Henry Dixon

Chairman/CEO

Henry is the Founder and CEO of Datatrac Corporation. Henry received a Bachelor’s degree in Industrial and Systems Engineering from the University of Florida and went on to obtain a Master’s Degree in Industrial Management from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 1970 where he taught a freshman course in computer fundamentals. After completing his Master’s degree at Georgia Tech, Henry served as an officer in the 1st Infantry Division of 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 founded Datatrac Corporation in 1977 providing services 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.  The company achieved early success with its COPS product and soon became the leading supplier of technology solutions for the courier and messenger industry.

Henry also helped to start ReMartUSA Inc, an internet reseller of auto parts and Efill America Inc, a national warehousing company with over 130 warehouse facilities located throughout North America. He is also managing partner of Wild Wing Capital LLC, a capital investment company.

In 2015 Henry was inducted into the CLDA Hall of Fame for his pioneering contributions in technology for the same-day, local delivery industry. He and his wife Betsy have 5 children and 5 grandchildren. His interests include bird hunting, outdoor adventures and keeping up with his family.
