Ep. 41 – Kintec: Footwear & Orthotics COO, Mitch Dodd

Mitch Dodd is the COO of Kintec Footwear and Orthotics and he is our guest today.

Over the last 16.5 years at Kintec, Mitch has managed stores, overseen IT, marketing, inventory and team development. After attending University of Western Ontario for Kinesiology, he moved to Vancouver in 2001 and started working for Kintec at the bottom. In his current position as second in command, Mitch leads with his unique expertise of problem solving and creating a culture of growth.

Kintec Footwear and Orthotics is a company that provides education and health oriented footwear to keep their customers active for life. When they set out to build the company, Kintec did not want to just sell footwear – stores that sell shoes already exist. Kintec goes the extra mile by having Kintec Pedorthists, fitting experts, and orthotic specialists help their customers find the perfect foot solution so that they can stay active, on their feet, and achieve a healthier lifestyle.
