When recounting his rise in the gaming world, Kevin Brady starts at the beginning. “I was born in Chicago,” he tells us. But he didn’t stay long there. By the time he was in kindergarten, Brady was in Yardley, Pa., not far from where George Washington crossed the Delaware and not far from where he has ended up today. In this respect, Brady is an odd gaming exec—he’s never worked in Vegas. “Pennsylvania is home and the place where I want to be,” he says.
