Sandbox Story - Interview of Mr. Dave Brown


Mr. Dave Brown is the President and CEO of the doctor-alliance group, IDOC. I had the good fortune of getting to know Dave when he was leading J&J Vision - and it has been a pleasure to remain his friend as he has proceeded to commit his career to supporting ECPs.


In this Sandbox Story, Mr. Brown talks about his path in optometry, as well as his learned experience from working with private equity ownership. Learn about his efforts to develop a leadership mentality through a trusting, listening approach, as well as his use of mindfulness to become the best leader he can be.


Interesting stories include his teenage acting career in a television commercial (with rare 1980 video of the actual ad), as well as his Grandfather’s participation in World War I, with a special connection to Stonehenge. We also discuss experiences with people who were innovators who transformed his life, and methods employed to run an effective virtual workforce.
