‘The time has come’, the Walrus said,
’ To talk of many things’
With gratitude and good wishes, we announce the retirement of our Managing Director, Howard Langley and of our Admin and Customer Support Director, Margaret Langley. Since Furlong’s conception in 2003, Howard has been at the forefront of driving the company’s progression, not only in the development of SchoolBase®, but also moving the product into new global markets, particularly into Europe, the Middle East and Asia. Howard has commented that, ‘Furlong has grown with each year and it is great seeing it come of age. I feel that the future for Furlong, our staff and you our clients, has never looked better.’ Both Howard and Margaret have been integral to Furlong’s success and we wish them both well for their retirement. It is not goodbye, however, as Howard will be staying on at Furlong as a consultant after 22nd June 2018. We look forward to working with Howard in the future and to call upon his expertise.
Our Chief Operations Officer, David Ryan, will be picking up the baton from Howard as our Managing Director from July 2018. We look forward to a new era at Furlong, working under David’s direction, to face the challenges ahead. There have been a number of new appointments within the company, so keep an eye on the website for more details!
