Former congressional staffer joins SupplyCore
Bryan Davis has joined Rockford’s SupplyCore as director of government affairs and contracts. A native of the Rockford area, Davis is the former deputy chief of staff to former U.S. Rep. Don Manzullo and served with the legislator for 20 years on Capitol Hill and within the Illinois 16th Congressional District working on economic development and business advocacy. He is also a former military officer who served at the rank of captain in the U.S. Army Reserve, as well as the Illinois Army National Guard. He received his bachelor’s degree in political science and holds a master’s of public administration degree from Northern Illinois University.
In his new role with SupplyCore, he will advocate for good government policies that benefit the company, customers, industry and ultimately the taxpayers with federal, state and local government officials. He will also play an active and constructive role with D.C., and state-based coalitions and associations. Davis will also be responsible for managing contract compliance for the company.
“I am honored to have the opportunity to join a great company based right here in Rockford,” Davis said. “Not only is SupplyCore a successful and growing business, but its owner, Peter Provenzano, is a tremendous corporate citizen dedicated to working to improve our local community, state and nation. I looked forward to being part of a very talented workforce and helping advance the mission of the company in serving the men and women of the U.S. armed services as well as improving the quality of life for our citizens.”
Peter Provenzano, president & CEO of SupplyCore, said: “Bryan Davis has been a major asset to our community during his years serving our citizens as Congressman Manzullo’s senior staff member. We look forward to him leading SupplyCore’s advocacy efforts, not only for the company’s benefit, but for small businesses nationwide. Bryan will also continue his work helping our community move forward in dealing with the many challenges that lie ahead.”
