Davis was one of four lawyers honored in the in-house counsel category.

Davis joined SugarHouse as senior counsel in 2015 and has been an invaluable asset to the company.

Working closely with the individual area operators allows for a greater understanding of the company’s needs. As an onsite resource, Davis has developed workplace policies and procedures to secure a positive impact on all levels of business operations. Davis’ dedication, adaptability and attention to detail have made him an essential member of the SugarHouse team.

“We are proud of the fantastic work that Evan does for SugarHouse,” said Wendy Hamilton, general manager of SugarHouse Casino. “Evan goes above and beyond every day to make sure that the casino and our team run smoothly. He’s a star!”

A dedicated Team Member, Davis volunteers with SugarHouse’s philanthropic efforts, which includes assisting at the Rizzo Police Athletic League center and delivering turkeys before Thanksgiving to those in need. Davis is also involved in the community by serving on the Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation board of directors.
