Commenting on his appointment, Davis said: "Great creativity can and does come from anywhere. What I love about Cannes is that it recognises this truth across multiple disciplines on a scale unmatched by any other award festival. It's an honour to be leading the search for the world's best creativity in film and press advertising in 2008."
