As the Principal of The Davis Group, a special event consulting company specializing in retreat development, nonprofit branding & fundraising, and high profile special events, Linda provides creative guidance and event detail to all of the Davis Group events. Working with clients on an intimate level is what defines the Davis Group. The relationship begins with a consultation which then becomes a shared journey of exquisite detail and party design implementation.
Linda began her career in the hospitality industry with Sheraton Hotels inWashington, DC which gave her an opportunity to see the world of events on a large scale. Desiring a more hands-on approach to event planning, Linda left the hotel industry and opened Company’s Coming, a Special Event and Catering business based in her hometown of Annapolis, Maryland. After successfully establishing Company’s Coming into a well-known event production company, Linda pursued a life-long dream and opened The Wild Orchid, an Annapolis top restaurant with an emphasis on serving fresh local seafood, meats and produce. Embracing the sustainable movement of eating in-season, local foods, Linda applied that commitment to the catered affairs ofCompany’s Coming and the Wild Orchid, creating the first company inAnnapolis to change its menu seasonally and design its dishes around regional cuisine, working with local watermen, farmers and organic growers to offer only the freshest, seasonal ingredients. Linda doesn’t just design beautiful and successful events; she orchestrates every aspect of their execution. Working with the best professionals the industry has to offer, Linda has cultivated a loyal clientele over her 30 years in the industry. Nationally known for bringing Diner en Blanc, a world renowned pop updining experience, to Washington, DC, Boston, MA, Charleston, SC and New York, the diverse work of The Davis Group has made them oneof the country’s most sought after event design companies.
Linda divides her time between Annapolis and Charleston where she enjoys the outdoor adventures and historical beauty of both cities. Her greatest joy is working with her two daughters in an industry that creates joyful memories for her clients.
