“Find your differentiator.”
What is Scott Davis’ differentiator? “I knot up every day.” Davis said.
He considers wearing a tie daily, so it is one of the attributes that sets him apart from others in the industry. Davis is the president of Beecher Carlson’s property and casualty division and one of five founding partners of the company. He helped start Beecher Carlson’s Nashville office and is now working to expand their West Coast operations.
“Why? Because no one in our industry does,” he said, referring to the business-casual culture he feels that is now the industry dress code standard.
Davis has spent his entire career in insurance and risk management and specializes in healthcare and medical malpractice.
After earning safety management and environment safety degrees at Indiana State, Davis got his start in the industry as a loss-control specialist and worked his way into sales and eventually into leadership positions with several global insurance companies, including Lockton and Willis.
Davis sold his Lockton office to Willis, both in the Nashville, Tenn. area. With Willis he became senior vice president and led one of the company’s most successful teams in the southwest region before starting Beecher Carlson.
