“I’m proud that the next generation of leaders will take over as we finish our 55th year in business,” said former CEO, and Zach’s father, Paul Z. Davis. “I have tremendous confidence in Zach and his ability to lead our companies and continue the legacy of our family business.”

Paul Z. Davis will remain as chairman and primary shareholder, after 35 years as the CEO.

I’m excited to take on this new challenge, and thankful for the opportunity to be trusted in implementing my vision for the future of the company.
