Plano City Council, Harry has chaired numerous nonprofit boards and commissions. His steadily growing list of community service speaks for itself.
During his service on city council, Harry is very proud of his efforts to promote economic development. He was instrumental in the decision by city council in 2005 to establish a fund to be used to attract and retain businesses in Plano. Since that time, the Economic Development Fund has helped bring almost 17,000 jobs to Plano and landed corporate citizens such as Capital One, Pizza Hut, and Encana Oil and Gas.
Born in Haiti, Harry’s family moved to New York when he was three years old. He and his sister were first generation graduates of their family.
After receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in geology from City College of New York, Harry followed his entrepreneurial spirit and successfully ran a photography studio for eight years. After moving to Plano in 1994, the boy who was good with numbers finally found his calling when he began his career as a financial advisor, a profession he has maintained to this day.
The LaRosiliere family resides in Plano. Harry followed Tracy to Dallas from New York driving the last 18 hours straight with the idea of returning to New York in 3 to 5 years. Now with his wife Tracy and their two daughters, ages 15 and 13 they know that Plano is their family home.
