Raoul Davis is a savant. His expertise in executive branding & strategy is superb and far exceeds his age. I often marvel at his understanding of brand penetration. And his application is flawless. He is the LeBron James of branding: smart, polished, and thorough. He keeps me on my toes and there is no one I'd rather call when I need a question answered or an expert viewpoint. Being in the same industry, I often run across competitors who have no idea what they are doing. Raoul is just the opposite. He is your favorite brand manager's brand manager. If I were a Fortune 100 CEO or a talent with a major brand, he could represent me in a heartbeat. He is that good."
- Arthur Smith, CEO of AGS Media
