Woopid's Senior Management Team
Brandon S. Kane
Brandon S. Kane is responsible for the conceptualization of Woopid, and has been its President since the company’s inception. Brandon founded Woopid with the goal of creating the world’s most complete web destination for securing technology-related help via an innovative and proprietary intelligent video based tool. Mr. Kane is extremely facile with a very wide range of computer applications, and possesses a deep passion for all technologies. Brandon works very closely with the company’s outside web development professionals, crafting the architecture and implementation strategy for the various future releases, as well as the look and feel and functionality as relates to them. Being 100% committed to quality, Mr. Kane ensures that all product offerings are developed, introduced and maintained at the highest possible standards. Brandon also interfaces with the large body of freelancers to insure consistency in delivery and adherence to precisely detailed procedures and unwavering quality standards. Mr. Kane works very closely with Mr. Malanson on a wide range of strategic initiatives, corporate planning issues and general management projects. Starting a computer repair and education business when he was a very young man, Brandon learned quickly what it took to get his clientele up and running in the easiest and most efficient way possible. This experience would later spawn the underpinnings for Woopid.
Prior to Woopid, Brandon attended the University of Massachusetts Amherst, and then worked in the Management Information Systems Department in one of the largest privately owned corporate travel agencies in the world. He holds the distinction of being the youngest intern hired to work in the State House as part of a Massachusetts Governor's Administration.
Woopid 1.0 was launched in Spring of 2009 as a proof of concept, and has received a tremendous amount of traffic from all over the world. Mr. Kane and Woopid are frequently very positively quoted, referenced or featured in local, regional and national periodicals.
