Henry is the Founder and CEO of Datatrac Corporation. After completing his Bachelor’s degree from the University of Florida, Henry served in the United States Army in Germany. Upon returning stateside, he joined Arthur Andersen & Co and received a CPA certificate while working as a senior systems and business consultant. Henry also holds a Masters Degree in Industrial Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology. In 1977, he founded Datatrac Corporation as a custom software development company.
Not long after Datatrac came into existence, a local Atlanta courier company came to Datatrac looking for a software solution. The owner mentioned to Henry that there was a good opportunity to automate the courier industry, as no software sources were available. Datatrac secured a list of companies in the courier space and sent a direct mail piece to each, asking if they would be interested in software to automate their business. The mailing returned a 35% response, which is far above the usual 5-7% average. Datatrac then began the development of COPS, the Courier Order Processing System. As time progressed, less development outside the courier industry came to Datatrac, and the company’s focus shifted to the transportation industry full time.
In 2003, Henry left daily operations at Datatrac to concentrate on three other companies he helped create: ReMartUSA Inc, an internet reseller of auto parts; Efill America Inc, a national warehousing company with over 130 warehouse facilities located throughout North America; and Wild Wing Capital LLC, a capital investment company. In 2011, he returned to Datatrac as part of Wild Wing Capital LLC, as he and his partner John Oren purchased an outside investor’s stake in Datatrac. He then served as Chairman of the Board of Directors. In February 2012, he returned as CEO.
Henry and his wife Betsy have 5 children and 5 grandchildren. His interests include hunting, outdoor adventures and keeping up with his family.
