“CanDo.com was a VC-funded startup company in the dot com era. The company’s charter was to become the leading commerce/content/community portal for people with disabilities. An extensive web site with ten thousand products was launched. As CEO of Can Do, I had the privilege to hire and work with Kevin Browett. As Senior VP, Kevin quickly became a key executive in the company and a mentor to most employees in several areas. Kevin is a top-notch expert in merchandising, consumer retail, and healthcare retail. Before joining Can Do, Kevin already had an impressive background. Kevin is talented, creative, dedicated, and passionate about his work. Kevin’s honesty, integrity, and sincerity are admirable. Kevin uniquely balances attention to detail, business sense, and customer advocacy. He has a solid grasp of strategy and tactics, for example exploring high-level company direction one hour and guiding staff in basket size optimization the next. Above all, Kevin is a committed team player and always comes through.”
