KEVIN DAVIS INSURANCE SERVICES, A WORLDWIDE FACILITIES COMPANY
Kevin Davis began his career in 1978 and launched his company, Kevin Davis Insurance Services (KDIS), in 2000. KDIS offers products that meet the unique exposures of the community association industry and has a reputation as the leading insurance program administrator in this area.
Davis wanted to build a company with diversity and inclusion at its core; today, KDIS boasts a team that, including management, is 70% women and minorities. Davis believes the greatest change in the industry over the past several years is its commitment to achieving racial equality.
“The insurance industry is finally becoming more open and willing to discuss race and have those difficult conversations,” he says, “which I believe will lead to everyone having access to the same opportunities and feeling valued, welcomed and respected.”
As a member of the National African American Insurance Association and the first African American to serve on the board of directors of the Council of Insurance Agents & Brokers, Davis frequently collaborates on workshops and seminars on unconscious bias, cultural sensitivity, and attracting and retaining diverse talent. “My intent is to bring my unique perspective to those who are open and curious to the challenges faced by people of color and those willing to make a difference,” he says.
In 2015, Davis and his wife started The Kevin Davis Foundation, which focuses on residents of Davis’ hometown of Camden, New Jersey. The foundation provides scholarship opportunities, encourages positive attitudes towards learning, helps develop a love of reading and aims to improve parental engagement. Davis also serves on the board of directors for the Camden Dream Center.
