Eric Davis Brings Two Decades of Financial Leadership to Direct Financial Team


As Visit Tampa Bay continues to add new layers of sales and marketing, plus affiliated organizations that require more complex financial and reporting systems, the Destination Marketing Organization (DMO) has announced the addition Eric Davis, CPA as Vice President of Finance.

Davis spent 16 years with the State of Florida Auditor General as an auditor and supervisor before joining the Housing Authority of the City of Tampa where he was instrumental in updating the accounting systems to work more efficiently. With a strong background in budgeting, auditing, financial planning, expense monitoring, and cash flow management, Davis will bring the sophistication and strategy to elevate the organization to its highest potential.

Corrada, President and CEO of Visit Tampa Bay. "As a mission-driven organization, we are excited to bring on Eric to further our impact in creating vibrant economic developments for our community by collaboratively increasing visitation to Tampa Bay."

"Visit Tampa Bay continues to refine, develop and implement a more sophisticated internal infrastructure to meet the needs of our emerging destination," says JoLynn Lokey, Chief Operating Officer. "Eric Davis is the perfect addition to ensure we are not only following the proper accounting standards and procedures, but we are well prepared financially for the future and any future curve balls that may come our way."
