Scott Davis '80, President, FLIK International Corp.


As president of FLIK International Corp., Scott Davis has positioned the company as a preferred brand in upscale corporate dining under the Compass Group umbrella. FLIK's unique niche of providing upscale and authentic food selections sets it apart from others in the industry, and maintains a client list that includes some of the world's most prestigious financial and legal institutions.

When asked what significant challenges he’s faced in bringing FLIK to an industry-leading position, Davis claims, “Growing an organization organically on a national scale. It’s also been a challenge to achieve revenue targets and maintain gross margins in a volatile economy.”

Regarding the current state of the industry, Davis is encouraged by its growth, and the increasing skill levels of employees, saying, “The growth of the hospitality industry is out-growing the availability of [human] resources, and organizations are being challenged to develop, retain and grow their talent base.  The need for a corporate development platform will continue to provide solid growth opportunities for hotel and conference center development.”

Davis credits his education and experiences at JWU for his success, noting that the strength of relationships he has made through his affiliation with the university, and the respect that JWU commands in the industry as factors in helping him achieve prosperity with FLIK International Corp.
