Passing the Baton for the Heatsheets Events Business

CHICAGOAFM Heatsheets® (“Heatsheets”) announced today the departure of Stephanie Deigan, Director of Events, from the Company. Heatsheets is the leading provider of reflective technology products that offer protection from the cold, heat, wind and rain for the endurance event, outdoor enthusiast, military and public safety markets.

Stephanie has been actively involved with Heatsheets for more than 20 years and was instrumental in building the business and managing the long-term relationships that the Company has with its endurance sports partners, many of which have been users of Heatsheets finish line blankets for over 30 years. Heatsheets was founded almost 40 years ago by Stephanie’s father, David Deigan who retired from the Company in 2015, and has continued to be an industry leader and innovator with its endurance sports partners.

“Stephanie has been key in maintaining the relationships with our events customers and we are grateful that she remained with the Company after the ownership transition in 2014,” said Chris Falk, President of Heatsheets. “Her personal relationships, hard work and focus on the needs of our partners were an important part of our continued success in the space. We wish her nothing but the best in her future endeavors.”

The Company will continue to focus on ways that it can work more closely together with its’ partners in the endurance events space. As we seek to fill this critical position, the Heatsheets leadership team below will manage the accounts and look forward to working with its partners for the upcoming race season.
