Bryan L. Howard Sr., M.B.A. – Director of Programs
Bryan joined our team in August, 2011. He believes in the power of leadership and has spent most of his career advocating for his country and community. As a program facilitator, he is passionate about delivering our in-class mentoring and life skill development curriculum.
Prior to joining Winning Futures, Bryan was the process excellence manager for the Detroit based facilities management company Powerlink. While at Powerlink he also served as the company’s corporate trainer. In that role his responsibilities included developing alternative employee learning methods, peer coaching, e-learning, and curriculum development to support workforce development and organizational benchmarks.
“You can’t put a price on a good mentoring relationship,” said Bryan. “Our program allows young adults to find their passion and chase their dreams.”

He retired in April 2007 as the career information program manager for all naval bases in the Pacific Northwest.
