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.
Olivier Kerckhove, formerly of SThree, is leading Storm5’s brand launch. According to Kerckhove, “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.” He believes that one of the most significant challenges for a RetailTech company is people; the ability of a company to attract and retain the best talent available is the most important factor in its success.
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 specialised C-suite and senior talent across Data & Analytics, Engineering & DevOps, Product Management and Sales & Marketing fields.
