Mark Davis Named Executive Director of Delaware Harness Racing Commission

DOVER, Del.- The acting executive director of the Delaware Harness Racing Commission has been named to the post permanently.

Mark Davis, the Delaware Department of Agriculture’s deputy principle assistant and policy advisor, had been acting director since September 2013 after previously serving as a liaison to the harness racing industry.

“Mark Davis has done an admirable job supporting the industry and leading the Commission’s regulatory efforts over the last eight months,” said Secretary of Agriculture Ed Kee. “This is an important part of our agricultural sector, and Mark will continue to work ensuring that the integrity and security of racing is paramount.”

The six-member Delaware Harness Racing Commission supported the appointment of Davis. The commission licenses owners, trainers, drivers, and grooms at Harrington Raceway and Dover Downs.

“I am honored by the Commission’s confidence, and look forward to continuing working with the industry to ensure fair and equitable races,” Davis said.

Davis began his career at DDA as a land-use planner, from 1995 to 2005, and previously worked at the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control as an environmental scientist, from 1991 to 1995. He holds a bachelor’s degree in environmental science from Livingston University. Harrington is home for Davis, his wife, Wende, and four children.
