Bob Messina and his wife, Debra, moved to Frisco in 2000, after he accepted a position on an internal transfer to manage a sales team for a large computer company. Since then, he has retired from his corporate job and has worked with Mrs. Messina at Heritage Exteriors, a business she founded based on designing and installing landscapes and outdoor living areas. They recently sold the company and plan to retire after transitioning operations to the new owners.
Mr. Messina’s interest in Frisco’s historic roots is a driving factor in much of the work he does. “I have a passion to maintain the historic fabric of the old town, original roots of Frisco, by encouraging and helping restore rather than replicate older homes and businesses,” he says.
Mr. Messina is a member of the Miracle League of Frisco and St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church. He serves on the Downtown Advisory Board and has been a Frisco Downtown Merchants Association member since 2005. He is also one of the founding members of the Annual StrEATs Music Festival and serves at the Old Town Help Desk.
