    Kalvin Campbell

    Principal

    Having worked in a number of sales roles previously, Kalvin seamlessly transitioned into the world of recruitment in 2014. Here he specialised in providing IT and Digital professionals into the NHS for 10 years before deciding to say goodbye to the public sector and hello to the world of data centers. Kalvin joins us as a Principal and is now working hard to source the best data center talent across the world.
     
    Kalvin grew up in South-East London, and like the rest of us he is a big football fan. Despite living within walking distance of Selhurst Park, his allegiances somehow lie with Liverpool! Aside from arguing about how he has some long-lost scouse blood in him, Kalvin is often trying to get his 2 daughters to follow in his footsteps and become Liverpool fans too. He says ‘it’s a work in progress’ as he hasn’t managed to convince them yet. Ironically, this is the same thing he says when questioned on why he hasn’t been to Anfield yet!
