President & Founder
Howard got his start in the advertising industry after graduating from the University of Georgia. During a stint in Miami he worked as an advertising liaison with all of the south Florida based cruise lines and tour operators and fell in love with the industry. Moving back to Atlanta and opening in 1988 as The Cruise Authority, the business quickly carved out a niche for clients who wanted true guidance and heightened services for their travel experiences. In 2015, the name was changed to The Cruise & Vacation Authority to more accurately reflect the broad range of travel options we offer to our client.
