As president of the world-class live event and conference service, Davies was responsible for its Calgary, Vancouver and Toronto offices, with a combined staff of 33 event professionals who have earned international accolades for their work.
The event industry has been hit hard by COVID-19, but e=mc² was the driving force in creating drive-through grad ceremonies for more than 1,000 Calgary high school students at Stampede Park and Spruce Meadows.
The company remains strong and agile, but Davies called upon Kevin Gregor at Boyden Executive Search for a friendly chat and advice.
The advice was to get to the office, as Boyden had been retained by CSI to search for a replacement for the retiring Henwood.
A golfer with a six handicap, hockey player and skier, Davies is a good fit with his new staff and the athletes they work with. But it’s his management skills and creative thinking that will be best used working with athletes, coaches and sport science professionals to develop their clients.
CSI is primarily involved with high-performance athletes, helping them improve Canada’s medal count on Olympic and Paralympic podiums, in overcoming injuries and pushing past personal barriers.
It boasts a world-class training environment staffed by a team of 20 multidisciplinary experts and 40 consultants who, along with CSI’s partners, deliver leading sport science and medicine, coach education and life services.
Davies will have the benefit of working with Henwood this fall to establish a smooth transition.
