It was 25 years ago, in 1989, that the U.S. Small Business Administration awarded our founder, leader, and mentor Gregory William Hind, the California and U.S. Region IX Small Business and Businessperson of the Year.
Greg’s vision and leadership transformed the fitness industry and earned himself this well-earned recognition. Just a few of his noteworthy impacts include:
- Developed and patented the first ever Water Polo protective earguard, the G-H Ear Guard.
Developed and patented the Compy Goggle, which outperformed all other goggles on the market.
- Developed a 2-Piece Competition Swimsuit for women that was the first to be worn during competition.
- Pioneered the development of technical, performance textiles for use in athletic apparel.
