“By embracing change and thinking creatively, we can make change our ally.”
Howard Swimmer

Musical instrument (MI) and entertainment visionary Howard Swimmer founded HRS Unlimited in order to bring breakthrough instrument design and performance experiences to life. He conceived and successfully launched the game-changing John Page Classic “custom production” guitar brand and Bloodline by John Page pickups, and made major industry news by conceiving and implementing the online introduction of a new track by John Page Classic virtuoso Eric Gales.

Howard brings unique vision, passion and energy to all aspects of the HRS Unlimited operation, including corporate strategy, program innovation and development, overall management and planning, sales, marketing and artist relations. He launched HRS Unlimited while also serving as President of HRS Management. In that capacity he worked with numerous performers including the Gregg Allman Band, Living Colour, Scott Sharrard, Matt Schofield and Steve Kimock. Howard serves as an Advisor to Music Is My First Language, aimed at fostering and sustaining musical talent among disadvantaged youth.

In 2009 Howard conceived, co-founded and was named President of Premier Builders Guild (PBG), a dream team of boutique guitar and amplifier master builders. He conceived, negotiated and oversaw all elements of PBG’s breakthrough “… at TRI Studios” co-branded, integrated marketing program that featured a series of leading artists playing PBG gear at Bob Weir’s state of the art performance and broadcasting studio. The program drove record awareness and sales in a very short time.

Howard originated and negotiated PBG’s unique partnership with leading lifestyle brand John Varvatos. The program featured the installation of PBG guitars at the acclaimed Varvatos CBGB store in New York City, unveiled at a special “Live from Varvatos” concert. The program was featured in leading guitar and lifestyle publications.

Before PBG, Howard owned and managed a leading audio boutique in Pittsburgh, PA, where he represented Audio Research, Martin Logan and other exclusive brands. He also launched and headed a successful commercial construction company.

Howard previously managed the career of internationally renowned pop artist Burton Morris. He conceived and negotiated Morris’s selection as artist for the 76th Academy Awards® and a one-man exhibition at the Olympic Museum in Lausanne, Switzerland, both major breakthroughs for the artist.
