Jimmy Davis


As a consultant on the Executive Bench team, Jimmy Davis applies his talents to helping business leaders identify and strengthen their readiness for that all-important next step up in their careers. He collaborates with senior executives across industries including energy, consumer packaged goods, retail, pharmaceutical, and healthcare, and he leverages his psychology and leadership development background to help clients on their journey of career succession.

As a trusted advisor to the leaders who impact the lives of thousands of people, Jimmy takes his role seriously—but never without a healthy dose of humor and authenticity too. Jimmy’s personable demeanor, coupled with his ability to offer perspectives that may have been previously overlooked, enables him to drive key results for his clients. Prior to joining RHR, Jimmy spearheaded leadership development and HR initiatives at The Home Depot. He then served as an external consultant for diversity and inclusion initiatives, succession planning, high-potential identification, and executive coaching before founding his own business, Blacksmith Consulting Company.

Off the clock, Jimmy can be found investing in his community, both as a professor of psychology at Clark Atlanta University and as a board member of a local service organization for at-risk youth. He is also an avid golfer and reader who thoroughly enjoys a cigar and a good bourbon.
