Don Davis, Founder
Don Davis offers over 30 years of information technology, business development, and operations experience in a wide range of industries that includes ITO and BPO – retail – manufacturing – warehousing, distribution and logistics – travel – healthcare and biotech – media and publishing – cellular and satellite communications – AIA commercial construction, and audio/video.
Don established DTS, LLS in 2004, recognizing that technology, data center facilities and IT operations must be agile, and adapt to business demands. Business development and growth should not be impacted by IT, but rather IT should support all current, and facilitate future business.
Through Don’s leadership, DTS helps its clients by assessing their current technology, business initiatives, and future business strategies, and develops a program to ensure alignment.
Don has held Vice President of Technology positions at multiple publishing properties of Capital Cities/ABC, Inc., followed by a Vice President of Technology position at Resource Print Management, where Don raised sales revenues by over $10M within two years by implementing online sales, streamlining warehousing and distribution operations, and integrating systems with UPS, FedEx and freight carriers.
At Affiliated Computer Services (ACS) Don rapidly progressed through several senior positions, and established a new Global Service Delivery organization to manage and execute large data center migrations. Under Don’s leadership, this group significantly improved the quality of service to ACS clients by bridging the gaps between Sales, Service Delivery, and the PMO. Global projects throughout North and South America, and Europe, were managed by this group.
Following ACS, Don was engaged as an independent consultant by The E. W. Scripps Company to assess the IT Department for one of their most successful publishing and media divisions. That led to a lead management role in the construction of a new $95 million, 186,000 sq. ft. multimedia production and office facility, where Don also designed and implemented a fully redundant technology infrastructure and data center. Through Don’s leadership that project completed on schedule with over $13 million in savings.
Don continued consulting with Dell’s Business and Technology Consulting division, where he completed an IT in-sourcing project for a global biotechnology company. Early completion of migrating over 50 applications within multiple environments, had no impact upon business operations, and significantly contributed to Dell receiving the client's CIO 2011 Supplier of the Year Award for service excellence.
Don has also collaborated with WGroup Consulting to provide clients with sound IT strategic plans – infrastructure and data center assessments – data center design/build and relocations – sourcing advisory, RFP development and negotiations – DR strategies, and interim IT executive roles. Recent engagements include a major U.S. Airline, a large manufacturing company, and a large retailer.
