    Always enjoyed working with Howard when I did a little work with PM education. He, Stan Yamane and George Mertz had a great team at Vistakon.
    Seems like a great choice for a school leader with his experience as a practitioner, teacher and industry executive.
    Congrats Howard.

    It was fun catching up with Howard, I hadn't spoken with him in quite a while.

    Dr. Yamane was at the AAO meeting in San Antonio as well, it had been years since I'd seen him. Always great to see old friends!
