Good luck with your label, although I can't help thinking that if you're already asking basic questions like 'who can I get to do my mastering' that perhaps you should have joined some time ago to get up to speed before launching
I'd start by looking through my music collection to find good examples of the type of music I want to produce on the label, to build up a set of guidelines that you can mention to the mastering house I end up using.
However, as a label, and assuming you already have access to recording facilities, I'd personally want to find a mastering house that is already familiar with the type of genre you're most likely to be publishing, and is also within travelling range, so I could sit in to hear what the mastering engineer is doing. Otherwise you're buying blind.

There's any number of people to recommend. Are you looking for something specific?
More to the point, and, without wishing to be rude, are you happy with paying for the service? Mastering has been hit very hard recently with people believing that prices are 'too high' for a service which can make or break the sound of an album. If you want a pro job doing, then there are pros out there who can do a great job - but it comes at a price.

It is the label's job to find the artists and find the best way to sell the music to the audience. Most of the label owners that I know are big music fans rather than musicians - they know their market because they're part of that market.
