|Info||Troy Henry was born and raised in the Lower 9th Ward, then Pontchartrain Park, and now lives in New Orleans East. |
His family has a long legacy of leadership and improving the quality-of-life in the community. His mother was a school teacher, for 35 years his father owned and operated the Lower Ninth Ward’s only neighborhood pharmacy, and his grandfather, Clarence “Chink” Henry, was President of the Local ILA 3000 Longshoreman’s Union.
Troy graduated from St. Augustine High School, completed undergraduate studies at Stanford University, and then earned dual Masters degrees at Carnegie-Mellon University.
After spending 20 years as a corporate executive, Troy and his wife moved back to New Orleans with their three kids. Years later, he started his own successful company, Henry Consulting.
Troy has played a leadership role on some of the most important and successful projects in the City of New Orleans since Hurricane Katrina, and he’s also worked effectively with city governments and elected officials throughout his career, including at the state and federal level.
Troy’s vision is for the City of New Orleans to have more professionalism in City government, greater transparency and accountability, improved streets and infrastructure, less crime and blight, and a strong economy.
