“I’ve been friends with the Flylow guys for years and it’s great to finally be able to work with them,” Hinton says. “I’m looking forward to growing the brand and giving the Flylow sales reps and stores the support they need.”
Previously, Flylow co-founder and president Dan Abrams held the position of national sales manager. “Hiring Micah will help me focus on brand development and design,” Abrams said. “We’re really happy to have Micah on board. He brings a lot of experience and credibility in the ski and outdoor industry.”
