Levin Group have today announced the launch of their fourth new recruitment brand, Storm5.

In keeping with their current growth trajectory, the rapidly expanding recruitment leader have launched Storm5 to service the RetailTech and eCommerce sector. The pandemic drastically shifted consumer behaviour towards retail, with online shopping and customer experience taking priority to ensure brands had a customer base to come back to when physical retail reopened. As well as pushing boundaries with online experience, immersive instore experience and convenience is vital for modern-day society, and it takes innovation and a data driven strategy to stay ahead of the competition.

Storm5’s mission is to build the most powerful and efficient RetailTech and E-Commerce talent ecosystem globally, contributing to creating outstanding B2B/B2C online customer experiences by connecting the very best talent with fast growing scale-ups. The founding team have already got to work building a network of highly specialized C-suite and senior talent across Data & Analytics, Engineering & DevOps, Product Management and Sales & Marketing fields.

Leading the brand launch is Olivier Kerckhove, previously of SThree: “We’re launching Storm5 when the RetailTech sector is going through a huge shift, experiencing record funding in the last 12 months due to the pandemic’s impact on consumer’s buying patterns. I’m so excited to be founding and launching Storm5 as its undoubtedly the most exciting project in the staffing industry today.”

James Brown, CEO of Levin Group, said: “We’re thrilled to have Olivier Kerckhove leading our newest brand. He has a wealth of experience launching recruitment and consultancy brands across Europe so is going to be a huge asset to our leadership team. Olivier will be connecting rare talent with fast growth scale-ups looking to provide outstanding online B2B/B2C online customer experiences.”

The launch comes off the back of a massive hiring surge across the whole of Levin Group. In April, the two-year old business onboarded 125 new consultants in one day bringing their total headcount to 180 across three international offices. Storm5 and the wider Levin Group, which includes award-winning FinTech recruiter Storm2, specialize in connecting the best Tech talent with businesses in Europe, Asia and North America. They are the leading provider for compensation and best practice in diversity, equity & inclusion, hiring and retention in their markets.
