Founder & CEO

Along the way, Yext has been leading brands into the future of search by putting them in control of their facts online with brand verified answers. With hundreds of amazingly talented employees serving many of the world’s leading brands, 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.
