David C. Lenoir


David C. Lenoir is a lifelong Memphian who had a successful 20-year career in the financial services industry before being elected Shelby County Trustee in 2010. During his almost four years in office Mr. Lenoir has focused on improved operational efficiency, proactive collection of delinquent taxes, and aggressive efforts to stabilize the tax base. As the county’s banker, Mr. Lenoir has aggressively focused on putting delinquent properties back on the tax rolls, thus increasing tax collections. He has strived to provide taxpayers with financial tools and financial access. Initiatives have stressed the benefits of saving and remaining debt free through his Project H.O.M.E. workshops, Home for the Holidays foreclosure prevention events and the Bank On Memphis collaboration. In 2011, Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam asked Mr. Lenoir to serve with the Delta Leadership Institute to help address problems specific to the Delta Region with solutions that incorporate community and collaboration. Institute teams work together to provide the energy and initiative to transform our area and to improve the quality of life for our friends and neighbors. In 2012, he turned his attention to local needs and joined the board of director of RISE, a Memphis-based nonprofit focused on providing financial literacy curriculum geared to low-income workers and teens. In 2012 his accomplishments were recognized when he was named Trustee of the Year for West Tennessee by the Tennessee County Trustee Association. In 2014 the Trustee accepted the Pinnacle Achievement Award from the National Association of State Treasurers for the proactive financial literacy outreach by the Trustee’s Office. Mr. Lenoir is a graduate of the University of Alabama’s Culverhouse School of Accountancy where he received his B.S. in accounting and worked in the financial services industry in Memphis before seeking public office. In his free time, he enjoys hunting and fishing with his two boys and is an avid reader and amateur apiarist (beekeeper) and gardener. Mr. Lenoir and his wife Shannon live on a small family farm in east Shelby County.
