Mark Mitford has been exceptional to work with. When we partnered with HR Catalyst Consulting, we were a 200+ employee organization without a human resources department. Mark worked directly with our executive team to devise an HR strategy and road map to build an internal HR function from the ground up. Throughout implementation, Mark has been an invaluable resource to leadership and has helped us hire two full time employees within our HR department to handle all of our HR needs. Although we are now fully self-sufficient, Mark continues to be a valuable resource to our management team as complex HR related issues arise. I would highly recommend Mark to any organization going through a similar transition and would be more than happy to provide a reference for any company that is considering working with HR Catalyst Consulting.

Mark Mitford of HR Catalyst was recommended to me by several CEO’s in my Vistage group who spoke very highly of him. I was able to replace a fulltime HR Director with Mark’s immediate capacity to assess our organization’s needs and identify a prioritized plan to address our needs. He immediately made our staff feel comfortable during a time of transition and was instrumental in helping us identify new Core Values, as well as conducting Leadership Training with our team. I cannot recommend him highly enough!

Mark Mitford with HR Catalyst was not only instrumental in helping us setup our HR department, but also provided our leadership team with valuable change management insight. The weekly change management seminars were engaging, on point and beneficial to our leadership teams. Mark was not only professional, but he listened to our teams and provided valuable feedback.

I highly recommend HR Catalyst for any human resources needs. More specifically, David Garza has provided excellent guidance and service with his vast knowledge and expertise in HR. David has been instrumental in providing me support through my transition to the Executive Director position.

My organization, Women’s Foodservice Forum recently engaged Mark Mitford of HR Catalyst. His broad background in HR was very helpful in us making decisions around how to compensate top talent in our organization.

Timothy Johnson

VP Human Resources & Organizational Effectiveness, Women’s Food Service Forum

I am the HR manager of BT Furnishings, a Dallas/Fort Worth based furniture and home decor store with four locations. Our company has grown significantly over the years, and I worked with HR Catalyst when we needed guidance on designing a strategy and defining the human resources department structure. HR Catalyst consultant, David Garza, demonstrated strong customer relations skills and was highly creative. David was able to help us brainstorm and design a structure that made sense for our company. I appreciate that David really took our company culture, ideas and suggestions into consideration when creating systems and brainstorming ideas. If you are looking for HR guidance from someone with valuable HR experience and who will value your suggestions and ideas as well, I recommend HR Catalyst.

Eliseo Campos

HR Manager, BT Furnishings

We consulted HR Catalyst regarding the new COVID-19 regulations and appreciated getting timely external HR perspectives from highly experienced advisors. This was instrumental in aiding our leadership to better understand the implications of the new regulations, and clarified legal and operational obligations in taking care of our employees, customers, and business. They provided additional context and several valuable external resources as the pandemic unfolded. We expect to tap their expertise further as the year progresses.
