Bruce Holmes has had a lifelong commitment to helping others and giving back to his community. His election to the Henry County Board of Commissioners is a continuation of this service to others. As District 5 Commissioner, he continues to create and grow opportunities to serve and support his community in areas of public safety, quality of life, transportation infrastructure and business development.
Although Bruce has deep family roots in Jones County Georgia, he was born on a military base in El Paso, TX while his father was serving in the United States Air Force. After being raised in Detroit, Michigan he moved on to earn his Bachelor’s degree from the University of Minnesota in 1987 and went on to earn his Masters in Business Management from the University of Minnesota St. Mary’s.
Shortly after his election, Commissioner Holmes established the Commissioner Bruce Holmes Youth Foundation (CBHYF) with mentoring components called “Project Exposure” & “Project Blossom” which helps to guide youth in a positive direction by exposing them to environments meant to open their minds to potentially new possibilities and horizons. The athletic component of the foundation works in conjunction with the Henry County Parks and Recreation Department.
He is Vice President of WeAreHr, LLC & Broker, WeAreHr Insurance Agency specializing in HR Consulting, Employee Group Benefits and Life Insurance for families. Prior to his current position, Commissioner Holmes enjoyed a successful career in the Pharmaceutical, Biotech and Molecular Diagnostics Industry, with 16 years in national accounts managing large healthcare systems across the country, before transitioning into the insurance and financial services sector.
He has been the recipient of multiple awards, including being recognized as the 2013 Commissioner of the Year by the Georgia Minority Business Awards (GMBA), and as one of the Atlanta Business League (ABL) 2014 “Men of Influence.”
