He directs and manages military research and development contracts in the US as well as manages sales accounts for general aviation clients and domestic aircraft OEMs.

Before coming to LEKTRO Henry was already active in statewide politics. Having founded Warrenton High Fisheries (WarHF), Inc. in 2005, he built partnerships with the Oregon Army National Guard, State of Oregon, and Warrenton High School to build a state-of-the-art salmon research hatchery. In 2007 he was appointed to the Oregon Sesquicentennial Commission (OR 150) by Governor Kulongoski. Rising to chair the Youth Legacy Committee on the OR 150, he worked with retired Oregon Supreme Court Chief Justice Wallace P. Carson Jr., and former Oregon Governor Barbara Roberts to plan statewide strategic visioning projects as well as establish 5 legacy parks across the state. In 2009, he led the retrofitting of the WarHF hatchery into the first-ever salmon hatchery to utilize rain water as its primary water source. In 2012, Henry was elected to the Warrenton City Commission at age 23 and shortly after winning reelection in 2016, he was appointed as the Mayor.

In addition to being the youngest Mayor elected in Warrenton’s history, Henry is the youngest person to become a Senior Fellow in the American Leadership Forum of Oregon.

In his spare time, Henry enjoys hiking, fishing, hunting and gardening.
