Randy R Brown

Founder & CEO

Randy is the Chief Commercial Officer for a leading U.S. Commercial-Industrial Door Repair Services Firm and the Founder & President of BC/DC (Breast Cancer – Dollars & Coins) – a 501c3 Not-for-Profit Charity that leverages the power of Classic Rock-n-Roll Music to Drive Donations for Breast Cancer Research. His classmate and longtime friend Kim Schmidt is the brainchild of the BC/DC idea and an 18-year breast cancer survivor herself.  As a musician inspired by her idea, Randy enthusiastically turned BC/DC into reality – generating over $10,000 in their first music-themed charity event in 2023.

We all have loved ones who have somehow directly or indirectly been impacted by this undiscriminating disease.  It's an idea she's had in mind for many years - and now we're finally bringing it to fruition as part of our BC/DC 501c3 Not-for-Profit Charity.
