A Rancher. A Businessman. Not a Politician!
Markwayne Mullin is an eastern Oklahoma native, successful businessman, rancher, family man and youth leader in his church. The youngest of seven children, he was raised in the small Adair County community of Westville.
Shortly after Markwayne graduated from Stilwell High School, his dad fell ill and the family’s small plumbing company encountered financial troubles. Markwayne was only 20 years old but he and his wife, Christie, took over with only six employees. They had never run a business, but his dad had taught him the value of hard work and discipline.
Markwayne and Christie not only stabilized Mullin Plumbing, but grew it into one of the largest service companies in the tri-state area. Today, it is only one of several successful companies they own, including Mullin Farms, Mullin Properties and Mullin Services.
Mullin is proud to have turned a family trade into a thriving business. Mullin Plumbing is most recognized due to its advertising and the more than 100 employees known for their hallmark red vans visible servicing Oklahomans across the state. For his part, Markwayne personally promotes the company through television and radio advertising. One of his favorite jobs is to produce and host the radio call-in talk show “House Talk.”
Markwayne was a high school athlete and went to college on a wrestling scholarship before returning home to run the family business. He’s also a rodeo and a martial arts enthusiast and is an avid hunter. He’s been married to Christie, his high school sweetheart, for 14 years and they have three children, ages 7, 6 and 3.
