local model

We’re proud to offer our clients scalability with some of the most experienced consultants in Atlanta. Our team consists of full-time and part-time professionals. We focus on working locally, in lieu of the rigorous travel schedule kept by many consultants, to allow our team time for family, growth, and work-life balance.

Our teams develop an intimate, integrated team approach with our clients. And since we’re all local, we are right around the corner, ready to attack challenges by our clients’ sides.


Butch Benford

Managing Director

Butch formed Stratfield Consulting in 2011 with the belief that companies are seeking a more reliable consulting firm to deliver an ever-expanding list of projects. After 20+ years in both large and boutique consulting firms, he had a hunch that Atlanta was full of experienced professionals who were like him: love and thrive in consulting roles, but weary of the full-time travel. So Butch set out to build a team of leaders who share a passion for delivering projects with excellence, and pair them with local organizations with complex challenges and resource needs.

An Atlanta native, Butch enjoys traveling with his family, watching soccer, and relaxing at the family cabin on the lake.
