The list features a familiar Syndeo name.

Kate Rhea, one of Syndeo’s HR business partners, has been selected to the 2019 class for the Wichita Business Journal’s HR Professionals Awards.

“We couldn’t be prouder of her inclusion in this class,” says Bill Maness, Syndeo’s president. “She is an outstanding representation of the efforts by all of us to be a part of a best in class organization.”

Honorees were announced online Thursday.

The awards recognize individuals for their career achievements and efforts to advance the profession of human resources.

Rhea, who has been with Syndeo since 2014, is one of 25 honorees for the 2019 HR Professionals Awards. She is a Wichita native and graduate of the University of Kansas.

The WBJ will present its HR Professionals Awards during a luncheon Feb. 12 at the Hyatt Regency Wichita. This is the seventh year of that awards program.

A special publication will detail more about Rhea and the other 2019 honorees.

Rhea’s selection is the latest in a growing number of honors for Syndeo and its employees, including Best Places to Work, 40 Under 40, Women in Business and the CFO Awards.
