Calladale was founded in 2003 by Jonathan Furlonger. He brings over 35 years’ experience in leading international consulting and services firms.
Before founding Calladale, he was Vice President and Head of EMEA Research at Gartner, where he was responsible for the research produced by 65 analysts across ten European countries.
Jonathan started his career in teaching, and then moved into information systems in the technology explosion of the late 1970s.
Although an IS professional by background, he has always believed that the technology exists to serve the business, and not the other way around.
As a result, Calladale focuses on the business challenge first, and looks at whether and how information, systems and technology should be used to improve profitability and reduce risk: the goals for any successful business.
Jonathan has an honours degree in philosophy from the University of London, and is a Freeman of the City of London. He has UK government clearance to SC level, is a magistrate on the Wiltshire bench and a trustee of the local Village Hall.
He is a qualified advanced driver to the highest level for a civilian in the UK, and has recently restored a 40-year-old Alfa Romeo Spider. He is now working on a 1990s Lotus Elan.
Any spare time is spent fighting a losing battle against the forces of nature in his Wiltshire garden, and attempting to keep an unruly Labradoodle away from the contents of the fridge.
Calladale is an independent consultancy practice which operates from time to time in conjunction with other consulting and business services firms.
When working on our engagements, their consultants perform the same functions, under the same conditions, and to the same levels of quality as our own full-time employees.
Where appropriate, we enter into legal agreements with our partner firms. These agreements govern the relationship, and include confidentiality and non-compete clauses to protect both the partners and their clients.
Each partner respects the other’s right to pursue independent business interests, but they aim to collaborate wherever appropriate.
Having arrangements like this means we can offer our clients the best possible levels of service and ensure we have the best skills available to work on a particular engagement.
