Hood Brothers Motivated By French Connection
Rick and Ted Hood have new businesses. The common denominators are not just their shared entrepreneurial genes.
Brothers Rick and Ted Hood worked for many years for their old man, Ted Hood, who owned Hood Sailmakers, Little Harbor Custom Yachts, and Hood Yacht Systems, among other companies. For a period before the family sold its interests in The Ted Hood Companies 10 years ago, Rick was president of the corporation, based in Portsmouth, Rhode Island. After the sale, Rick moved on to pursue interests in web and graphic design, but stayed in touch as webmaster for the new parent, The Hinckley Company. His brother, Ted, and their younger brother, Bob, continued working for the yacht brokerage and boatyard divisions.
