In Memoriam: VNC Sales & Marketing's Marissa Martinez Meza, Beloved Co-Worker & Friend

Marissa Martinez Meza of VNC Sales & Marketing passed away July 10—days before the start of Cosmoprof North America/PBA Beauty Week 2015 in Las Vegas.

She worked as a corporate staff member at the manufacturers rep firm—becoming part of the VNC family in December 2004. In all, she worked for more than 20 years in the beauty industry.

Her beautiful smile instantly befriended everyone who came into contact with her—sales representatives, manufacturers and customers.
