We're excited to announce that Dominic Argentieri has been named President of DAVIS, and Benjamin Cohen, Ronald Juban, Michael Pittsman and Meghan Ulrich have joined the firm’s leadership team as Principals, a transition effective January 1, 2023. In addition to these appointments, Bill Moyer has announced his retirement as Principal, but will remain engaged in the organization through his role as an advisor.
Argentieri, Cohen, Juban, Pittsman and Ulrich will be added to the existing Corporate Leadership Team (CLT) that includes Jim Davis (CEO), Dennis Cotter (Founding Partner) and Peggy Jones (Principal).
Additionally, Michelle Christen, EVP-Finance, Constantine Athanas, EVP, General Counsel and Chris Scanlon, Chief Innovation Officer, will partner with the CLT to round out the strategic planning committee, an executive body designed to establish priorities and set goals. DAVIS leadership agrees that this is a critical move for diversity and inclusion as well as elevating the firm’s growing senior team and creating more depth of leadership for the growing organization.
With offices in Rockville, MD and Philadelphia, PA, DAVIS is one of the largest general contractors in the Eastern United States, building projects across a wide span of market sectors ranging from commercial office buildings and interiors to life sciences and multi-family.
The firm has a team of over 400 professionals and has delivered countless complex projects–from completing the biggest building move in DC history, to building the largest parking garage east of the Mississippi. Founded in 1966, DAVIS became an employee-owned company in 1990 and offers an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP), one way that DAVIS shares profits with employees.
According to Argentieri, “One key priority for DAVIS is to continue to embrace and value diversity as a strength. With our growing leadership team, we are more committed than ever to intentionally building a workplace where our employees and partners are provided the necessary support to be successful. We know our clients will benefit from this inclusive philosophy and this will make our organization strong for the long-term.”
Pittsman added, “Voted on by our employees, DAVIS has been consistently recognized as a Best Place to Work by the Washington Business Journal for 16 years, and we look forward to continuing to invest in our talented team and to drive success through empowering our people. I am especially grateful for Bill Moyer’s leadership as he has had tremendous passion in mentoring all of us to take on this new chapter in DAVIS’ growth.”
