An industry icon and part of Spilo Worldwide for more than 40 years, Rosalyn A. Barton (Simon) passed away on July 26. She was the right hand to Charles G. Spilo, the company’s founder, and a guiding influence to the company ever since. For many years, she was responsible for overseeing the day-to-day activities of Spilo Worldwide. As executive vice president, she was also involved in purchasing, special projects, and general management.

But it was her way with people that set Barton apart from the rest. Customers, vendors, and coworkers marveled at her business intuition, gentle guidance, and powers of persuasion. Her true caring nature and honest interest in people encouraged them to open up to her. In 2005, she was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Professional Beauty Association to honor her impeccable work ethic, compassion, and enthusiasm for the industry she loved.

Says Marc Spilo, president of Spilo Worldwide, "As a friend and mentor, Roz was a unique individual; someone you could count on for honest opinions, thoughtful guidance, and absolute loyalty. If one is measured in life by the love, respect, and admiration of the people around them, then Roz Barton was truly a rich woman."
