Bernard Howroyd - President
Bernard Howroyd President, AppleOne Bernie Howroyd Bernie has made a career out of making the impossible come true. He has transformed himself from a poor, young butcher's apprentice into a multimillion-dollar businessman and founder of the North America's largest, privately held full-service employment company. Bernie was born in a largely industrial section of England. After working as an apprentice for a local butcher, he scraped together his savings and set off on a journey around the world. To finance his travels, he often worked odd jobs-selling Bibles in Australia and combs in Brazil. "I met thousands of people from as many different cultures and I learned very quickly that no matter where people are from, no matter what language they speak, everyone needs to feel heard and respected." Utilizing this insight, Bernie founded AppleOne Employment Services in 1964. Starting with meager savings, Bernie opened an office in LA's Wilshire District and was down to his last $5.94 before the first placement check arrived. Undaunted he set about building his dream. As the economy fluctuated, so did AppleOne's profitability. "There were times when it was really tough, but we managed," Bernie recalls. "My faith in our people and company paid off." Honored by Ernest & Young as Entrepreneur of the Year, Bernie has perfected the art of combining old-fashioned personalized, one-on-one service with a hunger for out-of-the-box thinking. This is reflected in AppleOne's many candidate and client-oriented innovations including the 5•50 Assurance Plan-the first and only staffing guarantee that protects employers' hiring decisions for up to five full years. Bernie continues to be closely involved in the company he founded, and he tries to get to at least one branch office each day so that he can devote his time to where his passion truly lies: teaching and motivating success one candidate and one client at a time.
