"For over 40 years, we have worked with clients in Lubbock and west Texas. I graduated from Texas Tech in 1970 and have never really left. I love the area, the people and doing business here. Expanding our Lubbock office was the logical next step in MHBT's growth strategy. The area has strong economic growth, people with a "can do" attitude and a highly skilled workforce."
