Charlotte, NC – Dec. 14, 2020 – Charlotte-based leadership advisory firm, Summit Leadership Partners, ranks #5 this year on Consulting Magazine’s Fastest Growing Firms list, a prestigious industry award highlighting the up-and-coming firms in the US that are outpacing the consulting industry.

This will be the sixth year in a row Consulting Magazine has ranked the profession’s movers and shakers in terms of revenue growth. The list is calculated by examining each firm’s growth rate, gathering revenue figures on December 31, 2016 and again on December 31, 2019.

“We’re honored to be recognized for this award alongside our industry peers. Our success can be attributed to our entire team being grounded in collaboration, courage, agility, and exception talent,” said Dan Hawkins, Founder & CEO, Summit Leadership Partners. “This recognition confirms our collective sacrifices, commitment and teamwork and demonstrates further proof that we have a special formula that not only works for our employees, but for our clients as well.”

Since Summit Leadership Partners was first established in 2014, the company has evolved into the nation’s primary leadership advisory firm that services a niche market of high-growth companies that need to scale their leadership, management teams and the broader organization. Summit is comprised of a team of operating executives that have left successful companies or have led organizations themselves. With a strong focus on leadership impact, organization performance and business outcomes, Summit has a unique blend of exceptional behavioral science qualifications and real-world business experience. The company’s success is credited to its client-centric focus and providing a fit-for-purpose approach to solving leadership and organization performance challenges.

“Summit’s business model is very diversified and so are the markets we serve,” said Hawkins. “This year brought many changes, so we decided to commit to remaining flexible and focused our efforts on product development and targeted markets that are doing well in this volatile economic environment. As a result, we’ve seen continued growth and expect a record quarter in Q1 2021.”

In 2020, Summit Leadership Partners was also honored with two other prominent growth awards, ranking #10 on Charlotte Business Journal’s “Fast 50” Fastest Growing Private Companies and #684 on the Inc 5000 “Fastest-Growing Private Companies in America.” To see the full list of this year’s winners of the Consulting Magazine’s Fastest Growing Firms, visit .
