Our Team


About our Founder

Marty Petty, Founder and CEO of The MPetty Group, brings significant senior-level, management experience to her work. With 35-plus years of C-suite experience, she understands the challenges CEOs face. Collectively, her work encompasses all aspects of building high-performing and sustainable talent assets in organizations. In fact, this work has defined Marty’s career.

At USF Health in 2013, Marty was introduced to Dr. C. Stephen Byrum and The Hartman Value Profile.™ She realized this powerful tool would have been extremely valuable during her C-Suite tenures. With Steve as her mentor, Marty earned her Master Certification to administer the instrument. Today, she is one of fewer than 100 people worldwide qualified to do so.
