The Mazon Story

Who we are.

Since 1976.

Our History.

Helma’s journey began far from the world of finance. Raised in Charleston, West Virginia, she witnessed the resilience and innovation of her parents, miners, who instilled in her the values of hard work and pursuing one’s dreams. Equipped with a business degree from Marshall University and an unwavering belief in her own potential, Helma defied the naysayers who discouraged her entrepreneurial spirit. Starting from her home, she embraced the challenges of the factoring industry, driven by a passion to help businesses flourish.

Her unlikely entry into the field came through a connection with her Sunday school teacher, a business consultant who provided factoring services. Recognizing her potential, he entrusted her with factoring for some of his smaller clients. This experience ignited a spark in Helma, who found fulfillment in the combination of financial expertise, entrepreneurial spirit, and the ability to empower others. “This was for me,” she later remarked, “I had never done something I enjoyed, that I was good at and that I made money – all at the same time.”

As the business grew, Helma’s children, Lisa and Shelley, became integral parts of its fabric. From licking envelopes as children to learning the intricacies of the trade alongside their mother, they were immersed in the world of Mazon Associates. This firsthand experience fostered a deep understanding of the challenges faced by businesses and a genuine desire to empower them.

Lisa and Shelley’s individual strengths and personalities perfectly complemented each other. Lisa, with her focus on sales and client service, brought a warmth and empathy that resonated with clients. Shelley, with her operational expertise, ensured the smooth running of the company, providing a solid foundation for growth.

Their journey within Mazon Associates was marked by dedication and unwavering commitment. Lisa joined in 1993, starting as an account manager and eventually taking over sales. Shelley, after working at a bank, joined in 1996 and gradually assumed more operational responsibilities. Together, they formed a formidable team, their individual talents weaving a tapestry of success for the company.

In 2018, a significant milestone was reached as Lisa and Shelley officially took majority ownership of Mazon Associates. This marked the passing of the torch from the first generation to the second, ensuring the continuation of the family legacy while embracing new ideas and strategies.

Throughout their journey, faith has played a crucial role for both Lisa and Shelley. They believe that every business deserves a chance to prosper, and they approach their work with a genuine desire to help others succeed. This core belief fuels their passion and guides their decisions, making Mazon Associates more than just a financial service provider; it’s a beacon of hope and opportunity for countless businesses.

Today, Lisa and Shelley lead Mazon Associates with the same values that have guided the company since its inception: excellence, friendliness, and integrity. They continue to honor their parents’ legacy by providing exceptional factoring services while fostering a family-oriented culture within the company.

The story of Mazon Associates is a testament to the power of hard work, family, and a deep-rooted belief in the potential of every dream. It’s a story that continues to unfold, with Lisa and Shelley at the helm, writing new chapters of success while staying true to the values that have made Mazon Associates a trusted partner for generations.
