Software engineer · Tech industry executive · Entrepreneur


The short “Meetup” version

I’m John Charles Fleming from Tallahassee, Florida. I am the Group Technology Director for Mango Publishing Group, one of the fastest-growing independent book publishers in the world. I am also the founder of Outcome Labs, a custom software development company located in Tallahassee. Outcome Labs specialize in delivering cost-effective custom solutions with the leading open-source platforms including WordPress, WooCommerce, LearnDash, and Laravel.

Over my career, I have done most of the jobs in a technology company… development, marketing, sales, and services. I have had the opportunity to live in Europe and Asia and worked across a range of industries from high tech to real estate. I have helped close multi-million dollar transactions and moved millions of units through a channel. I have started companies, raised money, built teams, had successes and my share of failures. 

At the core, I guess I am a ‘product guy’. I have had the most fun and success professionally helping build innovative new products and companies that have improved the lives of the people they touched. I have been lucky enough to work with and learn from some very smart people and to be part of fabulous teams that built great products that became market leaders in their space.
