David Davis Chosen as New Director of EEOC’s St. Louis District

ST. LOUIS – David Davis has been chosen as the new director of the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s (EEOC) St. Louis District, the federal agency announced today.

“I am delighted that Mr. Davis has accepted this position,” said EEOC Chair Charlotte A. Burrows. “He brings to the role of District Director a wealth of knowledge and experience from his time in both the private and public sectors, and I am confident that he will continue to provide excellent leadership for the St. Louis District in service of our agency’s mission.”

Davis said, “I am honored to be selected as district director for the St. Louis District. Beginning my new role on the 60th anniversary of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom makes it even more special. I look forward to working with our dedicated staff to achieve the Commission’s vision of fair and inclusive workplaces with equal employment opportunity for all.”

Davis, who is currently acting district director for the St. Louis District, joined the EEOC as the deputy district director in Aug. 2021. He will start his new role on Aug. 28, 2023.

Prior to joining the Commission, Davis served as chief counsel of the Missouri Department of Social Services’ Administrative Hearings Unit after serving as a hearing officer and managing attorney. Before entering government service, Davis was in private practice for over 20 years. During his litigation career, Davis represented plaintiffs and defendants in a wide variety of cases, including employment and civil rights matters.

Davis is a graduate of Saint Louis University, where he earned his bachelor's degree in business administration. He also holds a juris doctor from Creighton University.

The EEOC’s St. Louis District Office is responsible for receiving and investigating charges of employment discrimination and conducting agency litigation in Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Nebraska, and a portion of southern Illinois, with area offices in Kansas City, Kansas and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
