The National Academy of Best Selling Authors™ was founded by two attorneys, JW Dicks, Esq. and Nick Nation, Esq. Authors themselves, they recognized that only a very limited number of books made the major New York Times Best Seller list and just like the awards shows put on by the entertainment-based organizations, they wanted to have more categories for authors to be accepted and recognized for their accomplishment. The National Academy of Best Selling Authors™ now honors authors from many of the leading independent best-seller lists.

Peter Howley has the unusual reputation, even in Silicon Valley, for making good things happen fast. He has the distinction of accelerating a disruptive Silicon Valley venture backed company, quickly leading it through an IPO and later acquisition, into the pages of American business history as CEO. Centex Telemanagement was recognized as one of the fastest growing, best managed, most profitable companies in both good and bad economies in America. Howley initiated an innovative and successful business culture that retains a magical cult status within customer service focused companies such as Zappos.
Mr. Howley joined the founders of Exodus Communications at its inception. He advised and served on the Board through IPO until June 2000. Exodus still holds a NASDAQ record for 13 consecutive quarters of greater than 40% revenue growth.
“Great guy and huge reason why Exodus succeeded” Craig Buda, Senior Sales Executive
