Kevin Davey




 Kevin Davey notices every car on the road – he always has! As a kid, Matchbox didn’t have the cool American cars in their assortments so he cut cars out of National Geographic and Sports Illustrated magazines to play with on the floor. His “car passion” led him to a licensing and sales position a few years out of college (Marquette) with the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and this passion was later the foundation for starting GreenLight Collectibles in 2002.

Outside of work, he enjoys spending time with friends and family (married with two boys, 9 and 7), reading, participating in sports (tennis, basketball, skiing), and traveling.
