FAHERTY BRAND

REPORTS TO: STORE LEADER

WHO ARE WE?

Founded in 2013 by Mike and Alex Faherty and Kerry Docherty, Faherty is a family-run lifestyle and apparel brand fueled by purpose and optimism. Our goal: to build a new American legacy by creating high-quality, sustainably-minded, feel-good favorites that will bring you joy to wear.

We feel a deep responsibility to do things differently: to promise comfort without compromising quality. To hold ourselves to a higher standard with a lower environmental impact. To leave the world a better place than we found it.

We recognize the impact the fashion industry has on the world, and were dedicated to learning how to be better stewards of the planet. We believe the power of conversation and connection can make real change, and were committed to supporting people and organizations doing work that we believe in.

Our passionate leadership team comes from different backgrounds, but share a singular goal: to deliver on our promise of comfort and craftsmanship. To work side-by-side in a collaborative, energetic, and creative environment every day, like the family we are.

We welcome everyone and we mean everyone. We believe a diversity of viewpoints, experiences, and backgrounds only serve to make our team stronger, which is why we strongly encourage those from historically and systemically marginalized communities to apply: BIPOC, women, and people in the LGBTQIA+ community, to name a few. We strive to lead consciously, bravely, and inclusively and to reflect those values in our work. We live by six key pillars:

Be The Best

Stay Authentic

Better Together

Spread Good Vibes

Deliver On Promises

Lead Consciously, Bravely and Inclusively

Remain compassionate. Stay focused. Seek joy. Lets make the world a better place.

  • You are a natural host of the party. You have an insatiable desire to engage with others and nurture relationships.
  • You were a born leader. You bring others together and strive to build dynamic, engaging, and fun teams.
  • You make mistakes (we all do!). You acknowledge your errors, learn from them, and move forward with your newfound wisdom.
  • You do not shy away from hard work. You know how to be resourceful and are not afraid to get your hands dirty.
  • You have an inquisitive mind. You are comfortable asking the uncomfortable questions and are not satisfied with the status quo.
