Our history.

Celebrating Over 100 years of Service

The firm was founded in 1923 by Waco’s first CPA, Frank L. Wilcox. Mr. Wilcox was married to the daughter of former Governor of Texas and Baylor University President, Pat Neff. As he grew in his career, Mr. Wilcox went on to be elected the Mayor of Waco, President of TSCPA and Vice President of the AICPA. As the firm gained traction, he added Pat Pattillo (also a former Mayor of Waco and Past President of the TSCPA!), Rodney Brown and Walter Hill as partners. Together, they created a basis for our firm today, branding their legacy within the Waco community. After Mr. Wilcox’s death, the firm’s name officially became Pattillo, Brown & Hill, L.L.P. In 1997, our Hillsboro office was acquired, with our firm in Albuquerque joining shortly after in 1998, followed by our Temple office in 2001. Our expansion into these communities is just the beginning of what is on our horizon!

Our growth is solely because of our unyielding commitment to client service. This has resulted in the diversification and evolution of our client base, positioning PB&H between the incredibly large national accounting firms and the smaller local firms. This progress has allowed us to develop our resources and personnel to be in the position to resolve even the most complex issue, but enabled us to maintain our commitment to give each of our clients the personalized service they deserve.
