Jimmy Findlay Hickey
Howdy Findlay Force! I just want to express how grateful I am to have the Findlay Force out there. Seriously, we wouldn't be here without you guys, and we are forever grateful to have such an amazing tribe of good people around our brand. We go against the grain, we aren't insiders or part of the "cool" scene. We are just a few people who are passionate about Findlay Hats and creating the best products & company we can. We are the hungriest brand on the face of the earth and we are ready to eat.
That's all for now. Just remember to do what you love, with the people you love.
Co-Founder & Head Seamstress
Sarah has been here since the beginning. From hand stitching every pocket in the original Findlay living room, to endless hours in the garage, and now her own department & office at the warehouse - her space is about the size of the original living room by the way.
If she isn't behind the sewing machines or serger, she is working on her own craft projects. She even has a tattoo of her main Singer sewing machine...dedication to the cause!
Production Force - Embroidery & Screen Printing
Mac is our most senior current employee. He started as a contracted screen printer for our original Findlay pockets and was brought on as a full-time production employee back in the warehouse. Since then he has mastered running our two, 15-head embroidery machines and has set up our screen printing zone. When not making hats, you can find him at festivals around the Northwest & making some delicious hot sauce.
Production Force - Head of Shipping
Savannah was at our opening party back in 2013 as a friend of our sponsored riders, little did we know just a few years later she would be the head of our Shipping Department. She started as an occasional helper when we needed an extra hand on larger orders. That position evolved to part-time and then a full-time spot as we grew and we needed more help. She is the most efficient shipper this side of the Mississippi and simply gets orders out the door. She is a dog mom and the Founder of the JT Foundation.
Retired pro snowboarder, Brett handles incoming collaboration and wholesale requests.
Delaney is the biggest dog lover on our team. She moved here from Detroit to work for us, specifically to help with our weekend shifts. Because the internet never closes, that means neither do we! Delaney is a crucial piece of our production team and the reason why we are able to get orders packed & shipped out every day of the week.
Laser | Sublimation | Science
Oliver is our resident mad scientist. A snowboarder & park digger, he has been crucial to helping our laser cutting & sublimation department thrive. He knows our complex machines inside & out and has helped our brand evolve to new levels by unlocking these tools of creation.
Alex AKA "Bil Al" has been designing with us for over a year now. We are grateful to have his unique & interesting style as the main graphic direction for our brand. As an Arizona native, he left the desert behind to come to join us in the rainy PNW. When he is not designing, he helps us with production needs & you may occasionally find him lending a hand with customer service & social media messaging.
Customer Service & Sales Force
Monique or "Mo" plays an extremely important role here at Findlay Hats. By overseeing our Customer Service department, she ensures we live up to our goal of giving the Findlay Force a 5-star experience. She also handles our warranty & returns department and helps make sure any hats that are sent to us for repairs are fixed & replaced asap. We hope you never have to talk to her because of an issue, but in the off chance that you do, she will get you taken care of!
Marketing & Content Creation
With a heavy focus on video production, Cara helps us to create & share content to be enjoyed by our community. You can find her helping with our Facebook messages & comments, and see her work by clicking on the Video page on our site.
Social Media Marketing
Based out of the Seattle area, Dylan has been a long time Findlay Force member. You can find him helping on our social media channels like Facebook & Instagram helping handle the crazy amount of incoming comments.
Originally from Texas, Carol has been a part of our production team for over a year. With one of the best attitudes around, she always brings a positive energy to the work zone. Happy to have Carol in our corner!

The Findlay Dogs
In loving memory
Harold "Fin" Findlay
My grandpa & best friend. World War II Vet who passed away prior to the company release. He is the inspiration for the Findlay name.
Justin "JT" Thornton
JT was a part-time employee back in the Findlay Garage. We had spent countless hours & late nights together in the garage, busting out orders. His positive & fearless attitude was an inspiration to us all, and he was taken from us too soon.
He was a loving, happy, spunky little man and we miss him dearly.
We got him as a puppy just a couple of months prior to the company launching in 2013, and he was the Findlay Dog ever since. He had spent countless hours in the original living room, to the Findlay Garage and now our warehouse with us. This place will never feel the same without him.
