Bob Hood’s assessment of Brian King: “He is very professional, cuts to the chase, does not say flowery things but says straight out what he thinks you should do, and confronts issues whether they are hard or soft. King is a smart guy and he’s an action-oriented guy. You give him an assignment he gets it done quickly and it's good quality and makes sense.”
