility with a $100 million-plus corporation. When Mills opened St. Louis Motorcars in 2002, he learned to put his ego in check. He continues to live his dream of being associated with the finest brand names of motorcars in the world and the people that own and drive them. As a car enthusiast himself, he enjoys talking with customers about their shared passions. From engineering details to color combinations to zero to 60 mph times, it has been nonstop enjoyment for Mills since the dealership opened.

In his spare time, Mills has a passion for automobiles, outdoor activities, his family and dogs. He loves getting his hands dirty! He supports several charities and religious organizations in town and enjoys everything Chesterfield and the surrounding St. Louis community has to offer.

When asked about his favorite car model, he couldn’t name fewer than a dozen, the mark of a true automotive enthusiast! He has an appreciation for everything, from classic muscle cars to sophisticated touring and exotic supercars. Currently, Mills is enamored with the all-new 2017 Bentley Bentayga, the world’s most powerful SUV. Bentayga is the most luxurious, hand-built, all-terrain vehicle on Earth—a car where technology, speed and power have been brought together to offer an extraordinary driving experience.
