Founder and Jr. VP, d-mars.com
Mr. D-Mars is working to build a better Houston. Being an entrepreneur
is one thing, but D-Mars is also passionate about empowering others to
become better business owners.
“I believe my calling is [to
be] a community leader for economic development,” says D-Mars, who used
his experience working in marketing and sales at Brown and Ferris to
start his own marketing consulting company, d-mars.com. Since then, the
man formerly known as Keith Davis has been helping small businesses
around Houston and beyond.
“Our company is a full-fledged image marketing company; we start [by
helping] businesses [establish] their identity and we help them through
our networking events,” he explains, adding that he’s also become a
consultant to a very special young businessman; his son, K. Jer’Rod.
“My foundation is for teens and young adults who are aspiring
entrepreneurs,” explains K. Jer’Rod, who is also jr. vice president of
d-mars.com. “I want to give them the vision to be successful
entrepreneurs at a young age. Watching my dad and wanting to be like
him, I developed the same mind-set [he has].”
The dynamic father and son duo are constantly working to keep small and
mid-size businesses growing. “Seeing African American people come
together and work together, that’s what makes me feel good,” says
D-Mars. “And it’s [great] to see African American men inspiring other
African American men.” For the Davis family, that inspiration starts at
home. –todd williams
