Since moving to Atlanta about a decade ago, Howard and Vicki Palefsky have become integral and indispensable members of the arts community. They have involved themselves in many of our institutions, both as leaders and philanthropists. Howard serves as chair of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and serves on the board of the Atlanta History Center; Vicki is past chair of the board of the Alliance Theatre and was an early supporter and board member of ArtsATL. She has organized successful events for numerous organizations.
Outside of the arts, Howard has been an entrepreneur and executive in the life sciences and healthcare industries, leading businesses that have achieved more than $3 billion in value creation and launched more than 40 products. He formerly served on the board of the Century Foundation of the City College of New York.
