She had previously worked as an executive vice president of customer insights and analytics at Walmart, and held positions at Sam’s Club,  direct-marketing agency Rapp Collins Worldwide, Yum Brands, Starwood Vacation Ownership and Harrah’s Entertainment/Promus Hotel.

Davis is expected to return to the retail sector, according to a person familiar with the matter.

Davis reports to Bruce Rosenblum, president of business operations for Disney-ABC Television Group. She recently offered an endorsement of Nielsen’s ability to measure so-called “out of home” viewers, or people who watch TV in bars, hotels, airports and at the homes of friends or relatives.
