FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Flourish Welcomes Pete Crawford as Senior Solutions Engineer
Crawford brings over 20 years in the tech sector and 5 years of cannabis operations expertise to lead technical solutions efforts
ATLANTA – Wednesday, December 12, 2018 –Flourish Software is proud to announce and welcome Pete Crawford as the company’s Senior Solutions Engineer. Crawford will be responsible for working alongside Flourish’s sales team to discover clients’ business challenges and establish unique solution prototypes through technical knowledge and experience.
“We are very excited to have Pete join the Flourish team. He brings a wealth of experience from both traditional business and the cannabis industry,” said Flourish CEO Colton Griffin. “We are a technology company that supplies the cannabis and hemp industries with easy to use seed to sale tracking software, and the ability to successfully install this platform and keep our clients happy is priority number one. Pete will play a big part in this success.”
Crawford began his tech career in ISP technical support roles in Denver, Colorado in the mid-90s and one year later co-founded a systems and networking support company in Boulder, Colorado that ran through the Y2K "event". Shortly after, he joined a document management and archival organization as a Sales Engineer designing, developing, and deploying custom platform solutions for its domestic and international customers. From there, he served as IT Director at the largest laser vision clinic in Colorado then operational management roles with multiple Seattle software startups. His final role before jumping headlong into the cannabis industry was managing the shoreside and shipboard desktop infrastructure at Holland America Line.
“With the combination of features, flow, and the founding team’s pedigree, Flourish stuck with me as a serious competitor to watch in this space. When they offered me the opportunity to stake my contribution to such an effort, I jumped at the chance. If it promises to be as wild a ride as I’ve experienced in this industry so far, I’m into it. I’m excited to be onboard!”
In early 2014, Pete was asked to join one of the most accomplished extract and edibles companies in Oregon called Lunchbox Alchemy’s as its first CEO. After guiding the team through expansion from 30 to 300+ retail outlets and equivalent revenue growth, he stepped aside and founded a consultancy, Motagy, where he took on a broad scope of projects in retail, cultivation, licensing, product & patent development, and facility design. One of his undertakings therein was as VP of Supply Chain for Altopa, that built a countertop device, the Oblend, capable of precisely blending custom essential oil recipes on-demand using a smartphone app controller.
