As SVP of marketing, Davis will oversee campaigns for the company’s diverse roster; Six Course, of which Davis is CEO, is a creative agency and production company that will include the Six Course Music Group, where Davis will discover, sign and develop artists in association with RCA.

Six Course’s recent campaign for fast food company Wendy’s with a 5-track mixtape titled “We Beefin?” won nine Cannes Lions awards and four Clio awards, including a Grand Prix, and brought Wendy’s a charting album on iTunes.

“I couldn’t be more excited to join RCA and to bring a home to Six Course Music Group,” Davis said. Alongside Peter Edge and John Fleckenstein, I look forward to the label being a destination where all parts of entertainment come together authentically to have the biggest impact and as a place where artists are comfortable and happy to call RCA their home.”
