Mike Coffey is an entrepreneur, human resources professional, licensed private investigator, and HR consultant. He’s also a little nutty about quality and customer service. In 1999, he created Imperative to bring high quality, high tech, and high touch to the employment background screening market. Today, Imperative serves hundreds of businesses across the US and, through its PFC Caregiver Screening brand, many more private estates, family offices, and personal service agencies. Mike has been recognized as an Entrepreneur of Excellence and has twice been named HR Professional of the Year. Additionally, Imperative is included in the prestigious Best Places to Work lists for both Fort Worth and Texas and was named the Texas state chamber of commerce’s small business of the year. In 2021, Mike serves as an officer of both the Texas Association of Business, the state chamber of commerce, and Texas SHRM, the state HR association. He also mentors emerging entrepreneurs through EO Fort Worth. Mike maintains his certification as a Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR) through the HR Certification Institute. He is also a SHRM Senior Certified Professional (SHRM-SCP). Mike lives in Fort Worth with his very patient wife and they are one high-school graduation or juvenile court sentencing away from being empty nesters. He practices yoga and maintains a keto diet, about both of which he will gladly tell you way more than you want to know.
