Brief Company History


The company was established in 1994 when Warren had just qualified in accounting. He moved to Richards Bay to start working in a cellular shop getting the odd client here and there and offering excellent service by working through the night.

As his clients demands grew he moved to offices in the Promenade centre, Richards Bay. He developed the skills of his staff and began to  grow very quickly. In 2011 he opened his second office in St Lucia and walked the street for business. One of his staff who had just completed his articles wanted partnership so he helped him by opening an office in Mtuba and gave him shares and the office in St Lucia was closed.

Due to escalating costs and the state of the building in the CBD he purchased a house office in Richards Bay in 2016. He also sold the practice in Mtuba to be able to focus on the main practice in Meerensee, which is now growing from strength to strength.

In 2021 Warren and his wife Lori, who handles marketing and branding, moved to Knysna in the Western Cape where they continue to work as WJ Mitchell & Associates.
