Buck is Back

Storm2 appoint new Chairman

Phaidon International founder Adam Buck, who exited as Chairman as part of the Quilvest PE acquisition in 2018, has joined Storm2 as Chairman. Victoria Maloney, previously Global Operations Director for SThree PLC, also joins the Board as NED. The appointments form an Executive Committee alongside Puffin Point’s Edward Ogden and CEO James Brown.

Award-winning FinTech recruiter Storm2 launched in August 2019, scaling to 50 people in London and Singapore throughout 2020. Storm2 forms the blueprint for a multi-brand global group, which will launch new businesses into eCommerce, HealthTech and EnergyTech throughout 2021, opening offices across the USA and mainland Europe.

Buck commented “I believe this could be the next significant global industry story. Puffin Point have demonstrated great commitment, with a successful track record in Spencer Ogden’s sale to MML. After personally founding Phaidon through to PE acquisition, I believe there is a unique blend of industry and investor experience to create something special. Victoria’s expertise in scaling global teams will be invaluable.”

Brown, Storm2’s founder, commented “I am thrilled to secure Adam and Victoria. We are looking to hire 200 people in 2021 as we scale the new brands and global locations, so their experience will be invaluable. I am a true believer in opportunity creation, and I am delighted in the platform we have to execute the vision.”
