In November 2008, with the support of family and friends, Mike Brezina launched Vantage Performance Group, LLC.
With a mission to “unleash the full potential of organizations, leaders and teams,” Vantage began collaborating with our clients and prospects to create tailored solutions to maximize their effectiveness and results. The “coaching and consulting” work took off fast, but soon the company realized that there was a significant need in small to mid-size companies. The more companies they talked with, it became evident that small and mid-size companies typically cannot provide the type of HR support that larger companies can – but the same needs still exist.
In 2010, the name officially changed to Vantage HRO, LLC.
Dr. Katie Waller began working for Vantage in February 2013 as an HR Consultant. As Mike’s career evolved he chose to sell the company to Katie and take on a new career as the Senior Vice President of HR at Hilcorp Energy Company. Katie was excited to take on this new opportunity and became the President of Vantage in January 2014. Prior to working at Vantage, Katie was the HR Director at Compaq, and spent 7 years at Texas Children’s Hospital working in Leadership Development, Organizational Development, and Compensation. Katie has a Bachelor’s Degree from Texas A&M in Interdisciplinary Studies, a Master’s Degree from the University of Houston Clear Lake in Instructional Technology, and a Doctorate in Learning, Design, and Technology from the University of Houston.
With Katie’s passion for helping others and the enthusiastic spirit of her HR team they continue to help companies achieve success on a daily basis.
Today, Vantage serves clients in the Houston, Dallas, Austin, San Antonio, and surrounding areas by providing HR expertise at all levels. The company works with all types of industries including oil and gas, healthcare, accounting, homebuilders, and manufacturing companies.
In January 2016 Vantage HRO became incorporated and today is called Vantage HRO, Inc.
Vantage HRO is an active member of the Clear Lake Chamber of Commerce and a member of the League City and Friendswood Business Network International (BNI) Chapters.
