September 19, 2017, Los Angeles―When we asked Tim Davies, “Why Kevin?”, he responded, ““Well, Kevin is always there for you! He’s your best mate, and will always have your back. He’s the kind of guy you want to have a beer with whenever he’s in town. Kevin knows his stuff and works his ass off to make sure you get what you need and then some!” Sue Troyan then added, “Kevin is a state of mind.”
