Superb laser-like customer focus. Awesome ambassador of professionalism and trust. Really smart with a penchant for boldaction. These are just 3 of the many attributes of Howard. I’ve had the pleasure of being close friends with Howard since late July 2005, and amongst the various consultant friends I have, Howard is unique in that he is a natural born entrepreneur. I believe he has enterpreneur DNA flowing through his veins.

I worked with Howard to fill a Japan GM position within my organization. In the end, he found the ideal candidate who was subsequently hired. I was able to communicate my needs easily as Howard understands both the Japanese and US cultures.

We tried several methods to find our Business DevelopmentManager Asia Pacific including multiple advertisements through the web, job portal sites and word-of-mouth, with little results.We began working with Howard late in 2012 and within a few weeks time he was able to locate a very strong candidate who we brought on as our Business Development Manager APAC. His network and connections to Executives in the Asia region is strong and I recommend his services to locate high-level talent for their Asia operations.
