MR. HOWARD HAUGHTON IS A PROMINENT FIGURE OF THE NON-PROFIT AND BIASED BUSINESS WORLD. HE'S BEEN A BUSINESS EXECUTIVE AT MANY DIFFERENT COMPANIES INCLUDING HIS CURRENT ENGAGEMENT AS CFO WITH CITY HARVEST OF NEW YORK.

UNFORTUNATELY NOT A SINGLE SOUL IN THIS WORLD CAN SAY ANYTHING GOOD ABOUT HIM. LET ME TAKE THAT BACK. A LOT OF BUSINESS AND POLITICAL FIGURES IN NEW YORK AND NEW JERSEY WILL TALK WELL ABOUT HIM, ONLY BECAUSE OF HIS CLOSE RELATIONSHIP WITH CONGRESSMAN CHARLES RANGEL (MR. HAUGHTON IS MARRIED TO HIS DAUGHTER). OTHER THAN THAT HE IS AN INCREDIBLY LAZY AND SLUGGISH INDIVIDUAL WITHOUT ATTENTION TO DETAIL AND WITH NO REAL HANDS-ON EXPERIENCE IN BUSINESS.

EVERY JOB THAT HE HAD IN THE PAST WAS SUCCESSFUL BECAUSE OF THE PEOPLE SURROUNDING HIM. HIS EMPLOYEES DO EVERYTHING, HE TAKES THE CREDIT. ALSO HE IS A COMPULSIVE LIAR AND A PHONY AND HAS MADE A LOT OF AWFUL MISTAKES.

ON THE PERSONAL SIDE I KNOW FIRST HAND THAT HE WAS INVESTIGATED FOR POTENTIAL FRAUD AND RACKETEERING NOT ONCE BUT TWICE IN THE PAST 5 YEARS BUT AT THE END, HIS FAMILY CONNECTIONS WERE CRITICAL IN DISMISSING THE INVESTIGATIONS AT ONCE. BOTTOM LINE, HE IS A MEDIOCRE BUSINESS INDIVIDUAL WITH NO SPECIAL SKILLS OTHER THAN HIS CONNECTIONS AND POLITICAL NETWORKING AND YES, HE IS ALSO A CHEATER AND A PLAYER. HOW DO I KNOW THESE THINGS?

I'VE BEEN HIS SIDE GIRLFRIEND FOR MANY YEARS AND I'M NOW WORN OUT AND TIRED OF WAITING FOR HIS BROKEN PROMISES ABOUT GETTING DIVORCED AND FORMING A FAMILY WITH ME. OF COURSE, BY PUBLISHING THIS I'M SURE THAT I WILL BE THREATENED BY SOME OF HIS PEOPLE BUT I DON'T REALLY CARE ANYMORE. SOMEONE HAS TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS GUY. GOOD LUCK YOU ALL AND PLEASE POST ANY COMMENTS YOU MIGHT HAVE ABOUT HIM ON THIS SITE.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS REPORT IS NOT DIRECTED TOWARDS CONGRESSMAN RANGEL ON THE CONTRARY I BELIEVE THAT HE IS AN AWESOME AND KIND PERSON. HIS ONLY MISTAKE MIGHT BE HELPING HIS DAUGHTER WITH HIS MARRIAGE BUT WHAT FATHER WOULDN'T DO THAT?

#1 Consumer Comment

Howard: A total waste of time with exceptional references

AUTHOR: TammyW - (United States of America)

Thank you for sharing this on your blog. I also found your other posts and found them very interesting.

Im astonished that this fool actually found another job. Ive known Howard since his Schering-Plough days and I must agree 100% with what you have posted here. The only reason why companies hire Howard is because of his great references based on his relationship to Charlie Rangel. As you all probably know he is married to his daughter and that of course opens many doors. Once a new company or as I call them victims checks Howards references everything looks great. Its afterwards that they discover his real self. Howard is terrible at what he does.

He is probably the idlest CFO in the world. 95% of his work is delegated to others yet he takes all the credit for it. He has no prudent judgment and he has a very superficial and basic knowledge of accounting and finance practices.  The only place where Howard can get away with this are non-profits hence his current job and previous tenures. Usually non-profit organizations are not as severe with their accounting and finance practices or they dont have anyone onboard that can actually verify what the CFO is doing. In the past I tried to have basic MBA-type conversations with Howard and he couldnt follow. Ive seen him making disastrous decisions just to get bailed out by consultants or someone on his team.

The thing is that he is an excellent speaker and knows how to BS people by using his sharp, polished presentation skills. Once you meet this guy for the first time you might be blown away thinking that he is really good but again as time goes by you realize that you didnt get what you paid for. A testimony of that is his career-killing job hopping. What happens is that once an organization or company realizes that he is underperforming, they are in no position to directly firing him because of his ties to Rangel.

What they usually work out is a mutually-agreed type of discharge so they dont get a PR shit storm. Think of Howard as the ugly girlfriend that you want to get rid of but dont want to hurt her feelings. You shop her around your friends and speak highly about her with the hope that someone will pick her up. Bottom line, I bet my money that he wont last as CFO of the Riverside Church. The same way he didnt make it at Titan, City Harvest, Schering-Plough or Simon & Schuster.

#2 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Leave it alone

AUTHOR: Julia - (U.S.A.)

Girl you need to watch for this guy and his friends. He belongs to something way over your head. He will make your life miserable. He will find you and your family anywhere and will scar you for life or more. Watch your back. It happened to me.
