In the year 2000, Levy was set up with the intention to listen to, understand and deliver professionals to clients across the Netherlands and the UK, ranging from Dutch investment banks to global energy providers. Navigating our way through the dotcom crash, we managed to establish ourselves as a reliable partner for sourcing expertise across all areas of IT landscapes.
2003 Saw the arrival of our Dutch branch in Amsterdam to build upon our successful beginnings and to further develop our presence within the Dutch marketplace. Our UK business diversified into new industries such as Travel and Aviation and our internal teams began to grow. The global financial crisis that followed several years later and its economic impact was an extremely challenging period in our history but we relied on strong relationships with clients and our professionals to weather the storm and we even helped some clients with restructuring and cost reductions.
In 2014, there was a change of CEO and Matt Murphy took over the reigns from the founder, Lawrence Levy. There followed a subsequent period of growth, further team building and with the help of James Duke, Levy entered into new markets and industries whilst further expanding our teams in the Netherlands and the UK offices.
The arrival of Covid last year has been without doubt challenging for everyone and we have adapted by providing as much flexibility as possible for our internal employees, professionals and clients. We have weathered crisis’ in the past but this time we recognize that diversity and sustainability of our services must be achieved to continue adding value to our clients and professionals alike.
2020 Also marked the arrival of Frank Grootenboer as a Director to lead our Dutch operations and together with the management team, we have embarked upon a strategy of rebranding and further professionalization of our services and internal organization.
