Our journey so far
In 2004, our founder John Jackson sold his first internet services business to the Ambient Group Plc subsidiary Touch NW, and promptly joined them as Business Development Manager. After leaving a few years later, John realised that the technology he’d built to run that business was a product in its own right, and thus FLG was created in 2007 as an independent CRM platform focused on automated workflows.
After spending 13 years growing the business, in September 2020 John left his role as Managing Director and the business was acquired by ClearCourse. Our Onboarding, Support, Product Development and Marketing teams are split between FLG's headquarters in Padiham (just outside Burnley) and an office in Manchester City Centre.
