Howard joined the Board of Peer Group plc in May 1997. He started his career in the Estates Department of The Prudential Assurance Company in 1976. After qualifying as a Chartered Surveyor he specialised in investment matters and became particularly involved in the development and application of discounted cashflow appraisal techniques. He left The Prudential in 1994, where he had been responsible for the Central London investment portfolios. Between 1994 and 1997, Howard was a Partner at GVA Grimley where he established the Fund Management Department, offering strategic property investment services to clients.
As Managing Director of Peer Group plc, Howard is responsible for the day to day running of the Company but has a “hands on” approach to asset management, investment and finance. He is also a Director of the Mondello Park group of companies in Ireland.
Outside of work, Howard is a keen motor racing enthusiast, competing at an amateur level in a Porsche Boxster and a historic Ford Capri. He also enjoys track days and motor cycling.
