Director, Homrich Berg
Julian Davis is a numbers guy and a people person. As a director at Homrich Berg in Atlanta, he’s able to make the most of those skills by helping clients reach their financial goals, and through developing team members.
In 2020, Davis was tapped to shape the firm’s culture by leading the newly created diversity, equity and inclusion committee. In that role, he’s helped launch a heritage program and rallies employees to celebrate events like Hispanic Heritage Month, Black History Month and LGBTQ awareness. He also leads recruiting efforts at historically black colleges and universities and other schools to attract talent.
“A lot of young people don’t even know that this is a career option,” he said. “I’m able to go out and tell students about it, and let them see that there are places where you can come and be yourself and enjoy the work that you do within this industry.”
Outside of work, Davis gives time to United Way’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program, providing free tax preparation assistance to qualifying taxpayers. He and his wife, Ashlee, have a 3-year-old son and a newborn daughter; and Davis is close to his three younger brothers. “Family is very important to me,” he says. “I want to make sure I’m setting a good example.”
