Maher Maso - Mayor, City of Frisco

Maher Maso started calling Frisco “home” in 1992.  It didn’t take him long to become active in his community.  His first experience as an “elected representative” came the next year, when he was voted President of his homeowners’ association.  With that, his passion for public service was born, and in 2000, Maso was first elected to Frisco City Council.  Maso was reelected to the Frisco City Council in 2002 and 2004. During that time, he served as mayor pro tem from 2003 to 2007.  Term limits required Maso to break from serving on council in 2007; however, his recess from council didn’t last long.  Maso was elected Mayor of the City of Frisco in 2008.
 
Mayor Maso brings more than 30 years of experience as an entrepreneur in land development, retail, and technology services to the Office of Mayor.  He is Vice President of Maso, Incorporated, and CMTEX Corporation.
 
Mayor Maso’s education credits include a bachelor’s degree from the University of Phoenix and an executive M.B.A. from the University of Texas at Arlington.  He has completed more than 350 hours of leadership training from the Texas Municipal League (TML) and has been recognized by TML for completing more than five years of consecutive continuing education.  Mayor Maso has also completed courses in emergency management hosted by FEMA and the Department of Homeland Security.
 
Mayor Maso’s enthusiasm for education, public service, and volunteerism extends beyond his role on the Frisco City Council.  Currently, Mayor Maso is Vice Chairman of the Collin College Education Foundation, a member of the Technology Advisory Committee for the Frisco Independent School District.  Mayor Maso is also a member of the Heritage Association of Frisco, the American Planning Association, and the Frisco Chamber of Commerce.
 
Mayor Maso was also a charter member and Vice President of the Arts of Collin County Commission, serving from 2002 to 2008.  His other, past appointments to civic boards include the Frisco Association of the Arts, Leadership Frisco, Relay for Life, and the 2002-2003 Collin County Bond Committee.  In his spare time, this father of three has also coached basketball and softball.
