Robert Davis, CEO, Rent-A-Center

RobertDavis_2014_approved_LinkedIn_200x200In 1993, armed with a freshly earned Bachelor’s in accounting from SMU, Garland native Robert Davis accepted an entry-level position in the payroll department of a small company called Renters Choice.

In those first few years, a series of acquisitions put the company on the map, and Renters Choice eventually purchased industry leader Rent-A-Center, adopting its better-known name.

Robert became chief executive officer in 2014, more than two decades after he answered a newspaper ad at a company with $53 million in annual revenue. Rent-A-Center’s annual revenues are now in excess of $3 billion.
