William Davenport appointed Chief Financial Officer (CFO) at Aimbridge Hospitality

William Davenport will take over as Aimbridge Hospitality’s Chief Financial Officer as of July 8, the company announced today. Aimbridge Hospitality is a prominent hospitality management company and the largest third-party hotel operator globally. Davenport will directly report to Chief Executive Officer Craig S. Smith and be a member of the executive leadership team of the company.

In his capacity as the company’s chief financial officer, Davenport will supervise its financial management and be directly in charge of accounting, tax, treasury, accounting, compliance, and procurement. For the purpose of advancing Aimbridge’s global expansion strategy, developing new core competencies, modernizing financial reporting systems, and streamlining procedures, he will draw on his more than thirty years of strategic experience in high-growth businesses in the hospitality, restaurant, franchising, and private equity sectors.

Davenport comes to Aimbridge from Velvet Taco, a rapidly expanding restaurant chain, where he most recently served as Chief Financial Officer. He spent ten years as Chief Financial Officer at Topgolf before joining Velvet Taco. During that time, he helped the concept expand from nine locations to over 80 locations across the United States, a global presence, and revenues that exceeded $1.75 billion. Davenport was instrumental in Topgolf’s growth journey, including hiring critical functional talent and scaling the team, working with capital markets, and overseeing the integration of Topgolf into Callaway Golf following the brand acquisition.

After starting his career at KPMG Peat Marwick, Davenport has also held senior-level finance leadership positions at Haggar Clothing Co., Neiman Marcus Group, and Brinker International Inc.

Davenport will collaborate closely with the company’s new Chief Legal Officer, Greg Moundas, and its newly appointed Chief Global Growth Officer, Eric Jacobs.
