Howard began his career in manufacturing with Texas Instruments and was instrumental in them winning the prestigious Malcolm Baldrige award and later with Asea Brown Boveri (ABB). As one of the first Six Sigma Black Belts in the US and an early adopter of Toyota Production System (TPS) methods, Howard used these unique skills to quickly transform average organizations into industry leaders, which rocketed him from Engineer to Senior Vice President. His first role as General Manager, he took a neglected, unprofitable Boston Whaler to breakeven in 6 months and was able to attract Brunswick Marine to purchase the business within the year.
Having effectively used these skills to transform manufacturing businesses, Howard joined GE Capital to test the transferability of these skills into other industries. He quickly developed and translated his manufacturing skills into other industries. He spent the next 15 years applying and refining his proven methods to over 500 companies and numerous industries, with savings and growth to these organizations in excess of $500MM.
