Back to Our Team

Bill Davidson is the Chief Executive Officer of National Sports Services. He has been involved in professional sports since 1982. Davidson has owned and operated several minor league hockey and baseball franchises. 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.

Davidson is an equity partner and managing member for four summer collegiate baseball ventures:  the Lafayette Aviators (Prospect League), the Johnstown Mill Rats (Prospect League), the Wilmington Sharks (Coastal Plain League) and the Spartanburgers (Coastal Plain League).  Davidson is currently serving as the President of the Prospect League.

NSS held an equity position with the Gwinnett / Atlanta Gladiators of the ECHL from 2003 through 2019 during which Davidson served as the CFO of the team.  He also served as the Alternative Governor for the franchise and was a member of numerous league committees.

Davidson provided consulting services to the Windy City Bulls, the NBADL affiliate (now G League) of the Chicago Bulls. The NBA team hired NSS to perform feasibility analysis and due diligence for the prospective launch of the franchise and subsequently provided counsel during the team’s first season of play which concluded in April, 2017.

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.

Previously, Davidson held ownership interests with the Wichita Falls Rustlers, Bakersfield Condors and Topeka ScareCrows hockey teams and the Midland Angels and Chattanooga Lookouts (AA Southern League affiliate of the Cincinnati Reds) baseball teams. He held various leadership positions (President, Vice-President and General Manager) with these teams as well as provided services to many other professional baseball and hockey franchises across the nation.

Davidson received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism and Public Relations from Purdue University and a Master of Education degree in Sports Administration from Wichita State University. He resides in Cleveland, Tennessee with his wife Susan and their two boys.
