Summit Talent Group LLC Announcement

Monday, July 12, 2021

Seth Lee, President of Summit Talent Group LLC, has announced his retirement from the company, effective Friday, July 16, 2021.

Seth founded Summit Talent Group in 2013, and successfully built Summit Talent Group from a basement ‘start-up’ to a national consulting firm, later selling the company to the Innovation Institute/Future Sense Holdings in July of 2016, where he remained the managing leader. During his 20+ year career in executive search, Seth successfully led and completed approximately 600 executive, leadership and interim engagements in partnership with some of the most recognized hospital systems in the United States.  While the decision to retire and leave his colleagues and clients was difficult, Seth expressed a desire to spend quality time with his family, preparing for the college transition of his son and to take advantage of the remaining outdoor summer and autumn seasons.
