Havertys appoints from within for new head of IT

ATLANTA — Havertys has promoted Greg Davis to senior vice president, information technology, responsible for Havertys’ technology systems and supporting the company’s strategic goals. He will report to Clarence Smith, chairman and CEO.

Ed Clary, who had earlier announced his retirement in July 2024 as executive vice president and chief information officer, will step down today from his current role and will serve as a strategic advisor until his retirement.

Davis joined Havertys in 1990 and has served as vice president, information technology development since 2011. He architected and led teams in building unified end-to-end operational systems from distribution to point-of-sale and Havertys.com, as well as managed the implementation of a modern data warehouse and the replatforming of the website on a suite of Adobe solutions.

“We are pleased to have Greg serve as head of our information technology team,” said  Smith. “His extensive knowledge of our systems and collaborative relationships with Havertys’ stakeholders positions him well for this critical role.”

He added, “Our information technology team is integral to our success, and we are grateful for Ed’s transformational leadership during his 33-year career with Havertys. Ed’s understanding of our business and passion for serving our customers is evidenced by the systems, infrastructure, and exceptional team he assembled. We wish Ed and his family all the very best in retirement.”
