Universal Branding & Media (UBM) enters into brand representation partnership with Operation Hat Trick (OHT). Universal Branding & Media is has been enlisted to help grow new OHT licensees, collaborations and supporters.

OHT got its start by giving hats to service members with head and brain injuries and soon realized that they could do even more by selling OHT merchandise and using the proceeds to support the recovery of service members and veterans. Since 2008, OHT has donated over $1.8 million to selected organizations and has helped fill some critical gaps in care.

Operation Hat Trick has now turned into a national movement where its brand and mission are embraced by colleges and universities across all 50 states, major sports teams like the NHL and NBA plus Minor League baseball teams, and over 100 companies like Sig Sauer, Texas Roadhouse, Spartan Race, the Lids Foundation and many others that help spread the word about veterans and our obligation to them. Every day, Operation Hat Trick reaches out to more fans, donors and partners to help improve the lives of veterans recovering from unthinkable injuries.

“I am very excited to partner with Universal Branding and Media. It gives Operation Hat Trick an opportunity to expand its reach into new areas with first class brands. Along with expansion comes more ability to support the recovery of wounded service members and veterans. The need is greater than ever and together with UBM and new partners we will be able to fill some critical gaps in care and make a difference together.” says Dot Sheehan, Founder & President, Operation Hat Trick.

“Universal Branding & Media has a long history of Army, Navy and Air Force family veterans, some of which spent time serving in WWII, it was a simple decision to represent Operation Hat Trick as a brand partner. Our team is honored because the brand speaks volumes to what can be accomplished when we open our hearts, get creative and give back to others.” says Amy Ingoldsby, VP Brand Development & Marketing, Universal Branding & Media.
