Who we are
Melvin J. Howard created a family office to manage a portion of his personal investments alone with a close set of other wealthy families. That family office has grown into Howard Capital Management, organizing the investments and holdings of the Howard family and acting as a platform to explore further opportunities. With a small group of dedicated professional advisors he has expanded into investment management and support services. Mr. Howard got his start in the health care industry spanning over twenty-seven years overseeing the medical division of an American public relation and lobbying firm. He was responsible for the international expansions of the firm’s medical clients such as Squibb, Proctor and Gamble, Merck Frost and McDonnell Douglas where he facilitated over 1.3 Billion Dollars in counter trade transactions. In this capacity, he spent considerable time studying health care systems both domestically and internationally and has been involved in federal lobbying and participating on various medical related steering committees.
