Howard became involved in the hotel industry in the late eighties with investments into what at that time was ITT Sheraton. These hotel investments complimented the family’s core business at that time.
Over the years the company has acquired and still operates hotel brands other than Starwood brands resulting in a well-balanced property portfolio in the upper mid scale and upscale market. Today, included in the company’s hotel portfolio are two Four Points by Sheraton hotels. They include the 197 room Four Points by Sheraton Ann Arbor and the 149 room Four Points by Sheraton Milwaukee North properties. Howard and the rest of the management team are truly proud of these two hotels and their excellent performance.
For the past three years Howard has represented Starwood’s ownership group as a member of Starwood’s North American Owners Advisory Council. This council meets at least twice per year with Starwood’s senior management.
In addition to hotels, one division of Howard’s company is focused on real estate development and the company is currently actively involved in both real estate management and development in both the Midwest and the Southeast USA.
