Charlotte, NC – Aug. 15, 2023 – Charlotte-based leadership and organization performance advisory firm and top consulting firm for Private Equity and middle market companies, Summit Leadership Partners, was recognized today as one of the Inc. 5000 fastest-growing companies in America in 2023. This is the fourth consecutive year the leadership advisory firm has made the list, which features the most successful private companies with a proven track record of growth.

“Our mission is to unlock leadership potential through human capital-driven value creation to boost companies’ performance. Showcasing our firm’s growth and scalability success is just as crucial as demonstrating our expertise and real-world business acumen to our clients, “said Dan Hawkins, Founder & CEO, Summit Leadership Partners. “Being acknowledged for our growth over four consecutive years amidst a challenging economic climate is a true honor and a testament to our proven practices and our exceptional team.”

Since last year’s Inc. 5000 recognition, Summit Leadership Partners has grown rapidly by offering enhancements and team expansions in several key areas of its business. In May, Summit announced its first Board of Advisors as the company continues to deliver expert counsel and insights that help investors, boards, and CEOs drive business performance and create value through human capital.

“In today’s ever-changing business environment, the need to solve real-world leadership challenges is becoming more apparent. We are committed to increasing our knowledge base and expertise while investing in our team every year to meet this demand. This ensures that we can continue to be trusted partners to our clients and provide them with the support they need to succeed.”

“It brings us great joy to be consistently acknowledged in the rankings of Inc. Magazine, especially during a challenging four-year macroenvironment. I am proud to see our exceptional team of skilled employees come together, showcasing their unwavering dedication to our mission. This achievement results from the collective effort made by our team, clients, and our recent partnership with the Board of Advisors. I am excited to witness our progress as we embark on this journey together.” Hawkins concludes.

To qualify for the Inc. 5000 list, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2019. Companies must be U.S.-based, privately held, for-profit, and independent–not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies–as of December 31, 2022. (Since then, some on the list may have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2019 is $100,000; the minimum for 2022 is $2 million.
