Davis’ family life hasn’t suffered as a result of his demanding schedule and work ethic: He chooses to work hard early, so he doesn’t have to work into the wee hours of the night. His philosophy? “You have plenty of hours to sleep when you’re dead.”
According to Davis, diagnostic equipment is increasingly more complex. If an independent shop wants to be competitive in the marketplace, it has to be up to speed on technology and understand the new sophisticated equipment.
“Electronics is tomorrow’s tool to sell. Cars are so technologically advanced, and the new schooling for the technician is really wrapped around computer systems. It’s not about replacing parts anymore; it’s about diagnosing elaborate computer and electrical systems,” Davis predicts.
As for the future of the sales industry, Davis says “Today’s businesses are geared more towards customer service … Everybody wants to be wined and dined in a professional way.”
Davis’ professional drive already has him prepped to soar amongst the industry elite. His innovative ideas and contributions to his peers, as well as his role as a mentor to the up-and-coming, ensure that he’ll even have a few MAC wing men alongside him as he reaches the sky.
