Devon Henry has always had the entrepreneurial itch: "It started out small, but before I knew it—it was a rash," he jokes. In 2006, Henry founded Team Henry Enterprises, a multi-disciplinary contracting firm specializing in construction management and environmental, marine, and emergency response services. To him, operating as a team has been one of the most important determinants of his company’s success.
