Judyth Piazza & John Errett, The Owl and The Hawk: An End to Terrorism

Judyth Piazza & John Errett, The Owl and The Hawk: An End to Terrorism

By Judyth Piazza CEO (Editor)

A native New Yorker now living in Florida, John Errett has seen the world. His multiple careers - first as president of Holiday Planning Corp., a world wide travel organization; then as a co-founder of United Intelligence, Inc. (UNITEL) and later as vice president of strategic services for Conair Corporation - have afforded him 40 years of extensive international travel and cultural appreciation. John`s first visit to the Middle East in the early 1970s was hosted by the government of Israel.

He had the opportunity of inspecting an air force base and shown the need for additional Phantom Jet aircraft. Standing atop a destroyed Syrian tank on the Golan Heights, he witnessed the vulnerability of Israeli settlements in the valley below and the tensions that continue to plague the region. His interest in both the cultures and hostilities of the region peaked in 1975 when he was re-baptized in the River Jordan.

It was in the same year when his company, Holiday Planning, received the Shalom Award from the Israeli government. As co-founder and vice president of UNITEL he worked on an element of the USA/Iranian hostage crisis in 1980 and 1981. Former Secretary of the Treasury William E. Simon was a member of the UNITEL Advisory Board.
