Howard started his career in the healthcare communications arena over 20 years ago working for several prominent New Jersey-based hospitals and healthcare systems before joining Lanmark Group in 1999 as Public Relations Manager. Over the course of five years, Howard received five promotions within the Agency, with his fifth being the most prominent position of all, President. Three short years later he took over full leadership as Owner. With an above-and-beyond approach that he applies to all aspects of his work coupled with his “no is not an option” philosophy, and an extensive background in building and repositioning brands from the ground up, Howard has contributed to the success of many prominent companies including industry giants such as Dentsply Sirona, Johnson & Johnson and Wm. Wrigley Companies.
Howard holds a true philanthropic spirit that he’s displayed not only behind the scenes in his personal life, but throughout his career. This spirit of generosity has penetrated throughout the entire Lanmark360 culture affecting each and every member. He established a program that turns “downtime” into “uptime” where all employees are encouraged to use free time to support nonprofit organizations and charities that they hold dear. One such charity is JAR of Hope, a nonprofit organization dedicated to saving the lives of children with Duchenne muscular dystrophy. As a member of the Board of Directors, Howard is instrumental in the organization’s growth by providing strategic marketing direction and implementing various campaigns to help spread awareness of the disease and raise funds for research and treatment. In 2016 he received the Captain’s award for outstanding efforts and contributions.

Wherever, whenever, however – that's how our clients' audiences are consuming media. And they're doing it all in mad dashes of thumb flicks, swipes and clicking. I say this because after graduating Syracuse and heading to Madison Avenue, the way the ad world worked was so different. One big campaign of TV, print and radio was about all you were supposed to be doing. The greatest thrill of my 22 years in this industry has been seeing this transition, and more importantly, excelling in it. After a stint at one of the largest agencies in the world, both in traditional and digital divisions, I returned home to the beach to find more local pursuits where I can be close to family and the waves. Not sure who was luckier to find each other – Lanmark360 or me. Probably me. Yeah, definitely me.
In my spare time, I make custom surfboards. Hit me up if you want one. I adopted a rescue dog and named her Pooka. She is now employed at Lanmark360 where she serves as "Director of Fun." I thoroughly enjoy good sleeping weather. September and October are the best months in the year. I believe winter should last from Thanksgiving until January 2, and then spring should be canceled and summer and fall extended. I also strongly believe that if you are in the position to help someone, then you should do just that. Karma is real and it will come back to you.
