“An acquaintance of mine, on LinkedIn, was just saying that she wishes she could find a good recruiter… not someone who just wanted a quick buck. I thought of you, and your group, as I know you do business the right way.”

Robert G., Experienced EBP Assurance Practice Leader   

“I can validate for MGM Advisory Services/Mellie Mathis. She runs a professional recruiting service and is not a cookie cutter operation. The MGM group is a pleasure to work with while looking for employment as well.”

Jon T., Vice President/Corporate Controller

“You really hit the jackpot with the senior accountant you recruited for me. She is well respected and moving up quickly through the organization. It is fun to see her confidence grow and make a meaningful contribution to our organization. She is definitely a valuable asset to our organization, and I see her continuing to gain more responsibility.”

Katie M., Corporate Controller

“Mellie, you have always been a master at evaluating talent and personality. I was desperate for someone who could cut through and deliver. I knew you could do that for me! I’m so proud of you and your group. In today’s environment, it’s people like you that deliver in a desperate situation.”

Laura Beagle, Corporate Controller

“I am very thankful that Bob put me in touch with you.  You are much, much more than a recruiter.  Thank you for the very encouraging email.  I look forward to a continued professional relationship for the long future.”

Matt Studinski, former VP of Finance and Treasury for Colemont


“The MGM Advisory Services team was professional, friendly and kept me informed at all times.  I couldn’t have asked for a better experience! Thank you!  They have been equally terrific and wonderful to work with during this process.    I am truly grateful for this employment opportunity.

The boutique style service they offer is unmatched in the industry. MGM Advisory Services will definitely receive my highest recommendation in the future.”

Sharon Setzler, Executive Assistant


“Over the past year, we have used Mellie’s services to obtain several quality candidates and successful hires for several positions for our organization and an affiliate organization.  One of the key attributes that Mellie brings to the table is that she “gets it”.  She understands our business, our culture and what type of candidates will make a perfect fit for our organization.  Our hires through Mellie have been exactly that, perfect fits for our organization. The individuals have been able to not just fill their respective outlined roles and expectations, but exceed them.  We look forward to our continued relationship with Mellie.”

Jill W. Lampert, CFO/CAO

NGP Energy Capital Management


“MGM Advisory Services did a terrific job in helping us identify and hire a new Controller for our firm, accomplishing the task in an accelerated time frame.  We particularly appreciated the job Mellie did pre-qualifying candidates and including a brief summary of her thoughts (both positive and negative) on each candidate she put forward for us to interview.  I have never seen a recruiter do such a thorough job of diligence on potential candidates.  We found Mellie to be attentive and communicative, keeping us informed throughout the recruitment process.  We are extremely pleased with our newest addition to the firm and would not hesitate to use Mellie again for any staffing needs.”

Jim Wilson, Partner & CFO

“Mellie provided a very effective solution to Probity Electronics that was cost efficient for us both in recruiting needs and eventually by leading our HR department.  We found ourselves without an HR professional, and she seamlessly stepped into that role.  Mellie handled the HR Manager role in a professional manner and with great skill.  I’ve found my association with Mellie to be very enjoyable and profitable.  We have continued our professional relationship since 2004, and I look forward to having an opportunity to work with her again in the near future!”

Bret Burdette, CFO

“Mellie Goolsby Mathis worked for me as a contract Recruiter at ACS, A Xerox Company, after we went through a major realignment within our recruiting organization. She is a truly diverse player in the staffing and talent acquisition arena, who will jump in on any project to make sure it is completed on time, regardless of the obstacles she runs up against. She is very knowledgeable and always looks for ways to improve processes and procedures. In addition, she is a great relationship builder, both client facing with management and with internal staffing teams. She led several key searches, one search alone that produced savings of over $75K.  She has great attention to detail as she provided a weekly status report to the chairman on a key search. Anyone who is fortunate enough to work with, or work for, Mellie will be better for the experience, personally and professionally, and find it extremely rewarding.”

Erin Niemeyer, Director of Talent Acquisition

ACS, A Xerox Company


“During thirty plus years of working in a wide variety of industries, I have had the opportunity to experience, firsthand, the difficulty of locating top performers in the area of Human Resource Management. Mellie is one, on a very short list, of HR professionals that I have worked with that helped establish the benchmark I use regarding HR professionals. In addition to her ability to identify improvement opportunities within HR functions, Mellie’s personnel skills proved over and over her ability to see beyond a given circumstance or emotion to the root of the issue. I personally experienced Mellie efficiently and effectively managing a variety of issues that would have been too challenging for most. This gift enables Mellie to earn the trust and respect of those in her circle in short order. Mellie receives my highest of recommendations, and I look forward to my next opportunity to work with her.”

Steven Branch, President

Configurable Management, LLC


“I have known Mellie professionally, and personally, for almost 20 years. We worked at Arthur Andersen and Grant Thornton together. She now heads up an advisory services firm that, among other things, provides recruiting services in the Accounting & Finance space. Mellie’s reputation is everything to her. She works hard to understand what her clients need and only presents candidates that she thinks are a great fit. Her fees are very competitive, and, perhaps best of all, she will not repeatedly call you!”

James H. Forson, SeniorVice President & Chief Accounting Officer

La Quinta Management, L.L.C.


“Mellie and her team have done a terrific job in assisting me with both recruiting for my department and the implementation of our virtual card payment program.

On the recruiting side, Mellie’s company has provided me with the most tailored approach I have seen to date; taking my needs and applying those as benchmarks for the candidates’ pre-screening process.  Mellie and her team truly took their time in understanding what I needed and wanted from candidates.  I have been very pleased with both the full-time and contract-basis employees placed through Mellie.  Mellie and her team are my number one choice for accounting and finance recruiting services.

Mellie and her company also assisted me in connecting with COMDATA for my company’s virtual card payment program.  Through this relationship, we were able to drive higher rebates than our existing banking relationship or comparable offerings. Within 3 months from implementation of the program, we were already achieving strong savings to the bottom-line.”

What can I say – simply the best service possible is what you should expect with Mellie and her team. Mellie and her team are the best at taking most of the burden away from my company as it comes to recruiting, and only presenting candidates that will meet my baseline demands.”

Gus de Avillez, Chief Financial Office

“We must keep in touch! I wish you nothing but the very best! I never dreamed that this would be how things turned out. I am very happy with my schedule and salary. You have brought much joy to me, and it is great to do business with someone with your integrity.”
Joan Mayo, Controller

Bill is the same way. Everyone here is so helpful and nice. I cannot express to you and Rebecca how much I appreciate you vetting me out and sending me here. I feel as if I am home.”
