Chuck Davis is a lecturer in the hospitality management program and the Vice President of Human Resources at Cameron Mitchell Restaurants. Since 2002, Chuck has helped ensure the best practices and policies are in place to attract and retain great Associates, and to support the company’s principle goal of always putting Associates first.
He makes it a priority that all employment-related subjects are handled with careful consideration of our strong company culture as well as his comprehensive expertise and knowledge of labor laws and issues. Chuck is skilled at training managers so they are well-prepared to follow employment laws while remaining mindful of the CMR culture.
A native of San Jose, California, Chuck graduated from the University of Santa Clara with a business degree. He served as an officer in the U.S. Army Reserves; worked for the Marriott Corporation, in both their theme park and hotel divisions; and worked for Interstate Hotels for 19 years in positions including Senior Director of Recruitment and Succession Planning and Regional Director of Human Resources. While with Interstate Hotels, Chuck earned his Master's degree in Labor Relations from Indiana University of Pennsylvania and earned the designation of Professional in Human Resources from the Society of Human Resources Management.
Chuck greatly values the opportunity to be a part of—and to help influence—a growing and progressive restaurant company with such solid values and a culture which supports the growth of its Associates. When pressed to choose his favorite CMR dish, Chuck claims he can’t resist the Ahi Tuna Tartar at Ocean Prime.
When Chuck isn’t working, he enjoys spending time with his family, hiking, watching the Pittsburgh Steelers, great cigars and most 18-year-old Scotches.
