MEET HEATHER

CEO

Heather Frigaard is a relationship marketing expert with over 20 years of marketing experience. She began her corporate career with a Fortune 500 company where she was instrumental in the national expansion of the company, including opening a new regional market in the state of Texas.

 

Heather embraced her entrepreneurial spirit by launching a direct sales business in 1999 where she developed a sales team of over 160 women. Although Heather achieved top sales for her region, she was driven to start her own company, living by the philosophy, “I don’t want to work for Mary Kay, I want to be Mary Kay.”

 

Through coupling extensive experience in business mentoring and consumer behaviors, along with superior marketing skills, Heather founded Life In Motion in March 2011, a full-service marketing firm. Life In Motion has assisted hundreds of companies in increasing their ROI and developed a loyal customer following while playing a key role on their journey to becoming experts in their industry.

 

Heather is happily married to her husband and has two beautiful children. She spends her free time on the football and basketball sidelines, supporting her children in their athletic ventures. Heather strongly believes that businesses have a responsibility to give back to the communities they serve. Heather and her family are avid supporters of the Community Store House, St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, and various programs which support the courageous military members and veterans of this country.

 Life in Motion’s creative offering has elevated OTA’s brand to that of modern leader in our industry. Their services alone have allowed us to make lasting impressions with more people than ever before. We take a lot of pride in our new market image, and we strive to live up to our new brand’s significance.”

– BRAD COX, OTA COMPRESSION

 What a pleasure it’s been working with you and your staff. I am amazed by the high level of service and the commitment to quality Life in Motion has provided. We couldn’t be happier with the end result of our website and to have achieved it in such a shot period of time is incredible. We look forward to working with Life in Motion again in the future.”

DEVIN FRIGAARD

CFO

Deven Frigaard has over 20 years of experience with a national Fortune 500 company where he was a senior manager. He hails from Washington state and moved to Texas in 2000 to follow new opportunities with the expansion of his company.

 

Deven’s professional passions lie in the responsibilities that come with success and, at times, failure. He firmly believes that if one remains true to their passion, prosperity and fulfillment will follow. Deven is driven by the success of his clients and the knowledge that his efforts are instrumental in the achievement of someone’s dream.

 

In his spare time, Deven enjoys watching his children, playing basketball and football, and spending time with his wife, Heather.

JOSEPH MANES

ACCOUNT MANAGER

Joseph Manes has 10 years of Apple sales experience, focused on business-to-business sales and support for new and growing companies. With sales running about $2 million a year, he helped in some small part to make Apple the largest company in the world.

 

In the decade before Apple, he was one of Aquent’s consultants, putting out fires for companies needing technical assistance with graphic design, marketing, and graphics systems support. During this time as an Aquent consultant, he spent four years at Lockheed Martin on the JSF Joint Fighter project, X35 Program. There, he helped put together the government bid and stayed through to the win of the government contract over Boeing’s bid. Prior to Lockheed Martin, he worked as a consultant for the Richardson Group on a team that managed the marketing for Oxygen, ID Software, Chick-fil-A, and Hummer.

 

Before Aquent, he was an artist doing illustration, drawing such diverse subjects as electronics, chemistry, excavation studies, high power for TU Electric, oil exploration, and general marketing support. With a strong technical side, most of his friends and contemporaries refer to him at the “Tech that Talks.” He loves meeting new people, and he never meets a stranger.

 

Born in Houston, Joseph spent his middle school years through college in Colorado, where life was about living in the great outdoors. He returned to Texas to work for Ross Perot’s company, EDS, just as Ross was exiting (what a ride that was). It’s great to be back home in Texas.
