Mr Davies, junior minister in the Wales Office since 2019, replaces Sir Robert Buckland, who has left the cabinet.
 
The Monmouth MP was first elected to parliament in 2005 and an assembly member from 1999 to 2007.
 
His appointment means the government avoids criticism for having an MP representing a seat in England as secretary of state for Wales.
 
Sir Robert, MP for South Swindon, announced he had asked to leave the government earlier on Tuesday, but had not been expected to stay in the job.
 
He initially backed Mr Sunak in the summer's Tory leadership contest before switching to supporting to Liz Truss.
 
Mr Davies, a Welsh speaker, was also an assistant government whip from February 2020 to July this year and chaired the Welsh Affairs Select Committee for nine years.
 
He previously worked for British Steel, his family's shipping company, served in the Territorial Army and as a Special Constable with British Transport Police.
 
Welsh Conservative leader Andrew RT Davies said he "will be invaluable in ensuring Wales is at the heart of the UK Government, especially drawing on his experience as an assembly member before becoming an MP".
 
"I know he will continue to be a superb champion for our country now around the cabinet table.
 
"David has been a good friend to many of us, including myself over many years."
 
Sir Robert replaced Simon Hart as Welsh secretary in the summer, who has returned to government as the new chief whip.
