DAVACO’s Rick Davis Featured in Smart Business Magazine
CEO of Leading Retail Services Company Attributes Success to Employees

Dallas, TX (April 7, 2008) – DAVACO, Inc., the national leading provider of retail services, announced today that Rick Davis, the company’s owner and chief executive officer, was featured in the April 2008 issue of Smart Business Magazine, a specialized business management publication designed to address the challenges associated with growing a business.

“Outfitting Growth: How to Hire the Best of the Best,” by Kristy J. O’Hara, highlights Davis’s approach to employee recruiting and retention. The article cites four key areas that offer the greatest impact on the success of the company: Hire great people; promote from within; communicate; and recognize achievements.  

“Being interviewed by Smart Business Magazine gave me the chance to share with readers what I consider to be the most fundamental key to success—hiring high-caliber people with strong values,” said Rick Davis, CEO. “The biggest mistake you can make as a leader is to underestimate the value of finding the right person for the position you have. That is especially true when you are a service provider. Each employee has the power to directly impact your brand and its credibility.”

DAVACO, the nation’s leading provider of retail services, employs over 600 retail professionals across the country. The company focuses on the management and execution of in-store merchandising, shop-in-shops, high-volume rollouts, resets, retrofits and new stores.

“Many of our programs are completed in an ‘open-store, retail environment’, during operating hours, so it is critical to find professionals who understand the complexities of working in these unique conditions,” said Davis. “When you are moving and growing as fast as DAVACO is, you have to be disciplined to take the time to find the person that best reflects your company’s high standards.”
