What We Do

How We Started

How We Started

John H. Sykes founded the company in 1977 with just three employees in Charlotte, NC. While it initially started with a focus on engineering services, John Sykes saw the increasing need for excellent customer service. Now SYKES spans the globe with thousands of employees, but at the heart of it – we’re still a family business where people are valued, supported and appreciated at every level.

In 2004, his son Chuck Sykes was appointed CEO, with the same commitment to helping people, one caring interaction at a time.
