MWC is based in Lubbock, Texas. We serve clients in the South Plains and West Texas regions, and all across the state. With New Mexico and Oklahoma bordering Texas, we serve clients in those states as well.
We combine the experience of a large firm with the personal attention that only a small firm can provide. Our clients come back to us year after year because they know they are in good hands.
We work to develop long-term relationships. Whether your needs are simple or complex, we can help.
Mason Warner & Company was founded in 1962 when Jimmie Mason left a local accounting firm and started his own accounting practice. In 1963 he moved to offices at 1708 15th street. The firm started by Jimmie continued to expand at this location. In 1964, J. Reid Warner joined our firm as a staff member. Reid became a partner in 1968. Jimmie Mason retired in 2000 and Reid Warner retired in January of 2007.
MWC continued to grow and expand from primarily tax preparation to a full range of accounting services. In 1973 our firm outgrew its location on 15th street and moved to the newly constructed Tower of the Plains Building at 50th and University. This was to be the location of our firm for the next eighteen years. We occupied a small portion of the fourth floor when we first moved to the PNB building. Within a few years the firm had grown to the point where we occupied the entire fourth floor.
During the period of time our firm spent in the Tower of the Plains there were many events that increased the expertise and stability of our firm. In 1991 MWC purchased the Building at our current location, 5202 Indiana Avenue.
From 1978 through 1981 our firm employed five new staff accountants, Mark Dickson, Greg Freeman, Pat Harris, Gary Lane, and Greg Moore. Pat Harris retired in May of 2004. Greg Freeman retired in October of 2019 and Gary Lane retired in December of 2021. Both Mark Dickson and Greg Moore are still active in ownership. Barbara Gilliam was promoted to the position of shareholder on January 1, 2004, and Tait Crow was added as a shareholder on January 1, 2012. Jeremy Stapp and Will Sanders were added as shareholders in January of 2022. Together, they represent the next generation of ownership that will be leading MWC into the future.
