Angele Davis
Commissioner of Administration

Commissioner Davis has earned a unique reputation as a respected public servant and business executive, with more than a decade of leadership applying strategic planning models in both public and private sector environments.

Prior to being appointed Commissioner, beginning in 2004 Angele Davis served as Secretary of the Louisiana Department of Culture, Recreation & Tourism, where she led policy development and oversight of the offices within the department, including Tourism, Cultural Development, State Parks, State Library, State Museum, and Management and Finance. As CRT Secretary, Davis applied innovative accountability measures to her department's operations and directed a new strategic process, resulting in a blueprint for action, 'Roadmap for Change', a master plan for transforming the department.

Commissioner Davis formerly served as Deputy Commissioner of Administration for Governor M.J. 'Mike' Foster, Jr., where she was charged with the oversight of state government administration, including budget and planning, capital outlay, information technology, facility planning, purchasing and procurement, risk management, group health insurance, human resources and training.

As an advocate for public-private partnerships, Commissioner Davis worked with the Select Council on Revenues and Expenditures in Louisiana's Future (SECURE) and cabinet level officials to implement practices designed to streamline state government operations. Her passion for strategic planning has been influenced by more than 13 years of experience in project management and business administration, including e-business and package enabled business transformation, process reengineering, procurement process analysis and logistics, warehouse and transportation management systems. Commissioner Davis is a strong advocate for e-government and the promise of technology to streamline governmental services, drawing on her experience as management consultant with IBM Global Services, prior to joining the Foster Administration. She is recognized for excellence in planning, having served as executive project manager of the Capitol Park Interpretive Plan, where she worked with government officials and community leaders to transform the state capitol complex into the Capitol Park.

Commissioner Davis has a longstanding commitment to community service, currently serving on the Board of Directors of the Junior League of Baton Rouge and as a volunteer at St. Joseph Cathedral.

Commissioner Davis was the recipient of the Baton Rouge Business Report's 2006 Influential Women in Business Award and also received the publication's 'Top 40 Under 40' Award. In addition, she was named 'Louisiana Outstanding Young Woman', 'Baton Rouge Outstanding Young Woman' and graduated from the Greater Baton Rouge Leadership and Louisiana Leadership programs. Executives from across the state's tourism industry joined at the 2006 Louisiana Tourism Summit to present then-Secretary Davis with the Louisiana Hospitality Leadership Award as an expression of gratitude for her effort spearheading the Lt. Governor's Rebirth Plan and for her leadership and dedication during and after the 2005 hurricane season.

Commissioner Davis received her Bachelor's Degree in Communications from Spring Hill College and a Master's in Business Administration from Louisiana State University.
