Co-Owner with wife Allegra
FASTSIGNS of Davie
Howard and Allegra opened the FASTSIGNS of Davie in 2007 where they manage the design and production operations. Since opening FASTSIGNS they have continued to build their business despite the economy. Howard believes in a hometown style of customer service, emphasizing “We guarantee our customer's satisfaction and always ask them to evaluate each job we do … While we design and manufacture signs of all kinds; we’re really in the marketing services business."
Howard has been especially active in the Weston Council of the Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce since joining in 2010. He has served on the Taste of Weston organizing committee where they donated the graphics and sign products. FASTSIGNS Davie makes it a priority to contribute to many community programs including WLRN, Classical South Florida, ARC Memphis, Kids in Distress, Komen Rally for the Cure, the Broward County Animal Care Shelter, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and especially the Prostate Cancer Foundation (www.pcf.org).
They have two sons and speak fluent Spanish as she was born in Costa Rica and he worked previously in the hotel business. Howard is from Memphis and later took the family to Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico where he worked as Managing Director-Latin America for Holiday Inn hotels. In his free time, Howard enjoys leisure time with Allegra and their Labrador "Buddy", biking, live music and jazz, travelling and family history research. "I look forward to serving the Chamber in any way we can help. We believe one must first give in order to receive", and added “remember me as Howard from Broward!”
