Many of the teams Davidson directly supervised established franchise attendance records and reached record levels of profitability. In 1998, Davidson merged his company, Sports Marketing Solutions, with Sports Enterprises (owned by Matt Perry), to create NSS.

In his role as Chief Executive Officer for NSS, Davidson provides consulting services for the Atlanta Gladiators, an ECHL hockey team located in suburban Atlanta.

Senators Baseball, LLC retained Bill Davidson as CEO of the Class AA Eastern League Harrisburg Senators. In addition to management services, Davidson was instrumental in the programing, marketing and operations for the $45 million renovation of Metro Bank Park. The franchise was sold in 2015 to a local, minority investor at a substantial gain for NSS’s client.
