Gary McDonald


After graduating from Texas A&M Commerce in 1974 with a Bachelor’s degree in Business and Finance, Gary passed the CPA exam, earned his license, and began practicing.  He started with a firm but eventually organized his own practice and began serving small businesses and individuals north of Dallas.  After decades operating as a sole practitioner, Gary combined his practice with PW Associates at the end of 2020.

Gary is a practicing CPA and small business advisor.  He is also an owner of small businesses.  Gary has served on various civic boards, including as Treasurer for Greater Plano Salvation Army and as a member of the Planning and Zoning Commission in Van Alstyne, Texas.

Gary was born and raised in Texas.  He and his wife are the parents of two sons, and grandparents to six grandchildren.
