Co-Founder James Lockhart - Sun50

My Role & Sun50's Culture

As co-founder, President and acting Chief Financial Officer, I enjoy working with the team and collaborating on strategic initiatives to move the company forward and grow the brand.

A Little about me

As a partner in a national CPA firm, I am the National Real Estate Practice leader for the entire firm. I have a proven track record in building teams, formulating and executing strategies, and growing revenue and profitability. Our practice revenue has tripled since my being part of the leadership team. Recently, I was named Real Estate CPA Of The Year at the 2020 Minnesota Real Estate Awards. The first ever recipient of this award.

I thoroughly enjoy working with the Sun50 team because of their dedication and passion for raising awareness and education for the prevention of skin cancer. The Sun50 team is extremely talented. Sun50 has clearly developed a very unique, elevated line of UPF clothing that does not currently exist in the UPF apparel landscape. The Sun50 team has built a platform in an industry which has needed an authentic voice for sometime.

Living a Balanced Life

My passion is helping companies to succeed, grow and thrive. I help entrepreneurs take their vision and make it a reality, which is truly gratifying.

I enjoy traveling with my family to warmer climates. Our trips usually involve an ocean.
