CEOs to know: Prodege's Chuck Davis

Press Release - December 16th, 2016

Chuck Davis has taken some pretty big risks in his career.
Thankfully, most of them have paid off. Over his 20 years in tech, Davis has brought his expertise to established corporations and early-stage startups alike. Now at the helm of El Segundo-based Prodege, Davis has some advice for young professionals looking to make it in tech.
What's the biggest challenge you have faced in your career?
There is an inherent risk with starting at a new company. Leaving Manhattan for TV Guide in suburban Pennsylvania was a dicey move. Coming to Disney at a time when the internet was just barely launching was a huge risk. We didn’t know if it was just a fad or not. Lucky for me, it wasn’t.
From there, I worked with Bizrate throughout the crash of 2000, and then Fandango where a small team of 35 employees and myself were tasked with expanding the company beyond a ticketing website with only one revenue stream.
With Prodege, I was lucky that I came to a company with a founder, Josef Gorowitz, who had built a great company from the ground up with a clear vision. Initially, we formed a partnership, and today I would call it a friendship. If it had gone the other way, you probably wouldn’t be interviewing me right now. I'm lucky that all of those challenges led to a fun and rewarding journey.
