Carl Davis

As CEO of Array, I am tasked with charting a strategic course that ensures both financial stability for the firm and provides career opportunities for our staff. My job is made fairly easy by some very talented colleagues. I am not an architect, but have owned and managed several engineering and design firms before joining Array in 2001. I thoroughly enjoy working with my colleagues and introducing new technologies and processes that have allowed us to attract talent and clients that share our core values and culture. In that vein, we recently launched an internal knowledge sharing site that has improved information sharing. One of the best investments we have ever made! I enjoy many outdoor activities, including cycling, skiing, and going on vacation with my grandchildren who keep me in shape!
