Howard Lerman


Howard Lerman is Yext's Founder. He founded Yext in 2006 on the principle that the ultimate authority on a business should be the business itself.

From 2006 until 2022, Howard developed Yext into an innovative, global brand that can live up to that principle. With a mission to help businesses and organizations around the world deliver official answers everywhere people search, Yext is delivering the future of search to thousands of brands, businesses, governments, and organizations worldwide. Howard stepped down as CEO in March 2022, passing the torch to Michael Walrath, Chairman of the Board.

In addition to Yext, Howard co-founded Confide, a leading off-the-record messaging service, and served as its chairman from 2014 to 2020. He is a proud graduate of TJHSST and Duke University.
