We’re kicking 2017 off with South Hills Volkswagen Finance & Sales Manager, Josh Detzel. Josh. He’s been a part of the Cochran family for nearly three years. Let’s see what we may not have known about him before:

  • My favorite book and reason why: I would rather watch ESPN.
  • My favorite inspirational quote: “You watch those nature documentaries on the cable? You see the one about lions? You got this lion. He’s the king of the jungle, huge mane out to here. He’s laying under a tree, in the middle of Africa. He’s so big, it’s so hot. He doesn’t want to move. Now the little lions come, they start messing with him. Biting his tail, biting his ears. He doesn’t do anything. The lioness, she starts messing with him. Coming over, making trouble. Still nothing. Now the other animals, they notice this. They start to move in. The jackals; hyenas. They’re barking at him, laughing at him. They nip his toes, and eat the food that’s in his domain. They do this, then they get closer and closer, bolder and bolder. Till one day, that lion gets up and tears the shit out of everybody. Runs like the wind, eats everything in his path. Cause every once in a while, the lion has to show the jackals, who he is.”— Christopher Walken, Poolhall Junkies
