Lance Davis

Editorial director

Lance Davis is the editorial director for Bankrate. Lance leads a team responsible for creating educational content that guides people through the pivotal steps in their financial journey. He has held multiple roles on the Bankrate team, starting out as a copy editor and then focusing on building audiences through social media and email newsletters before taking on an editor role.

Lance learned the finer points of personal finance on the copy desk, where he was tasked with reading almost every article before it was published on the site, and saw how small moves today can have a big impact on your financial future. He developed a passion for sharing these lessons to help others budget their money, buy a house, save for retirement, build wealth and more.

When he’s not reading Bankrate articles or playing around on the retirement calculator, Lance enjoys following sports, going on runs and reading books. Lance is an Alabama native and graduated from Auburn University with a bachelor's degree in journalism.
