Testimonials and/or references:
Lee Wunsch, President & CEO, Jewish Federation of Greater Houston (colleague) - “Howard, while at UJC, provided outstanding, meaningful and supportive consultation to the Houston Jewish community while we were in the throws of recovery from Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. He was passionate, helpful and had or would seek answers to all inquiries. He understood all the information required to respond to natural disasters and during Katrina, learned more. While I hope never have to repeat the experience, Howard was terrific to have working with us side by side.”
Alan S. Goldberg VP JCCA Mandel Center for Excellence in Leadership and Management -“I've known Howard Feinberg for more than 25 years. Over the past five years we’ve provided joint consultation to several communities in board development, community restructuring and program evaluation. Howard is a bright articulate individual who analyzes a situation quickly, works well in complicated situations and "thinks on his feet." He is well respected by peers and those with whom he consults. A team player, I’d highly recommend Howard for a consulting or permanent position. He will be an asset to your staff."
William Daroff, VP for Public Policy & Director of the Washington Office, UJC - “Howie was an excellent colleague and a real master of his position. He’s a detail-oriented professional who strives towards (and achieves) excellence at everything he does. His work on behalf of the UJC Emergency Committee was spectacular, and in particular, to the many thousands of individuals in the Gulf States who were impacted by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.”
