One of Kevin's areas of interest listed in detail on the company's website includes Lobbying, [the subject area recently of investigate reports by two reporters working in Phoenix], Private & Public sector engagement and Procurement Services.
Disclaimer: It is not known at this time how Mr. Thompson who represents District 6 - the fastest growing area in the City with the most residential, commercial and industrial investments and development - manages to separate his elected public life from his own business interests on the Mesa City Council, or if he has disclosed anything about his interests as outlined in his "areas of interest"
