FBI Memphis Announces Recipient of Director’s Community Leadership Award

Michael T. Gavin, special agent in charge of the Memphis Field Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, announced that Henry Brenner, director of corporate and community relations for Mercury Investment Group, is the 2017 recipient of the Director’s Community Leadership Award for Memphis.

Mr. Brenner was selected by the Memphis Field Office for his extraordinary service to the Memphis community. He gives back to his community through his extensive fundraising efforts for the Fire Museum of Memphis, the Memphis Downtown Rotary Club, the Juvenile Diabetes Association, and Christian Brothers University. A 1999 graduate of the Memphis Citizens Academy, Mr. Brenner is an active member of the FBI Memphis Field Office Citizens Academy Alumni Association.

The Director’s Community Leadership Awards were formally created in 1990 as a way to honor individuals and organizations for their efforts in combating crime, terrorism, drugs, and encouraging young people to make positive choices. Each of the 56 field offices of the FBI nominates an outstanding community leader to receive the award every year. The 2017 recipients were honored in a ceremony at FBI Headquarters in Washington, D.C., on April 20, 2018.
