Houston Astros Jason Howard
VP, Ticket Sales and Service
Jason Howard was named as a vice president with the Astros in 2012. In his role, Jason oversees the ticket sales, service, and operations departments including all premium sales and service efforts for the club. Driven by the organization's vision to better service season ticket holders and grow the fan base, Jason has led an expansion that has nearly tripled the number of relationship-based ticket sales and service representatives since his arrival just after Opening Day in 2012.

Jason joined the Astros from the Arizona Diamondbacks where he most recently served as the organization's vice president of business development from 2010-12. In that position, Jason was responsible for creating, teaching, improving and managing revenue generating tactics across the corporate partnerships, marketing, community affairs, baseball outreach and Spring Training departments while continuing to oversee the club's season ticket and inside sales efforts.

Prior to his stint as vice president with the D-backs, Howard was the director of season ticket and inside sales over three seasons as part of the leadership team that oversaw an organization record in new season ticket revenue in 2008. In addition, more than 80 percent of the inside sales representatives he managed over that period were developed into senior sales and service positions throughout the professional sports industry.

Jason began his career in Indianapolis with Pacers Sports & Entertainment (2004-07), where he got his start in the industry as an inside sales representative before being promoted to season ticket account executive and eventually manager of inside sales for the NBA's Indiana Pacers.

Jason is a 2004 graduate from Cedarville University in Ohio, where he majored in sport management. He and his wife, Mandi, and daughter, Braelyn, reside in Spring.
