Vern Davis

With over sixteen years’ experience building brands with Diageo and Beecham, there isn’t a single thing about the food and drink world that Vern doesn’t know. He’s traveled across six states, moved home seven times, and managed over twenty different brands. Once upon a time, Vern Davis used to employ Protis Global to find his talent, but after years of working with us, a wonderful relationship, and burning ambition, he became part of our family. Which means he knows everything about the people he recruits for, he used to be one of them.

He might look intimidating, but he’s soft as butter on the inside and hopelessly devoted to his family, his team, and the pursuit of changing lives. He met his wife in university thirty-five years ago, and he’s still as starry-eyed as a newlywed.
