Davis Fields has been providing marketing services to technology companies since 1995. Since then he has helped companies operating (literally) in garages, all the way to some of the world’s largest technology firms.

Previous to his career as a marketing consultant, Davis was VP Marketing at Parallan Computer, Inc. of Mountain View, California. This venture-backed startup was one of the original providers of “superservers,” which were the first attempts to tackle mid-range and enterprise computing needs with systems based on PC standards.  Before that, he was the Director of Marketing Programs for LAN pioneer Ungermann-Bass, Inc., and came to UB through Industrial Networking, Inc., a factory-floor networking startup funded by UB and General Electric.

As a graduate of UC Boulder, Davis’ first job out of school was at HP. His entire HP career was related to the HP 1000 minicomputer family, predecessor to all of HP’s computer product lines. He last served as HP’s European Product Marketing Manager for the HP 1000, and lived and worked for HP in Böblingen, Germany and Grenoble, France.

In addition to a successful career in tech Davis has run 24 marathons – of 26.2 miles each – in locations that include Berlin, Paris, Stockholm, Rome and Alice Springs, Australia; lived and worked for three weeks in an industrial town near the Ural Mountains in the former Soviet Union, as part of a summer internship with IBM; speaks German, French and Russian; was the volunteer school board chairman at Bethel Lutheran School in Cupertino through most of the 1990s; and served at Mountain View High School as a volunteer math and science tutor.

Davis currently lives in Palo Alto and has two sons, Davy (Davis IV) and Jim (James).
