LATICRETE has created a new strategic international role and promoted Kirby Davis to global accounts manager. Davis will play a pivotal role in leveraging the company’s brand and reputation in the U.S. to build and maintain relationships with key decision makers in North America conducting and/or designing projects in overseas markets. Focusing largely on China, India, South East Asia and the Arabian Gulf, Davis will work closely with architects and specification teams on behalf of multi-national corporations, hotels, restaurants and retail outlet chains, to develop proprietary specifications for LATICRETE system materials. Davis will expand on key relationships she has already established with high-profile architecture and design firms here in the U.S., shifting her focus and knowledge to international projects spearheaded by North American-based corporations.

Davis has enjoyed great success since joining LATICRETE back in 2007, earning a pair of promotions to her previous position of senior architectural specialist II. In her new position, Davis will report directly to Faisal Saleem, director, international business development.

“We are quite pleased that Kirby (Davis) has joined the international team here at LATICRETE,” said Saleem. “She has excelled in her time here, developing strong relationships with architectural firms and consistently meeting all of her goals. In this senior sales position, we look forward to the same type of results and performance.”

Davis has earned several distinguished certifications since joining LATICRETE, including CSI, CCTS, CDT and LEED AP BC+C. She currently sits on the board of the Dallas Chapter of the Construction Specifiers Institute and is an active member of the Ceramic Tile Distributors Association Green Building Committee. Davis resides in Dallas, TX, and holds a BA from the University of Colorado where she majored in accounting and earned a minor in law.
