George Davis

African-American Business Executive is Top Advocate for AARP’s 3.1 million members in California


George Davis of Los Angeles, CA, has been appointed AARP California State President. Prior to his appointment, Davis was acting state president and served for two years on the state’s Executive Council, a five-member council that provides direction and leadership in carrying out AARP’s strategic priorities in California.

Davis came to AARP as a distinguished executive in the broadcasting and entertainment industry.  He is currently Principal of Davis Broadband Group, a Culver City based consulting firm that advises media and entertainment companies on digital content distribution.  Earlier in his career, Davis was managing television technical operations in the US and Asia at Technicolor and Sony Pictures Entertainment.

Throughout his career, he has been actively involved in community and public service.  In 1999, he was appointed by Governor Pete Wilson to the board of the California African American Museum.  A few years later Davis was appointed by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to represent the public as a member of the Board of Governors of the California State Bar.  He is also a board member of New Directions, a nonprofit organization that helps homeless veterans.

As volunteer state president, Davis will lead the California Executive Council and work in partnership with State Director Katie Hirning and in collaboration with other volunteers and staff to achieve AARP’s strategic priorities in the state.

“We are thrilled to have George as our new state president,” said Hirning. “He’s a long-time advocate for small businesses and a strong supporter of technology and outreach to diverse populations.  His knowledge and experience in these areas will greatly benefit AARP’s more than 3 million California members.”

Davis is an avid hiker and enjoys collecting rare books when traveling abroad.  He resides in Los Angeles and has two adult daughters and a son attending college.
