Jimmy Hickey is the founder and owner of Findlay Hats, an action sports hat company he co-launched out of his living room in 2013.  He started out his professional life as a commercial photographer but was still looking for something else to pay the bills during slower winter months. That’s how Findlay Hats was born. “Built for good times,” Findlay Hats incorporate a unique stampede lace feature that copies Jimmy’s childhood invention of a shoelace chinstrap that secured his baseball hat from flying off while he was rafting. What started out as an idea to fill the off season when his photography business was slow — has turned into a thriving business with over 15 employees.
