David Henderson was born and raised in Brockville Ontario, and has been active within and serving his community his entire career. He attended Commonwealth Public School, and Brockville Collegiate Institute where he played Football. He did his Bachelor of Science at the University of Waterloo, and his MBA at Queen’s before returning to Brockville. Early in his career he worked, as many have in his community, in the manufacturing sector at Phillips Cables and DuPont Canada. In 1997 he took over the family business at Henderson Printing as President. In 2006 David was elected Mayor of Brockville, re-elected in 2010, and 2014, becoming one of Brockville’s longest serving mayors.
As Mayor, David has championed many economic initiatives, and boosting tourism in the St. Lawrence corridor. He’s served as the Chair of the Eastern Ontario Mayors Committee, and as the Budget Chair of the City of Brockville.
In his spare time David is an avid kayaker (who wouldn't be in the City of the 1000 Islands), a hockey player, and a football coach for his old high school. But most of all he enjoys spending time with his family.
