Founder & CEO
Howard Lerman founded Yext in 2006 with a single goal: to build an impactful, great company with super talented people. Along the way, Yext has re-invented three industries: pay-per-call advertising, business listings synchronization, and today, digital knowledge management. With hundreds of amazingly talented employees serving many of the world’s leading businesses, Yext is on its way to realizing Howard’s original vision. Yext is Howard’s fourth software company. Howard is also Co-Founder and Chairman of Confide, a leading off-the-record messaging service.
Howard is a proud graduate of TJHSST and barely graduated from Duke University.
