Keir Dillon is on the go, big time.He shares his inspiration and his belief that not giving up and keeping a strong creative vision (that includes fun with friends) will power success. Keir grew up in a small-town in Pennsylvania and had a penchant for following his own path and entrepreneurialism from the beginning. He discovered professional snowboarding at 16 and during his years competing for Burton, Jake Burton (founder) became a father-figure and mentor. From Jake, Keir learned key skills for building brands, products and patents. After his 18-year career as a Burton athlete and nearly making it to the Olympics – his competitive snowboarding slowly came to an end.
It was at a missed X-Games finals that he and Denny Davis (co-founder) came up with the idea of Frends. It started as more of a brand concept than a product but the evolution was born. From there, with vision and passion, it’s grown and evolved into a global innovator in headphones. Frends founded the women’s-specific headphones category and it’s just getting started!
Listen along as I delve deeper into the conception and implementation of Frends with Keir.
