Founder and Jr. VP,

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, 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 “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
