About Us

Howard Schultz, President/Owner

Schultz opened the York County offices in May, 2003 after a successful career directing the growth and development of numerous entrepreneurial technology companies. The death of his dad the year prior prompted the career change, moving from "high tech" to "high touch." Under his ownership, the York County Home Instead offices have grown considerably and have won numerous awards for excellence and achievement. He has served on numerous franchisor-franchisee committees, including Home Instead Senior Care's Franchise Exchange Council, a select owner-advisory board, whose members are elected by fellow owners.

Schultz and his wife Victoria Winston live in Biddeford Pool and have three grown sons.
