Tech Industry Veteran Joins Fast-Growing Consultancy, Levvel, as COO
CHARLOTTE, North Carolina—March 29, 2018: Levvel, one of the fastest growing global strategy and technology consultancies, is pleased to announce the addition of Jim Devlin (previously of AMS Group Inc), a tech industry veteran who joins as Chief Operating Officer (COO).
Going into its fourth year, Levvel is approaching $40 million in annual revenue and is expecting to hire 75 employees in the next 9-12 months.
“Jim has been a long-time mentor and coach, predating the founding of Levvel, and it is truly great to formally bring him onto the team,” said CEO and co-founder of Levvel, John Espey (former executive at Amentra, acquired by prominent technology company Red Hat in 2008).
Jim’s responsibilities will include overseeing global operations, account management, M&A strategy and implementation, and business development. Chris Hart, Levvel CTO and co-founder, spoke about Devlin’s strategic fit within the company.
“Jim will lead the charge as we evolve from a largely North American focused, early-stage company to a truly global firm. With the growing complexity of our organization, multinational project delivery, and global client relationships, Jim is a perfect fit to drive this as we continue to scale.”
Devlin watched Levvel evolve from its infancy and spoke to his excitement about joining the Charlotte-based tech company.
“I’ve been watching Levvel expand through the years and am excited to join this team as it continues to grow and evolve. I’ve been a supporter of Levvel since its inception as a small IT consulting company to what is now a globally recognized digital transformation services company.
Chris’ and John’s domain expertise and complementary skills have consistently impressed me. Having worked in the IT services space for over 40 years, I look forward to bringing to bear my industry experience. My ultimate goal is to ensure that Levvel has the necessary processes in place to continue its rapid growth whilst preserving the culture and entrepreneurial spirit of the business.”
