Summus Group is incredibly excited to congratulate Liz Sykes on being an honoree for the Charlotte Business Journal’s Women in Business award. Liz is a dedicated, ambitious leader Summus Group is proud to call their own. During her tenure at Summus Group, Liz has quickly risen in ranks due to her creativity, strategic thinking, growth-oriented mindset, and desire to develop those around her.
