Retired CEO of Lenscrafters David Browne on Faith and Work

Article written by Kevin Miller (Watch the Video Interview Here) - At the tender age of 29, David Browne was living every entrepreneur’s dream. As CEO and President of LensCrafters, the multi-million dollar eyewear company he co-founded, every sign indicated that his star would continue to rise.
