Mark W. Davis, Chairman & CEO

Mark W. Davis

CEO and Chairman

Mark W. Davis is the Co-CEO of Signal Restoration Services and Chairman & CEO of PuroClean. Since acquiring Signal in 2012 and PuroClean in 2015, Davis has grown both Signal and PuroClean exponentially. He is co-founder and former CEO of Belfor North America. Under the leadership of Davis, Belfor grew tremendously from its US origins as Rocky Mountain Catastrophe in Denver, Colorado. From one office and 33 employees, they grew to 52 offices and 1,700 employees in eight years.
During this major growth, Davis was a young entrepreneur who successfully disrupted the then-stagnant restoration industry. Davis sold his shares in Belfor to Franz Haniel & Cie, GmbH in Germany. He then left the industry for a few years while fulfilling a non-competition agreement. In 2009, Davis became CEO of InStar Services Group. He was recruited to turn around a failing company that had suffered major financial losses in 2007 and 2008. Davis led a successful financial turnaround in the first year resulting in a $16 million net profit. He sold his shares in 2011 and searched for a strong platform restoration company similar to Rocky Mountain Catastrophe. He found that company in Signal Building Company. In 2012, Davis and his business partner Frank Torre purchased Signal Building Company in Troy, Michigan. They immediately changed the name to Signal Restoration Services and recruited some of the best talent in the restoration industry. Within the first two years, Davis grew Signal’s revenue and profit by a multiple of more than 20 times. In 2015, Davis and Torre purchased PuroSystems, Inc., and the PuroClean Global franchise brand. Since then, PuroClean has doubled in size to 300+ locations. PuroClean is now the fastest-growing restoration franchise company in North America. Mark graduated from the University of Nebraska – Lincoln with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration. He lives in Michigan with his three children. Mark is a Director for Junior Achievement and a member of the Young President's Organization.
